The meteoric rise to prominence of British blues breakers King King has seen the racking up of 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 and Blues Festival in Peer and even Glastonbury.

The driving force behind King King’s unstoppable charge is frontman Alan Nimmo.

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 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.
