Watch King Covering “Midnight Rider” At The Allman Brothers’ Big House Museum Via Guitar Player

One of the most tremendous voices and guitar-playing styles in the business – Live For Live Music

Teeming with energy and confidence – Greenville Journal

Guitar phenom and songwriter Marcus King will bring his namesake band to New York’s Mountain Jam in June 2016. The appearance will follow a fully-loaded winter tour including a highly anticipated appearance at SXSW in March, performing songs from their critically lauded debut album Soul Insight, out now on Evil Teen Records. The album and band were included in The Greenville Journal and CLTure’s Best of 2015 Lists.

Guitar Player has premiered the video of King’s cover of The Allman Brothers’ “Midnight Rider,” played on Duane Allman’s Gibson Hummingbird at The Big House Museum in Macon, GA. Watch the video here: bit.ly/1Zf36kV

The Marcus King Band features Marcus King on lead vocals and guitar, Jack Ryan on drums, Justin Johnson on trumpet and trombone, Stephen Campbell on bass and Matthew Jennings on keyboards. Presenting riff-driven rockers and big burnished tones—as well as a distinctive acoustic side—Soul Insight reveals King’s talents as performer, arranger and producer. With King’s singing slide resonator guitar and voice building to explosive crescendos, the album echoes the influence of his own guitar heroes including Warren Haynes, his Allman Brothers Band foil Derek Trucks and Jimi Hendrix as well as soul influences Marvin Gaye, Ray Lamontagne, Gary Clark Jr. and others. Proof of the 19-year-old’s virtuosity and vision are on full display within Soul Insight’s fiery mix of rock, blues, psychedelia, funk, soul and improvisation.
