A 12 track neo-soul album (57m 29s) — released February 5th 2016 on KING CREATIVE LLC

Twins Paris and Amber Strother and musical sister Anita Bias are dream-pop trio KING. In 2011, KING independently released their debut EP to much acclaim- The Story, Supernatural, and Hey made up the 3-piece introduction to their carefully crafted sound. Fueled by word of mouth excitement and social media posts from supporters including Prince, Gilles Peterson, Erykah Badu, Solange, Nile Rodgers, Sam Sparro, Janelle Monae, Questlove and a host of others, their story and songs have spread wide and made new fans of many. Since the release of their initial EP, KING have been touring, performing as a headlining act to sold out crowds in Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Chicago, London, and Amsterdam amidst a host of other US cities.

KING's eclectic sound is relatable yet not simply defined. Though they play with the boundaries of their many influences, throughout each song is the common thread of a certain soulful authenticity. The smooth vibe, intricate production, and harmonic style of their music evolved beautifully in their home studio, a product solely of the three women and a result of their Minneapolis and Los Angeles roots.

Paris produces KING's songs, while Amber and Anita are the primary singers. The three work together on songwriting and arrangements to create their unique sound, garnering such accolades as NPR's Song of the Day and 10 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing, Billboard's 10 Best R&B Songs of 2014, The Guardian's New Band of the Day and Best Albums of 2013, Metro UK's Singles of the Week, Glamour Magazine's 2013 Free Holiday Music Campaign, and the 55th GRAMMY Award for 'Move Love', their collaboration with Robert Glasper on his Best R&B Album 'Black Radio'. KING have completed their long-awaited debut album and are excited to invite listeners further into their sonic kingdom; listen to their conversation on NPR's All Things Considered about their music-making process for the upcoming record.
