Acoustic Guitar; Electric Guitar
There are those that play the blues and some people that have lived them, and there are those like SOLOMON KING who have done both. Hailing from Detroit, King’s days as an auto worker ended with the big downturn, so he grabbed a guitar and headed to LA. His 2008 album “Under The Sun” was nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Contemporary Blues Album” category and two of the songs from that album were featured in the first season of HBO’s “True Blood.” In 2009 he played Phil Spector in the feature film "The Phil Spector Incident". He's a guitar playing musical square peg in a round hole, and damned proud of it.
