Since the formation of The King’s Parade in 2015, the four-piece’s assured touch of classic Detroit blues with melodic, crossover pop has the band evoking the crafted sounds of The Black Keys, Michael Kiwanuka and Alabama Shakes.
After releasing their debut EP ‘Vagabond’, the band have picked up critical acclaim across CLASH, NOTION and EARMILK. Their follow up EP ‘Haze’ further solidified their reputation with tracks such as ‘Haze’ and ‘Mother Tongue’ being championed by the likes of THE INDEPENDENT and WONDERLAND.
The King’s Parade continue to refine a new soul blueprint that’s seeing a loyal and expectant fanbase grow by the day, cementing their status as one of the most naturally talented and hustling young acts this year.
At first, when you listen to Rachman’s music you’ll hear traces of folk, blues and soul. But when you listen more closely more aspects of the music reveal itself. The clear melodies, the intricate fingerpicking and the lyrics that build scenes in which you can wander endlessly. Rachman’s craft is all about the song, taking cues from heroes like: Stevie wonder, Bill Withers, The Fleet foxes and John Mayer. Small songs with big intent, songs that celebrate life. For this evening, he’ll be accompanied by Dimitri Vlaanderen on the drums.
