Malone Sibun Band

The UK based, Detroit soulful blues-rock star Marcus Malone has teamed up with the explosive British blues rock guitarist Innes Sibun to create the Malone Sibun Band.

The new band came about with a chance meeting at a show which uncovered a surprising amount of musical common ground. Both musicians had just enjoyed the busiest 12 months of their careers and it was time to appraise their respective situations.

As Innes Sibun explains: “When the chance comes along to play with a great musician who is travelling down the same musical road as you, then you jump at it. Listening to Marcus Malone I hear echoes of my favourite singers, Paul Rodgers, Otis Redding and early David Coverdale, but above all its Marcus’s own unmistakable style and delivery.”

Marcus further adds: “To say we are moving in the same direction musically is an understatement. Not only does Innis have shades of my favourite guitar players – Jimmy Page, Hendrix and Paul Kossoff – but he also has the soulful approach and the dynamics of BB and Albert King. Put all those influences together and you get the unique style of Innes Sibun.”

Marcus Malone has just enjoyed the most successful year of his career. His critically acclaimed album ‘A Better Man’ on Redline records has topped several ‘best of the year’ polls and he was also nominated as a finalist in the European Blues Awards.

The former UA and Motown, Motorcity artist had a diverse hard rock and soul background, before he settled in a blues/rock and direction and relocated to the UK. He played the Albert Hall with BB King and quickly established himself as a top flight blues rocker with a handful of excellent albums.

Innes Sibun was only in his 20’s when he joined Robert Plant’s ‘Fate of Nations’ world tour. An explosive player who is versatile enough to be able to slip from rock and blues into jazz and funk, he is also a pivotal member of Sari Schorr & The Engine Room.

Together they promise a powerful mix of rock, blues, soul and funk, all underpinned by Malone’s soulful song driven quality and triggered by Sibun’s high levels of intensity and his inherent melodic feel. It’s an exciting musical partnership born of the same musical influences, but one that offers them a broader canvas than before.
