Kaki King Felt Red

(PR) Kaki King has never been one for convention. Her third album, ...Until We Felt Red, is certainly no exception. Over the last few years, she has enjoyed well-earned status as the zeit-girl of instrumental acoustic guitar; a gifted young ing´┐Żnue closing rank on the canonized heroes of the genre. Now, with ...Until We Felt Red, she bests herself and defies expectation again-ditching her acoustic for an electric, lap steel and perhaps, the most unexpected instrument of all: her own voice.

Having recently been emancipated from a recording contract with Epic Records, King made ...Until We Felt Red on her own terms (and dime), dropping off a near-finished master on the desk of her surprised (and elated) management team/label, Velour. King's return to her original, indie-label home feels like a good thing for all. "Kaki is one of those artists where the best thing you can do, from an A&R perspective, is to just let her go off and make some brilliant art," says manager Jeff Krasno, adding, "not that she would let it happen any other way."
