Against The Current
Solomon King & The Chosen
Solomon King's music is... "Dark Romantic" embracing musical styles ranging from Rock to Blues to Americana but always uniquely Solomon King. If Nick Cave and ELO were to collaborate you might have something like "57 Octaves (below middle C)". If Johnny Cash replaced Otis Redding you might be listening to "Underground Brother". If Roy Orbison were to materialize with a new classic of longing and loss "Come Home Soon" would be streaming through your earbuds.
"A lucky seven combination of eclectic love songs and superb musicianship, Against the Current leans on many vibrant influences, where every sound has a musical quality... Lou Reed’s bristling tough sound (“Shadowland”); Jim Morrison’s blues (“Pussycat”); churning Stravinsky-like rhythms; and, a Bowie-like breezy, gorgeous title song that has a heroic “Heroes”-like vibe"
Ashley Jude Collie "Huffington Post"
Echoes of rock, blues, soul and country greats reverberate throughout Solomon King’s extensive repertoire and he’s as likely to introduce a packed club to a long lost Hank Williams gem as he is one of his signature contemporary originals. Unpredictable but never afraid to shake things up, “No bar too far, no hall too small,” could easily be the motto that describes how he and The Chosen approach fulfilling their collective musical goal.
