John King (22) is a Singer/Songwriter from Demorest, Ga. At 15, King formed his first successful rock band. However, after an inspiring trip to Nashville, King decided it was time to return to his Country roots. For the past year The John King Band has taken the Georgia Country Music scene by storm, exposing their artillery of original music. King’s voice resonates with down-home Southern grit, a sound reminiscent of a young Steve Earl. He has surrounded himself with one of the most talented young bands in the Southeast. Andrew King (18), King’s younger brother, is one of the most gifted drummers to come out of Georgia in years. Along with bassist Kevin Craig (22), JKB is grounded with a concrete rhythm section. Guitarists Parker Smith (21) and Joe Higgins (22) sport a brilliant double-lead harmony, digging up a sound that has been dormant since the glory days of Lynard Skynard and The Allman Brothers. If blazing twin lead guitar isn’t enough to catch your attention, the songs will. In a March 2011 interview King stated, “We put a lot of effort into our songwriting…that’s our No. 1 priority.” With a unique mix of Southern Rock and Country that is guaranteed to keep the crowd on the dance floor, this is a band you won’t regret seeing!
