“To play a song and see somebody’s eyes light up or get a big smile on their face and to know that I have positively impacted their life in some way – for however brief a moment – is really fulfilling. It’s one thing to practice in your room and it’s fulfilling to get that new lick, but it’s not the same feeling as when you’re there in person, connecting with people. The best compliment I receive is when people say, ‘I like your style and you sound like you.’ I love that aspect of it because I’m just trying to do my own thing. Connecting with people through music is such a beautiful thing. It breaks down any and all barriers, whether racial, social or language barriers. Music is a language and we all understand it. ”

King Arthur Junior was born and raised in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. A talented athlete growing up, hockey was his main sport. He was recruited to play Division III college hockey at Castleton University. This led him to meet a friend who made him listen to The Allman Brothers Band "Live At The Fillmore East." King Arthur Junior’s life would be forever changed. Up to that point, he had only played acoustic guitar. His primary influence was Dave Matthews, but, once those electric blues lines were ingrained, an electric guitar was a must. With his first Telecaster at the age of 21, King Arthur Junior has set out to figure out how to play those lines just like the greats: Hendrix, Clapton, Allman, and all of the Kings.
