There’s a definite buzz surrounding King King’s third studio album, Reaching For The Light. When the shuffled playlist holds sway, along come nine hot tracks that defy you to press skip.
There were the five triumphs at the 2014 British Blues Awards (including gongs for ‘Best Album’ and ‘Best Band’). The nods came from top media tastemakers, from DJ Paul Jones to the Classic Rock: Blues Magazine. The blood and thunder of their international headline tours, and recent support slots with John Mayall gave the British blues- boom godfather a tough act to follow.
