I first became aware of Marcus King earlier this year when I saw some clips of him playing with Billy Strings. He’s since made some big moves like debuting on the Grand Ole Opry and announcing the release of his first solo album. All of his previous records have been under the Marcus King Band. The new record called El Dorado is out January 17th, 2020 and is produced by Grammy Award winner Dan Auerbach. It promises to be a genre bending effort with sounds ranging from psychedelic rock to country soul and smooth southern R&B.
Look out for more detailed coverage on Marcus King soon from Gary Hayes Country. I hope to be able to catch one of his upcoming live shows soon and review that in addition to reviewing the album in January. In the meantime, here is the first single titled “The Well”.
