The Marcus King Band – S/T

October 7, 2016 (Concord) 20-year-old South Carolina based Marcus King’s sophomore release and first for Fantasy/Concord showcases King as a mature, well-developed and inspired songwriter, guitarist, singer and bandleader. The young phenom and his band’s dazzling musical abilities are evident throughout the album and capture the essence and intensity of the band’s live performances. Touching upon everything from funky R&B to Southern soul and Americana, songs, like “Ain’t Nothing Wrong With That”, “Radio Soldier”, “Self-Hatred” and “Jealous Man” express that of an old soul beyond King’s gifted youth.
