Gideon King & City Blog with Opener Lau Noah
In 2015, Gideon King & City Blog (GKCB) released a full-length CD, City Blog. The music was met with wide critical acclaim, with The Huffington Post calling King a “musical genius.” GKCB released a follow up to Upscale Madhouse in October 2018. The full length album features John Scofield, Marc Broussard, Grace Weber, Nate Smith, Conrad Sewell, Donny McCaslin, Brendan Fletcher, Sonny Step, James Genus, Elliott Skinner, Luques Curtis, Carolyn Leonhart, Kevin Hays, Donald Edwards, Matt Powell, Willard Dyson, Vivian Sessoms, Roslyn McClure, Mike Rodriguez, Adrian Harpham, Nathan Peck, Kate Kay Es, Bryan Reeder, Seamus Blake, Itai Kriss Music, Alex Sipiagin, Bruce Flowers, Liam Budge, Mike Stephenson and David Kahne.
Gideon King & City Blog continue their remarkable sonic evolution with Love Knot, a dazzling, three-song EP released in May 2020. Hinting at everything from Seal and Lianne La Havas to Stevie Wonder and Steely Dan, the collection is both sophisticated and accessible, weaving its way through unexpected changes with lush arrangements and addictive hooks that blur the lines between jazz, rock, folk, and soul. On 7/30 GKCB released their latest single, "Whatchya Gonna Do" with a premiere on Soul Tracks. Performing often at Blue Note and City Winery, and having recently curated a showcase of vocalists for Sofar Sounds, King and the band show no signs of slowing down. The next track out is "Just Another Story" featuring Alita Moses.
"Some of the most complex and satisfying music you may ever hear, layered with impressive solos & variegated chord progressions." – The Huffington Post
