8. Virginia (The Marcus King Band, 2016)

“Marcus King is such an old soul – an amalgamation of the greatest blues, southern classic rock, and jam band heroes of the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s – yet brings that youthful glow that can appeal to a wide age range and will most definitely play an active roll in keeping analog music alive.”

7. One Day She’s Here (El Dorado, 2020)

“He is one of the best musicians you’ll see live in concert. He’s absolutely amazing. Bringing back what is missing in music. He doesn’t fit in just one genre. And he just keeps getting better every year.”

6. Plant Your Corn Early (The Marcus King Band, 2016)

“A great second cd from Marcus King Band. Although mostly blues tracks, there’s a bit of jazz, country and other influences. His playing is sensational, but it’s the voice that grabs my attention.”

5. Radio Soldier (The Marcus King Band, 2016)

“His guitar tone cuts through the mix and pairs beautifully with his soulful, gritty vocals. I couldn’t write a review without mentioning the very talented band he has behind him, and I also can’t forget the guests that appear on this album to boot. Marcus is a rising star. If you’re not on the bandwagon you soon will be! An amazing talent you shouldn’t miss.”
