There is a distinct difference between musicians who play for profit and musicians who play for the passion of the craft. Jimmy King is one such musician who fits solidly in the latter category. He discovered music in middle school as a way to follow in his brother’s footsteps, but ended up carving out a niche for himself that shows not only his musical style but demonstrates his passion in a way that moves his audience every time he picks up his instrument.
