About Marcus King: Marcus King’s debut solo album, El Dorado (produced by Dan Auerbach) is a contemporary exploration of southern R&B, country-soul, classic rock and blues. King’s arresting vocals feature as the lead instrument, taking center stage alongside subtle acoustics, bright pedal steel, raucous electric guitars and blistering solos – vocals which have quickly defined the 23-year-old phenom as one of the most soulful voices of his generation. King and his Marcus King Band will perform dates across Europe and Australia, as well as performing at Sweetwater 420 Festival and opening for Chris Stapleton on his US 2020 tour.
