Marquise Knox is a blues prodigy, who exploded on the St. Louis scene. Marquise grew up listening to Lightnin’ Hopkins, Muddy Waters, Johnny Lee Hooker, and B.B. and Albert King.
He’s since opened for B.B. King, and performed with legends like Henry Townsend, Louisiana Red, Robert Lockwood Jr., and Honeyboy Edwards!
One of the most exciting young players to emerge in St. Louis, Marquise embodies the soul and essence of a veteran bluesman, with his command of guitar and harmonica combining with his energetic showmanship.
“I want to be known and as big as B.B. King throughout the whole world. I want everyone to know about this kid that can play the blues as if I was there when it was made, and to show that the young kids can do something with their life.”
