Twenty-three-year-old founder and front man Cameron Lavi-Jones, along with, drummer Alix Daniel, cellist Chet Peterson, and bassist Samy Garcia have a singular mission: grab heavy guitar/drums rock by the collar and drag it into the willing arms of the fresh new generation of fans currently fueling the world-wide resurgence of rock music. The world agrees with affirming descriptions including AfroPunk Magazine in October 2022 declaring “King Youngblood’s skill at transforming a small phrase into a massive hook is at this point unparalleled in the world of heavy music.” Their 2022 year has been explosive with singles and videos releasing every 30-45 days including the bangers – Too Late Too Soon, Cried In My Cadillac and Thousand Songs with a music video that premiered on noncommercial Seattle radio station favorite KEXP 90.3 FM. Big Thank released March 13, 2022 with a resoundingly loud and rocking celebration at the Crocodile’s Madam Lou room May 11, 2022 filled with industry folks and fans head banging with wild abandon. King Youngblood is the founder and centerpiece of the Black and Loud National and International Tour and Festival in partnership with Black and Loud’s title sponsor Jack Daniels. The next Black and Loud Fest is September 23, 2023 in Seattle, WA. Incessant national touring, a comic book series called Afrothunda depicting King Youngblood as rockers and super heroes from “Planet Xenon,” plus the AfroThunda Soundtrack released October 28, 2022 and more music videos and unique merchandise all are part of the cavalcade of activity erupting from King Youngblood in the wake of their breakthrough album Big Thank.
