A 23-year-old innovative songwriter and performer, Marcus King can simultaneously switch from swaggering rock to supersonic soul – with his vocal powers taking center stage on debut solo record El Dorado, out now. The album is a Dan Auerbach produced, genre-bending release from a world-class young talent, that will establish him as one of the most soulful voices of his generation. Bursting with charisma, talent and steadfast determination, last year the Greenville, South Carolina native put the pain of lost friends and broken hearts behind him and set out to Nashville TN. Moving to a new city is always a challenge, but for Marcus it was made a lot easier by having Dan Auerbach as a friend, who quickly introduced him to various key players in town and began collaborating with him at his Easy Eye Studio. The resulting record, El Dorado, due for release January 17th, 2020 via Fantasy Records, is a contemporary sonic exploration of classic rock, blues, southern R&B and country-soul where subtle acoustics and pedal steel shines bright alongside raucous electric guitars and blistering solos.
