King - aka Joe King, the guitarist for The Fray - is the surprise voice/writer behind my fave new pop tune, Need A Woman By Friday. Is this guy British? Amazingly not: he's from Colorado. The track sounds like a hit to my ears... and we need a trombone solo on radio don't we?
Not sure if anyone will get the reference, but he reminds me a bit of Kubb, who released the perfect Wicked Soul back in 2005.
King is working on a debut album and has a brief tour of Colorado coming:
April 25: Bluebird Theater, Denver
April 26: Aggie Theatre, Fort Collins
April 27: Black Sheep, Colorado Springs
April 28: Fox Theatre, Boulder
Need a Woman By Friday is on iTunes
