Call & Response - Chris King Robinson

The Peterborough gunslinger on playing for Hells Angels, the aphrodisiac effects of his music, and life as Twitter’s most-followed blues guitarist…

The rise of Chris King Robinson is a thoroughly modern success story. In 2012, the young musician’s early YouTube videos were spotted and spread by influential US rock photographer Robert Knight. In 2013, he began an email bromance with Kenny Wayne Shepherd. In 2015, he’s trailed by an army of social media disciples who hang on his every tweet. And yet, when you spin the 20-year-old’s debut EP, Tell Me Why You’re Scared, you realise that behind the online savvy is an old-soul guitarist who cut his teeth on Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and has an innate sense of what makes great blues tick.
