Marcus King

From Greenville, SC, Marcus King knew from an early age that his calling was to play music. He is a fourth generation musician who first began learning at 8 years old while playing alongside his father, uncles and grandfather. Who could have known this little boy would grow into the rock and roll Americana sensation that he is today. He began his official career with the formation of and nationwide touring of his band, The Marcus King Band. It was during this time that he met Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys, who helped him create and release his first solo album entitled El Dorado, which earned him a Grammy Award nomination in 2020. He has since expanded his career and performed alongside Chris Stapleton, Greta Van Fleet and Nathaniel Rateliff. Now, he is touring his brand new album called Young Blood.
