Kaki King

Kaki King's childhood passions were the drums and Brit-pop, and she figured if she ever made it big it would be because of her skills behind the kit. However, her musical talents didn't stop there: she also played the guitar, and though she learned Beatles and Fleetwood Mac songbooks, she found herself drawn to the styles of Preston Reed and Michael Hedges. Moving from Atlanta to New York to attend college, King got her first taste of solo guitar performance thanks to campus open-mike nights, and upon graduation in 2001 she decided to pursue the instrument more seriously. She started playing in subways, a venue that helped her develop her percussive technique, and when passengers would ask her if she had CDs, she realized that she could possibly make a living as a musician.

A copy of her 2002 demo got her a short gig at the Tap Bar in the Knitting Factory, where she was seen by Velour Records head Jeff Krasno, who released her debut, Everybody Loves You, the following year. King moved to Epic imprint Red Ink for her second album, 2004's Legs to Make Us Longer, but she returned to Velour for 2006's Until We Felt Red, which, in addition to including other instrumentation (which was also found on Legs to Make Us Longer), had King's singing prominently featured. After a busy 2007 -- not only was the guitarist recording her fourth full-length, she also appeared on albums from Tegan and Sara and the Foo Fighters and contributed to the soundtracks for Into the Wild and August Rush -- King released Dreaming of Revenge in March of 2008. After a world tour, King stayed active. Her album Junior was released on Cooking Vinyl/Rounder in 2010. She also co-produced a song for Miley Cyrus with Timbaland. In the fall of 2012, King issued Glow, a collection of instrumentals on which she was backed by a string quartet, bagpipes, organic percussion, and individually designed soundscapes for each track. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

I had the privilege of inviting and interviewing Kaki at XM radio in 2006 where I did program an eclectic channel called Fine Tuning. I still love her work.

bad a**
Ironically, fans are usually more abrasive towards immitation than the artists themselves. Probably because FAN-addicts typically don't play any intruments, too busy downing the people that do.

If you are going to be a Michael Hedges fan LEARN TO SPELL HIS NAME, you idiot. Kaki King is awesome.
Like her sound. Great tone.
Not sure what the issue is with the delinquents below but she has a very, very nice sound to her music. Seriously, all caps, '4', '2', 'U', and you can barely hold together a sentence, who's not going to think you're just a couple of fan boy douchebags?
ANOTHER MICHAEL HEDGES WANT-A-BE. IF YOU WANT THE REAL THING LISTEN TO MICHAEL !!!
Disgusting!! ! I had the honer of seeing Michael Hedges and if she wants to slop up and ruin a beautiful piece of masterfull work please DON'T RECORD IT!!! SHAME ON YOU!!!! And 4 all who want 2 hear pick up Michael Hedges Tap Root and U will understand
Moving

Kaki King has been called a guitar god by Guitar Magazine. This is maybe an understateme n t , as she has shown a mastership of the instrument in her personal style. Accompanied with her own vocals, Kaki is a remarkable artist.

LOVE HER!!!!!
so awesome!!!! secret songs are where she really turns it out
Saw her as an opening act for Robert Randolph and Citizen Cope about 7 years ago, thought she was a guitar tech setting up, then she sat down and blew everybody's mind. Simply amazing to watch live, been a huge fan ever since.
Love her!
ya, shes wonderful
I want her to have my baby!!!
She's talented
kpanegasser

Saw Kaki perform at a cool restaurant in '04 or '05. Amazing performer! When I heard the music in August Rush, I knew that unmistakable sound.
We should make babies together!
her music is awesome <3
Saw Kaki and the guys at the Varsity in Minneapolis last night... excellent show. Both her playing and stage presence are unique and leave you wanting more.
is this also the artist who did most of the music for the August Rush soundtrack? if it is, put that in her bio as well. amazing.
kevinecox
