Marcus King Band - Soul Insight CD
"There's this young guitar player singer from South Carolina named Marcus King, who is starting to stir up quite a bit of dust, and I think the potential for his music is endless..." - Warren Haynes (Gov't Mule, The Allman Brothers, The Dead) to Rolling Stone Magazine, July 2015.
Call him the next Duane Allman or Derek Trucks, but whatever you do, don't call Marcus King a child prodigy. Sure, the 19 year old guitar shredder's talent shimmers with the same resonance as his heroes, but he's been wielding an axe since he learned to talk - he started playing when he was two, and got his first guitar (a Squier Strat) at age seven, landing his first paying gig a year later.
Now virtual road-warriors, Marcus and the band have toured throughout the south and southeast, developing a fervent fan base and honing their craft, their sound and spirit drawing significant influence from Allman and Haynes to Marvin Gay, Ray LaMontagne, Gary Clark Jr. and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
The band's Evil Teen debut SOUL INSIGHT is comprised of12 original tunes including three instrumentals, showcasing a literal lifetime of virtuosity and love for soul, blues, Southern rock and a great jam.
