Hailed by Rolling Stone as "a genre unto itself," Kaki King is a true iconoclast, a visionary musician/artist whose singular work rightly stands out amongst the easily formatted. Over her decade-long career thus far, the Brooklyn-based guitarist/composer has recorded five extraordinarily diverse and distinctive LPs, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and the Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks, and played to ever-growing audiences on innumerable world tours. Each twist and veer marked the turning of a page, another step forward on a truly exceptional musical path. Beginning with 2002's Everybody Loves You, King has expanded and reconceived the role of the solo instrumental artist, constantly kicking at the boundaries of what's expected. Glow, her groundbreaking new Velour Music Group release, is both indescribable and definitive, an evocative, exuberant collection of genre agnostic soundscapes, rich with wit, theme, and inspired invention. From the chamberesque "Great Round Burn" through the propulsive, Celtic-colored "King Pizel," the album embraces a doggedly naturalist production ethos to showcase King's protean songwriting and mesmeric fretboard genius.
