Marcus King's Memorable Tonight Show Performance

King showcased his multi-instrumental talents by starting off the performance on a white grand piano, accompanied by a trio of backup singers and an organist, which set the stage for his soulful voice to shine. The spotlight then shifted as King moved away from the piano to join his band and deliver a dynamic guitar solo, further energizing the audience.

A New Direction in 'Mood Swings'

Though known for his impressive guitar skills, King's forthcoming album, Mood Swings, represents a slight shift in focus with the intention to highlight his vocal prowess and heartfelt songwriting. The new song 'Delilah' is a prime example of this evolution, combining the familiar strain of his blues-rock guitar in the latter portion of the track with the deeper layers of his artistry.
