It is that drive, paired with raw talent and business savvy, that took John King out of a little mountain town in Georgia and into the spotlight opening for award-winning artists, playing over 150 dates per year, prior to having a booking agent.
John took serious interest in guitar when he realized that he could figure out how to play his favorite songs, but then went on to modify them. “That’s when I realized that I could write my own music. I started simply by playing familiar melodies and turning them into funny songs with lyrics about my friends.” In 2013, Black River Entertainment signed John King to their artist roster and one of the first steps since signing with Black River Entertainment is the newly signed deal with the Nashville based booking agency William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. Currently, John is in the studio recording his debut album on Black River Entertainment and continues to tour.
