Event: KING @ It’s A School Night
Los Angeles’s soul trio, who go by KING, left me in pure admiration with their intimate show two weeks ago at Hollywood’s Bardot for the weekly event It’s A School Night. Made up of twin sisters Paris and Amber Strother and musical partner Anita Bias, these ladies compose smooth neo-soul tunes with sophisticated vocal harmonies framed by the lustrous production set of the jazz-trained keyboardist and arranger Paris Strother. They opened their set with Supernatural, the link to my KING enthusiasm, taken from their independently 2011 release The Story and closed with their newest release Mister Chameleon, as a part of their forthcoming debut LP. This was the first time I caught the trio live and even with such a small and early set, the depth of performance and talent was profoundly eminent. The small details, from the production to the harmonies, consistently complimented each other in a way that melted together to form this luscious sound full of emotions.
Their debut LP is set to drop this coming fall. Stream Mister Chameleon below.
