Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release. The Marcus King Band is influenced by a long list of musicians such as The Allman Brothers Band, Miles Davis, Soulive, Lettuce and others. King's talents and trajectory have already led his band across the country, and he's opening shows for the Foo Fighters, Johnny Winter and, of course, Gov't Mule and it's leader, Warren Haynes. King emerged from his native Greenville, South Carolina, and it's sister city Asheville, North Carolina, where Haynes was born. King hit Haynes' radar thanks to the reputation the young artist has earned with his incendiary live performances. In December 2014, King and his band were invited to perform as part of Haynes' annual Christmas Jam benefit, which occurs in Asheville's U.S. Cellular Center Arena, the prestigious club the Orange Peel and other rooms around the musician-and-artist-heavy mountain city.
