Everybody Glows: B​–​Sides & Rarities

Kaki King Everybody Glows: B Sides & Rarities (November 4th, 2014)

USA Flag Kaki King — Everybody Glows: B​–​​Sides & Rarities

Master class album Kaki King — Everybody Glows: B​–​​Sides & Rarities / NOMINATED!
ζ    Hledala jsem ve starých poškrábaných CD, dávno zapomenutých harddiscích, a fuzzier corners/zákoutích mé paměti, nakonec jsem shromáždila sbírku. Myslím, že je to krásná reprezentace vývoje některých skladeb. Pro mě je to také hlas z mé minulosti; mé mladší já dělalo odvážné kytarové věci, než jsem pochopila význam něčeho z této činnosti.
ζ    Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” Kaki King is a true iconoclast. Over the past decade this Brooklyn–​based guitarist/composer has recorded 6 diverse & distinctive LPs, performed with Foo Fighters & Timbaland, contributed to film & TV soundtracks (August Rush & Sean Penn’s Into The Wild), & has toured world–​wide.

Childhood and early life:
ζ    King was born the first of two daughters. While still a small child, her father noticed her natural musical ability, and encouraged her interest in music. She was introduced to the guitar at the age of four and played for several years, but after taking up the drums a few years later, they became her primary instruments as an adolescent.
ζ    Convinced that her break in music would come from drumming, King played in bands in high school with classmate Morgan Jahnig, who would later become the bassist of Old Crow Medicine Show. On graduating from The Westminster Schools in Atlanta in 1998, the two friends attended New York University. While there, King picked up the guitar again, and revisited the finger–style techniques that intrigued her as a child. While at NYU she studied with Dr. Bill Rayner, an accomplished professor of guitar. From there, King played a few occasional gigs and busked in the New York City Subway
Style, techniques and instruments:
ζ    As a long–time Ovation player, King was invited to design her own custom guitar, the result being the Adamas 1581–KK model. Each guitar is signed by King, and she can be seen playing it often on tour and in The DVD for Tegan And Sara's The Con.
ζ    King's fingerstyle playing combines fret–tapping with slap bass techniques, using the guitar for percussive beats, as well as sound layering and looping. Her playing style has been compared to Michael Hedges and Preston Reed, the latter of whom she explicitly cites as an influence.
ζ    King uses Elixir Strings, particularly the Acoustic Light Guitar Strings on her custom Ovation Adamas guitar, and is a featured artist on the company's website.
