The Marcus King Band (from the album Carolina Confessions available on Fantasy Records)
By the time The Marcus King Band make their way through the raw revelations of “Confessions” all the sonic levels are in place to offer emotional support for the vocals/guitar playing combo of the group’s frontman. The recent release, Carolina Confessions, listens to Marcus King sing with an easy familiarity to the stories, his voice erasing the line between words and music. The rhythm falls like the backdrop in “Autumn Rains”, tumbling playfully while the steps are heavy as “Welcome ‘Round Here” follows the beat into a Southern Gothic sound and “Where I’m Headed” rides along with horns hanging of its Southern Rock strums.
Produced by Dave Cobb in Nashville, Carolina Confessions relates the personal experiences of Marcus King, his life playing across the songs, his disclosures of day-to-day life an inspirational DIY guide to feeling better about experience’s roller coaster ride. Entering numbers into a phone takes too long, Marcus King Band broadcasting bad decisions on the radio dial in “8 A.M.” while late night noir plays tag with the low mood of “Homesick” as Carolina Confessions lets guitar and voice take over the center stage spotlight, making an exit by handing over the broken pieces of its characters as they bid “Goodbye Carolina”.
