Marcus King Details New Album With Exciting Announcement Video

first_imgMarcus King has been on a tear recently. The up-and-coming blues artist has been touring all over the country and in Europe as he continues to impress with his soulful vocals and genre-bending guitar playing. King has made tons of fans during his rise through the music world, but he received perhaps the ultimate compliment when Warren Haynes agreed to produce his new album.Haynes recently posted about King on Facebook, saying that, “Marcus is the first player I’ve heard since Derek Trucks to play with the maturity of a musician well beyond his age. He’s very much influenced by the blues, but also by jazz, rock, soul music, and any timeless genres of music. You can hear the influences, but it all comes through him in his own unique way. He has one of those voices that instantly draws you in, and his guitar playing is an extension of his voice and vice versa.”Extremely kind words from an icon like Warren, who is known for helping bring up-and-coming bands to the forefront. As King explains in the attached video, “I didn’t have many friends growing up, so I’d sit at home and play guitar for most of the day. I was in this really dark place, really hurting for a while. I don’t want people to feel alone, because I felt really alone – not having anywhere else to turn, except to music. If people can relate to that, then I’ve done my job.”19-Year-Old Marcus King Talks Family, Friends And The Future Of His Music [Interview]Check out the video that Haynes posted along with his nice words, which is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the new album, with Haynes, King and his band in the studio.
