Gaining traction fast in the blues-rock genre, the Marcus King Band released its first album, Soul Insight, in 2015. The band has kept itself busy, releasing two more albums, The Marcus King Band and Carolina Confessions, in 2016 and 2018, respectively. All three albums have reached the Top 10 on the Billboard Blues Albums Chart with the two latest albums both climbing to No. 2. Carolina Confessions also earned the band the No. 55 spot on the Billboard US Top Current Albums chart and the No. 2 spot on the Heatseekers Albums chart. Songs such as "Homesick" and "Goodbye Carolina" are striking a chord with fans, and the band is currently touring the country promoting its music.
The Marcus King Band is led by the young singer, songwriter and guitarist Marcus King, who comes from a line of musicians. His great-grandfather was a fiddle player while his grandfather played both guitar and fiddle. Marcus is the son of Marvin King, a singer and guitarist who has toured the country with his group Marvin King and Blue Revival as well as with several other artists. Marcus found his first ally in the music industry when he attempted to slip a demo to Warren Haynes, the guitarist of the Allman Brothers. He eventually got his demo to Haynes through mutual friends, and Haynes began to mentor the young musician. Now recording music with his own band, Marcus and his bandmates create authentic, personal songs with emotional lyrics and have earned themselves a place in the American rock and soul music world.
