BioA diminutive guitar hero playing instrumental compositions solo on an acoustic might be an unlikely thing these days, but Kaki King, an inventive and thoughtful musician, is all that. A lifetime of dedication to the instrument has enabled her to develop a wildly unique and highly listenable technique. That same dedication has also led her on a path that included: street busking in New York City subways; performing with the Blue Man Group; and now, a life as a touring musician playing in large halls. Her vast knowledge of musical theories, artists and concepts, as well as a strong inner compass and a life rich in experience, gives her a wisdom that is remarkable for such a young and idealistic performer. Amazingly, the uniqueness and universalness of her music brings her rave reviews from diverse communities, with accolades coming from country, jazz, experimental, rock and other music scenes.
