℗ 2017 BIRN Cooperative RecordingsFotka uživatele Ben Tais Amundssen.Friends,
Ξ        I am so excited for this new record, Live at Berklee, to be released. I’m always trying to do something unknown and challenging with each new project, and believe me this was quite the undertaking. I chose a selection of pieces from my catalog, some of them very familiar but some that I felt didn’t get the attention and love they deserved at the time. Each tune had new life breathed into it by a different arranger, most notably the inimitable Tom Hagerman, as well as student arrangers and some arrangements by yours truly.
Ξ        The ensemble included myself, a doubled string quartet (4 violins, 2 violas, 2 cellos), as well as clarinet, bassoon, and trumpet. We had just a few rehearsals in Boston on some of the coldest days of the year, with the aim of getting the entire group ready for just two live shows, one of which would be the version of the record that you can now hear.
Ξ        Preparing to play old material perfectly + balancing the volume and timing of oneself + playing with an ensemble that is being musically directed and conducted + attempting to get the entire thing right in just two tries = a very weighty feat. Especially for someone like me who flunked theory 2 as an elective class freshman year and decided that formal musical training was not for me.  But with the patience and help of all the wonderful musicians around me I know that we nailed it. The result is a beautiful breath of life and a totally different look at material that spans my career. I sincerely hope you enjoy it.
Ξ        I was touring around the time of rehearsing and recording this album and am still touring, so be on the lookout for dates and some special performances for this release.
Please stay safe out there and global warming is real.
Thanks, KakiFotka uživatele Ben Tais Amundssen.About Kaki King
Ξ   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.
Ξ   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, she 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. In 2015, King released The Neck Is a Bridge to the Body, a companion piece to her ambitious multi~media performance of the same name. ~ Marisa Brown
