Tony J King

Tony J King’s signature sound is hard to pin down. Cycling between the contemporary alt-roots sound, to the jiving, dirty tunes of the 40’s and 50’s, King oscillates between worlds, sounds and moods taking influences from the likes of Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Howling Wolf, Leadbelly and Robert Johnson.

With a few stories, guitar and half a drum kit, Tony J King creates a ramshackle music that has its roots in the street-corner blues and folk of the forties. Drawing on his experiences growing up in the ‘Northern Badlands’ of SA and the interesting and unique jobs he’s had since Tony J King weaves tales from his fascination with the unusual, the exotic and the downright bizarre delving into the darker and mysterious side of the flawed and the famous, the wild and the wicked.
