Kaki King with Lady Lamb the Beekeeper
Kaki King:

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.


Lady Lamb the Beekeeper:

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper is the musical moniker of Aly Spaltro. Aly grew up primarily in the south west (Arizona, California & Nevada) where she spent most of her early childhood years, never more content than when she was making oldies mix tapes with a boom box and flashlight in her closet.

In 2001, Aly and her family moved to Germany. She fell in love with the German language, but ultimately settled back to the southern part of her home state of Maine in 2004. Aly went back to the same coastal town where her heart was first broken. These pangs and others birthed Lady Lamb the Beekeeper; A project which began solely as a means of self expression and self-reflection during the long, dark winter of 2007 in the scalp of New England.

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper writes sprawling lyric and melody-based songs about lost, true & unrequited love; nostalgia, nectarine meat & wolf maulings; plum crumb cake & mustard colors; death & Guatemala; airplane rides & airplane crashes; lusting & pining; aubergine & almond colored bed sheets; balance beams hidden in the woods; desert mountain ranges & european bluffs; dreams & nightmares, and fawns & fawning.
