The John King Band
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.”
After catching the ear of Black River’s Vice President of A&R, renowned songwriter and producer Doug Johnson in late 2012, John King signed a publishing deal with Black River Publishing in conjunction with Razor & Tie.
In 2013, Black River Entertainment signed John King to their artist roster; along with “Dancing with the Stars” champion and acclaimed singer/songwriter Kellie Pickler and country music superstar Craig Morgan, (“This Ole Boy,” “International Harvester,” “What I Love About Sunday.”) Currently, John is in the studio recording his debut album on Black River Entertainment and continues to tour.
