Twins Paris and Amber Strother and musical sister Anita Bias are KING. In 2011 KING independently released their first EP to much acclaim; title track “The Story”, “Supernatural”, and “Hey” make up the 3-piece introduction to their carefully crafted dream-soul 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 accolades in/on Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NPR, Billboard, The New York Times, SPIN, The FADER, Vulture, The Guardian and Glamour among others, as well as 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 “We Are King” and are excited to invite listeners further into their sonic kingdom; released April 22, 2016 on their independent label, KING Creative.
