Kaki King Hits The Road




In support of her third album, Until We Felt Red - released yesterday! - Kaki King is going on a fall tour, kicking off September 7 in NYC. This album, and tour, will be a change from her usual acoustic guitar awesomeness - Kaki King has gone electric, and she even sings on some tracks. Also, she is no longer performing solo, as she recently recruited a band to join her live shows - drummer Matt Kankle (Blue Man Group) and keyboardist Dave Archer.

Until We Felt Red was financed entirely by Kaki herself, without any help from a label. She only enlisted help from a management team and her first label, Velour Music Group, to release the album.

This tour is under the fourth annual Yellow Umbrella Tour - a concert series created by cervical cancer survivor and musician Christine Baze. Baze will be supporting King on all dates, not only performing, but also educating the audience about cervical cancer's causes and prevention. Some of the proceeds from the tour will go to popsmear.org, a non-profit organization created by Baze to raise awareness about cervical cancer.
