King is a Blue Ridge Mountain boy, born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina. A fourth-generation musician, he traces his lineage back to his fiddle-playing great grandfather, while his grandfather was a fiddler and guitarist. His dad is Marvin King, is a singer/guitarist who has toured nationally since the ‘70’s with various artists as well as his own group, Marvin King and Blue Revival. Since he was a teenager, he’s been trading licks with famous fans and mentors Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks whenever their paths have crossed.
Marcus King doesn’t strive for authenticity, he never had to—it’s busting out of his DNA in every note he plays and every word he sings. This focused, firmly rooted artist isn’t just perpetuating the proud legacy of American rock and soul music; with the musically enthralling, deeply personal new album, Carolina Confessions, he and his great band are adding their own eloquent chapter to that rich narrative.
“It was certainly a tough choice to leave my bread and butter gig but I could feel it in my heart that I needed to be singing and recording and performing my own music. I’ve never been happier!”
For the last five years McLean has never looked back and he’s been relentlessly touring and recording with Jamie McLean Band. Jamie McLean Band, which also features Brian Griffin on drums and Ben Mars on bass has released 5 albums Sunday Morning (2011), Time Of My Life (2011), Completely
(2010), American Heartache (2008) and This Time Around (2006).
Touring is a staple for Jamie McLean Band and they’ve hit the road with the likes of Gregg Allman, Dr. John, Taj Mahal, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Blues Traveler, North Mississippi Allstars, Joan Armatrading, Drive By Truckers and Gov’t Mule. Jamie Mclean Band has also appeared at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Mountain Jam, Gathering of the Vibes, Bele Chere, Ottawa Blues Fest, Quebec City Summer Fest, and Warren Haynes’ Christmas Jam to name a few. McLean has also enjoyed the sponsorship of Gibson Guitars, Fuchs Amplifiers, La Bella Strings, Blue Microphones, John Varvatos and Esquire Magazine.
Jamie McLean Band is now set to release their first and long awaited live album. Recorded at the famed Gibson Showroom in New York City Live At Gibson captures the band in its element. Live and in front of a captivated crowd is where Jamie McLean Band truly shines and this night was no different. The band dug deep into their catalog to produce a set list and
album that features their original brand of blues, rock and soul. Special guests like American Idol winner Taylor Hicks and Robert Randolph keys man Jason Crosby add some great flavor to the set. Bluesy staples like “Crazy About You” and “Country Living” get turned up even more in front of a crowd and JMB does more than justice to covers like Allman Brothers’ “Midnight Rider” and Otis Redding’s “Mr. Pitiful.”
Jamie McLean Band will tour behind their new album throughout the US and Canada this summer. Don’t miss their amazing live set when they roll into a town near you!
