Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” composer and guitarist Kaki King is a true iconoclast. Over the past 10 years the Brooklyn-based artist has released six extraordinarily diverse and distinctive albums (from which B-sides & Rarities has been largely culled), performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks including Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s Into The Wild, and played to an increasingly fervent following of music lovers on innumerable world tours.
In addition to her own solo work, Kaki sometimes performs accompanied by NYC-based string quartet ETHEL. She also recently performed a Carnegie Hall premiere of a classical piece commissioned by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang.
with Special Guest Jacob Miller
A Wisconsin native, Jacob Miller moved to Portland the summer of 2009 via Amtrak with a suitcase and a Fender Jaguar. Just a year later - he left the city to travel North America to study and perform music while working on various farms and ranches between travels.
Nearly 2 years later, Miller returned to the Pacific Northwest to form and pursue roots band, Jacob Miller and the Bridge City Crooners. After touring heavily and releasing 4 studio albums, Jacob and the Crooners disbanded during the summer of 2017. Having played music full time for over a decade - the last 6 years of that with the Bridge City Crooners - Miller now focuses his efforts to pursue his solo music.
With a combined taste of folk/indie/pop, and the roots of American traditional music - Jacob Miller crafts a sound unique to his abilities and style.
