CC Adcock learned the ropes of leading a band and creating his own sound when he left high school to tour with Bo Diddley and Buckwheat Zydeco. He was signed to Island Records at 22, and has since logged countless gigs with his band The Lafayette Marquis and as leader of the swamp-pop supergroup Lil’ Band O’ Gold.
As a record producer, he has earned multiple Grammy nominations for releases by legendary and emerging artists alike, all of which benefitted from his early apprenticeships under legendary record men and producers including Denny Cordell, Jack Nitzsche and Seymour Stein.
Adcock’s latest work as a solo artist is built around his longtime road band, The Lafayette Marquis. It is a sound that Rolling Stone describes as “hot, dark, swamp rock crackling with antique cool." MOJO exclaims "CC Adcock has a battered old jukebox for a brain." CC has played and recorded with the best of them; he can flat play guitar and with his latest batch of genre-blending new recordings, is perfectly poised to write the next significant chapter in the well pedigreed musical story of the American South.
