Busking in the New York City subway convinced Miss King that pursuing a career in music was worthwhile. Passerbys would ask for CDs, and while she didn’t have them initially, a performance at The Knitting Factory and a chance encounter with Velour Records head Jeff Krasno changed all that. Kaki King’s notoriety developed from her fret-tapping technique (video) featured on her earlier instrumental CDs. With her latest release, her imaginative songwriting and manual talent meet her tender voice.
