Marcus King, a soulful vocalist and an accomplished guitarist, has garnered widespread acclaim for his electrifying performances and insightful songwriting.

King's music seamlessly blends rock, soul, blues, and Americana, captivating audiences with his undeniable talent and heartfelt performances.
Over the past few years, Celisse’s momentum as a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, performer, and spoken word artist has led her to a multitude of ventures.
