Singer and songwriter J.D. King has been playing music since he was very young. King was also one half of The Olms with good friend Pete Yorn. With his first release in 2008 (Here’s J.D. King), King is already making waves with this upcoming release, Moon Gardens. The acclaimed artist and multi-instrumentalist creates character-driven and bluesy-rock songs that swings on the pendulum of psychedelia and nostalgia with 60’s pop influences. At one of L.A.’s hottest venues, Zebulon, J.D. King made a special appearance with his band and gave the crowd something they would not soon forget.
Dressed in a flamboyant and flashy outfit with a fedora, King’s wardrobe is an extension of his music and the style he represents. The four-piece band came to the stage with jangly pop that had the crowd cheering for more. J.D. King opened with the fantastic single “Midnight Rendezvous,” and immediately had the singing along to his tunes. The crooner serenaded the audience with the soft and warm ballad “Eloise” but then quickly turned it up with the rock-driven song “Mona.” A pro behind the mic, King wasted no time in belting out his heart and soul to the fans looking for something sharp that cut to the bone. The representation of bluesy and folk rock was evident in the set list as King finished strong with the lovely ballad, “Luna.” With the upcoming release of, Moon Gardens, J.D. King will be soon making the rounds with his new music for the world to hear. Be sure not to miss this extraordinary and wildly talented musician pn his quest to entertain them all.
