Marcus King puts you in the mood

March 20, 2024

A talented little tike

Hailing from Greenville, South Carolina, Marcus King first stepped onto the scene around the time he took his first steps. Literally. By age eight, he was on stage with his father, blues musician Marvin King. And at eleven he performed on his father’s album. Now, that’s a good way to cut your teeth. At the ripe old age of twenty seven, Marcus is cruising into fame-hood and all of our hearts.

Southern-fried soul music 

Marcus King is going places, but not without his Southern roots. What do you get when you combine Southern-fried psychedelic with honky tonk rock and sweet soul music? A singing and strumming Marcus King. His jams are emotional, moody and pure magic. Every note and intention can be heard and felt from King’s performance on our cardboard Fender Strat. His session featured horns, keys and all the production glory we come to love from Cardboard Sessions. 

New album. Who dis?

King’s performances are said to be a captivating journey through the heart and soul of American music. We do not disagree. For Cardboard Sessions #22, he debuted four singles from his new album “Mood Swings.” We are so excited and proud to host him in collaboration with the rockstars of Signal Snowboards and our own Ernest team.
