“A genre unto herself” – Rolling Stone
Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” composer and guitarist Kaki King is a true iconoclast. Kaki King is known for her percussive and jazz-tinged melodies, energetic live shows, use of multiple tunings on acoustic and lap steel guitar, and her diverse range in different genres. Over the past 10 years, the Brooklyn-based artist has released six extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums, and performed with such icons as Foo Fighters and Timbaland. From 2015 to 2018, The Neck is a Bridge to the Body was Kaki King’s most prolific touring project and adventurous album — a provocative and beautiful piece that directly projects visual art onto her guitar — which, throughout the course of the piece, becomes her ontological tabula rasa.
“I’ve never seen anything like it … a sumptuous feast for the senses, a dizzying display of sound and vision by a guitarist already renowned for her innovation.” – Boston Globe
