King Legend is a rock trio in San Diego.
Clarke: “We represent San Diego’s strong rock roots. Rock has been out of the public eye for a while now, forced underground by the popular influx of the pimple-free, fabricated Reggae, hip hop and DJ craze. Rock and roll is still alive and well in the dark clubs of North Park, the headphones of the soul skater, the house parties of Chula Vista and San Carlos… King legend represents the fire burning in the hearts and the minds of the San Diegans who still believe that music should be raw, gutsy and truthful.”
King Legend is: Blake Lindquist, Ryan Burdick, Joe Clarke
The San Diego rock trio performs original material featuring Joe Clarke’s snarling lyrics and devil-may-care vocal style. The soul of the band might be, at first glance, a driving vintage rock guitar sound; but upon closer inspection it is indisputably the rumbling and tumbling of San Diego’s most underrated rhythm section. Burdick’s drumming and Lindquist’s four-string bass coalesce in the chest.
They have been a group since 2010 and with over two hours of material they have performed over a hundred shows at venues ranging from San Diego’s most lovable dive bars to premier venues such as 4th and B, various festivals, large-scale youtube sensations and local TV.
Lindquist: “The band has been compared to groups like Jimmy Hendrix, White Stripes, Cage the Elephant, Kings of Leon which to us, is very cool. And we’re thankful for that.”
Burdick: “To us- it’s just Rock and Roll.”
