If you've seen Solomon King live, you know he thrives under the spotlight. "I like to be on stage with people, I like the chemistry of what happens with a band and what happens with other musicians." says Solomon talking about live music. Solomon can be found in the heart of Los Angeles playing concert venues and Blues jams around the city.
Over the past several months Solomon has taken up residency at The Norwood 16200 Nordhoff St North Hills, CA 91343. Wednesday nights from 8:30 p.m to 10:00 p.m. Solomon leads his band "the Chosen" through previously recorded hits and introduces new material.
A lot of my songs have developed in environments where nobody knows what is going to happen next. I dont sit around with guys and rehearse for three months. Most everything is born from an idea that I bring to the stage to hear how the band will develop it - and how the audience reacts to it. I can usually tell from a single run through if the song is gonna work. If it does I bring it back to the next show.
Also, there is a great community of musicians in Los Angeles. We always have surprise guest stars. Doing small clubs gives us an opportunity to stretch out in ways that bigger shows dont permit
