Chris Thomas King


New Orleans.com has a nice history of bluesman Chris Thomas King. Some of you may remember him from the George Clooney movie O Brother Where Art Thou. King played Tommy Johnson who's legend of selling his soul to the devil was mixed up with the more famous Robert Johnson. In fact the King shows up first on the movie standing on the crossroads just after he sold his soul to the devil.

However, King is much more than a delta bluesman and actor. King has also gained fame as a musican who has combined Hip Hop and blues. The article found HERE is very detailed and covers his career back into the early 90s.
