Kaki King

The zeitgirl of instrumental guitar, Kaki King could hardly be expected to just stand still.  Lately she’s swapped her acoustic for an electric and her own voice.  Still fully capable of jaw-dropping pyrotechnics, King is self-assured and irreverent but not afraid to be vulnerable and disarmingly sweet.
