THE BEAUTY OF KING – Monday, Oct 10, 2016

Posted on September 28, 2016 in Music

The most attention grasping thing about King is their beauty. They are absolutely physically beautiful, but equally, and perhaps more important is their inner beauty which transitions into the angelically beautiful music they design and share with us.

These young ladies not only write, produce, play and sing their own compositions, but they also tackle the business side of the industry, releasing their creations on their own label, King Creative.

This L. A. based trio, composed of Anita Bias, along with twins Amber and Paris Strother, who originally hail from Minneapolis, stirred up the music industry from the start with the release of their 2011 EP, The Story. Heavy hitters like Questlove, Erykah Badu, and Prince were so impressed with them that word about their debut spread quickly. A meeting with Prince soon took place, which resulted in their opening for him on one his historic 21 Nights at the Forum concerts.

Taking their time to release their full-length debut, We Are KING, which came out in February of this year, the group was able to tour internationally and collaborate on recordings with various artists, including co-writing and singing on More Love, on the Robert Glasper Experiment’s Emmy winning album, Black Radio.

King will be performing songs from We Are KING, on their 29 date tour of the US and Canada, which makes a stop at the Dakota Jazz Club on Monday October 10th at 7:00PM.

These mystical melodies will transport us to many different places, and they will all maintain the underlying theme of beauty. As we experience this, we will recognize the beauty in their music, and in ourselves.

See you at the Dakota.
