The Mar­cus King Band

Snake­farm Records Re­mark­able ma­tu­rity from young ris­ing star Not so well known on this side of the At­lantic – but we sus­pect this will soon change – this is blues-rocker Mar­cus King’s third re­lease, and it’s a stonker. Re­mark­ably, Mar­cus is still only 22 years old and yet the level of ma­tu­rity here would lead you to sus­pect he was at least twice that age. Soul­ful vo­cals, pow­er­ful song­writ­ing, great gui­tar play­ing and im­mer­sive ar­range­ments add up to a joy­ful, up­beat al­bum. Tracks like mix the very best el­e­ments from Mo­town and South­ern rock with a dash of soul thrown in for good mea­sure. If you’re quick, you’ll catch him live in the UK this au­tumn. [DM] Stand­out track: For fans of: All­man Broth­ers, Doyle Bramhall II
