KING SIZE SLIM is an award winning performer and songwriter who has taken his unique roots sound and across 5 continents and countless countries. That sound emanates from a road-worn Resophonic guitar and powerful and direct vocal. He has performed both solo and with the KING SIZE SLIM band at Major festivals across the UK and Europe chalking up 1500 plus live shows. “… Here’s KING SIZE SLIM, I really like this record.” – Huey Morgan BBC Radio 2 / 6 Music He has toured with and supported many artists including Dawn Penn, Skip ‘Little Axe’ McDonald, Geno Washington and Nine Below Zero. Appearing as hand-picked special guest of Rock legends Queen at the BBC event ‘Queen Rock Big Ben’ led to an invitation to perform and record for Bahraini royalty. “The band seethe and sway behind him with that kind of easy camaraderie of musical veterans. There is a stripped-down drum kit dealing with minimalist rhythm and a honking grinding sax adding to the ribald, darkly poetic swing. Barelli has form, his stagecraft is impeccable. This is an earthy and beautiful music of the soul and of the earth, and you can’t help thinking of all the big festival stages that they could own.” – John Robb Louder Than War. February ’23 The September ’22 release ‘Songs from the M/V Sea Witch’ received radio play in North America, Australasia and Europe with the accompanying Theatrical show of the same name playing to sold out audiences.
