Following Lindsay Coulson’s headline gig in Glasgow with the award winning King King, the bass player has stepped down from the band he co-founded a decade ago. His replacement has been confirmed as Zander Greenshields.
Greenshields has past form with King King frontman Alan Nimmo. Not only having previously played in The Nimmo Brothers (also featuring Stevie Nimmo), the fellow Glaswegians’ first band was playing together as Silvertrain.
Subsequently, Greenshields played bass with the Blackwater Blues Band, and recently departed drumming legend Ted McKenna (SAHB etc).
The reconstituted King King will be touring France, Norway and the Netherlands from late March onwards, heading to the Black Country on 11th May to play KK’s Steel Mill in Wolverhampton and joining Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping the Blues Alive At Sea Mediterranean Blues Cruise in August.
In between all that, King King will be recording their follow-up to 2017’s hit album Exile & Grace.
