Bio: It’s been said that Solomon King’s finely honed musicianship and dynamic showmanship channels timeless artists like Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen, Johnny Cash, Nick Cave and Bob Dylan; that his music embraces everything from Rock, R&B, the Blues, and Americana to Classical music; that his songs feature rich lyrical monologues, delivered in a heartfelt storytelling fashion; and that his unique voice will pass this way but once. 
To date, Grammy-nominated Solomon King has blazed his own path from his humble beginnings in Detroit’s rock and Motown scene, then with a guitar on his back he found “Hollywood Underground” and classic blues deep in Los Angeles. All before striking out for Hawaii, Australia and Israel on tour. This last Fall, Solomon released No. 5, his fifth production since his 2008 debut that earned him his Grammy recognition. Two songs from that debut album, “Jack Me Up” and “Frankie and Johnnie,” were featured in the first season of HBO’s True Blood. Along the way, Solomon King has also expertly portrayed infamous music legend Phil Spector in the Phil Spector Incident movie. 
In recent years, Solomon has been focusing his efforts on touring all across California, the Pacific Northwest, and the South putting on intimate solo acoustic performances. He combines original material from his back-catalog with covers from some of his favorite artists, and has been getting great reception by a diverse audience of all ages.
