Kaki King: New Album, North American Tour


Velour Music Group is excited to announce that Kaki King will release her new record, Glow, on October 9, 2012. D. James Goodwin produced and engineered the record along with long-time King band mate and live sound engineer Dan Brantigan. Brantigan guests on EVI; Richmond Johnson plays Bagpipes and the strings were provided by the New York-based quartet ETHEL.

Glow is both indescribable and definitive, an evocative, exuberant collection of genre-agnostic soundscapes, rich with wit, theme, and inspired invention. While King’s emblematic usage of imaginative tunings, rare instruments, and idiosyncratic percussive techniques are all featured to their fullest effect, the undeniable lodestar of Glow is her remarkable, reverberant guitar.

“This is a guitar record,” she says. “This is the sound of a person playing guitar. Whatever additions we made, the fundamental of this record is still one person playing a guitar. That’s who I am.”

Kaki King will be touring this Fall to promote Glow. See all dates below.
