Alan Nimmo, the charismatic bluesman, brings his band King King into the studio for a live session featuring songs from their new album

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.

Touring throughout Europe and Scandinavia, the band have attracted enthusiastic audiences both as an impressive live act and on the airwaves.

The driving force behind King King's unstoppable charge is Nimmo, a virtuoso frontman possessed of an almost impolite level of charisma and the talent to back it up. He’s 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 infectious and instantly recognisable.
