Kaki King with special guest Lady Lamb the Beekeeper
Hailed by Rolling Stone as "a genre unto herself," 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 (spanning Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn's Into The Wild to scoring  and appearing in as guitar-playing hand double  the acclaimed 2007 drama, August Rush), 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  to date, her only fully acoustic guitar recording  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. While her emblematic usage of imaginative tunings, rare instruments, and idiosyncratic percussive techniques are all featured to their fullest effect, the undeniable lodestar of Glow is Kaki King's 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."

"Lady Lamb the Beekeeper (née Aly Spaltro) hails from Portland, Maine, and introduced herself as "her band." Ballsy? Definitely, but she backed up her statement with her guttural, gorgeous voice reminiscent of Janis Joplin, without the twang. When she wasn't assaulting her axe, she mesmerized the crowd with her voice alone, her lyrics dwelling heavily on the physical aspects of love, making use of animal metaphors. Lady Lamb the Beekeeper doesn't look like a threat at first glance, but you'll be hearing more from her. Money on it."
