Energetic and dynamic Soulful Blues/Rock!

The meteoric rise to prominence of British blues breakers King King, has seen the racking up a host of accolades culminating in 2012’s Best Band and Best Album at the British Blues Awards.

Since they began touring three years ago, King King’s unique brand of multi-faceted blues rock has won over audiences as diverse as The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival, the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival, the internationally acclaimed Belgium Rhythm & Blues Festival in Peer and even Glastonbury.

The driving force behind King King’s unstoppable charge is Alan Nimmo, a virtuoso frontman possessed of an almost impolite level of charisma and the talent to back it up. An award winning bluesman in his own right and widely known across the UK and Europe. Nimmo’s full-blooded style, technical brilliance and impassioned vocals are infections and instantly recognisable.

Surrounding himself with the hottest talent currently working the scene has made King King an irresistible melting pot of influences. The result is a sound which is energetic, potent and irresistibly funky, to quote Guitar & Bass: ‘King King play the kind of blues that’ll lift the most stubborn of frowns’.

Winners of ‘Best Band’ & ‘Best Album’ 2012 in The British Blues Awards.

Winners of ‘Best Band’ & ‘Best Album’ in Blues Matters Magazine Writers Poll 2011.
