Marcus King emerged in the music scene in 2013. Best known for his work as lead singer and frontman for the Marcus King Band, King pursued his solo career in 2019 and released his debut album, El Dorado, in 2020. For his first solo record, King enlisted The Black Keys frontman, Dan Auerbach, as producer. During an interview, Auerbach expressed his excitement about working with King on this long-awaited project. "It’s staggering how good he is, how crazy-good his vocals are, how he can go anywhere on the guitar.” The album is an eclectic blues-rock record with a nostalgic vibe – reminiscent of ‘60s soul music. The album received rave reviews from fans and critics, with some writers praising it for being “inspiring and impressive” and defining it as King’s “finest recorded moment.” El Dorado was nominated for Best Americana Album at the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards.
This year, King is set to release his follow-up album Young Blood, which will be supported by a massive tour. To announce the dates, he took to his Instagram and expressed his excitement about hitting the road. “This fall tour is going to be our biggest one YET. It has been a long time in the making, playing some of our favorite venues in the country, bringing a FULL night of rock n roll, love and laughs! Can’t wait to bring this show to your town,” King mentioned.
