On Oct. 5, 2018, guitarist, singer and songwriter Marcus King releases the new Marcus King Band album "Carolina Confessions" It will be almost two years to the day since he released his self-titled Fantasy Records debut, and since then, King has managed to create a place for himself amongst the company of guitar virtuosos like Derek Trucksand Gary Clark Jr. in the current rock music scene. Fans of Southern rock and soul music might hear familiar touchstones like The Allman Brothers and Otis Redding in King's music. Raised in Greenville, South Carolina, Marcus King was brought up on the blues, playing shows as a pre-teen sideman with his father—bluesman Marvin King. King operates within the fiery brand of American roots music that he calls "soul-influenced psychedelic southern rock." He has gorgeous, rough-hewn vocals, soaring guitar work and heartfelt songwriting all amidst a group of masterful musicians who, together, are quickly becoming one of the country’s most sought after live acts.
