When you hear Marcus King and his mighty band, you hear the guitar precision of a player with 30+ years of experience on the fretboard. His voice is raspy and soulful, as if he's had a two pack a day habit for the better part of his life. So it's a little surprising to find out the kid is 22.
Marcus King began playing guitar at age 8 and was performing in clubs with his own band by the time he was a teenager. In 2015, the group released their first album Soul Insight. Finding the ears of former Allman Brothers Band member Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule), the album was eventually reissued on Haynes' label Evil Teen Records and charted on the Blues Albums Chart at #8.
With Haynes in his corner, King returned to the studio, this time with a new band, and released The Marcus King Band in late 2016. This time, the album charted at #2 on the Blues Albums Chart.
Carolina Confessions was mixed and produced by Dave Cobb in RCA Studio A. The record is pressed on 180g Audiophile vinyl and comes packaged in a Gatefold LP Jacket!
