I’m always on the lookout for something new and interesting, musically speaking. To my friends and family, this comes as no surpise. They’re used to hearing me rave about some artist or another every once in a while. Every so often I run across an artist that just makes my jaw drop. Kaki King is just such an artist.
I saw her on the Conan O’Brien show a few weeks ago and was floored. Just an accoustic guitar and tons of technique. She uses a tapping-on/off technique (fingerstyle) to create truly amazing music.
I tried to write down her name so I could buy the CD, but heard it wrong. For three weeks now I’ve been trying to find Cali King or Kali King and failing miserably. Talking to my friend Hjalmer, I mentioned my dilemma and he set me straight.
Don’t make the same mistake I did. Don’t hesitate. Go buy this CD! It’s at the top of my Now Hear This list.
