Lightnin Malcolm performing at Martin’s Downtown this Friday, November 13th | Doors open at 8pm!
Cutting Edge Bluesman LIGHTNIN MALCOLM, a charismatic and energetic guitar slinger with a deep soulful voice, has taken his irresistible dance grooves from Juke Joint teen years as a one-man-band to world stages with mainstream artists such as Robert Plant, Jimmy Buffett, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, The Black Keys, Widespread Panic, Big Head Todd, North Mississippi Allstars, Lucero, and Gary Clark Jr.
The Mississippi based multi-instrumentalist combines the tribal rhythms and raw electrifying power of the Hill Country Blues with melodic songwriting wisdom of heroes Bob Marley, Sam Cooke, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix. MALCOLM fuses elements of Funk, Soul, Rock, Reggae, Hip Hop, West African World Beat, Gospel and Country to create an Authentic Signature sound in modern day World Roots Music.
MALCOLM won Blues Music Awards Best Debut Artist in 2009 and has since toured the globe, releasing critically acclaimed albums “RENEGADE” and “ROUGH OUT THERE.” He is a rhythmic force of nature, with a wild droning guitar style consisting of bass, rhythm, and lead syncopated together into churning tribal grooves that take listeners by storm. Everywhere we go, people say we sound like a 5 or 6-piece band,” he says.
MALCOLM has made a major impact on the recent Mississippi Blues scene, bridging younger generational sounds with a telepathic feel to play with traditional Legends like Hubert Sumlin, R.L. Burnside, Honey Boy Edwards, James Cotton, T Model Ford, Robert Belfour, Big Jack Johnson, and Charlie Musselwhite…
