Despite only being in his early twenties, this singer and songwriter has one on the most remarkable soul voices around. Hailing from Greenville, South-Carolina, he was brought up on blues and performed as a teen alongside his father, fellow bluesman Marvin King. Also a gifted blues guitarist, he is the front man of The Marcus King Band, which debuted with their 2015 album “Soul Insight”.
Musically describing a roadtrip to see a girl and stopping along the way to get a bottle of wine and pick wildflowers, his new single is a smooth slice of vintage soul. Taken from his upcoming solo album “El Dorado”, expected on January 17, 2020, it combines gospel influences, an emotional blues guitar and the rawness of his soul-drenched voice to create one of the most spectacular sonic experiences.
