If you spend five minutes on KING's website www.weareking.com you'll learn all there is to know about these 3 talented musical majesties. And if you're anything like me, you'll click the link entitled "See Our Music" and be moved to tears.

After releasing only 3 songs earlier this year, KING has become the most talked about and praised soul revival bands in a looong time. Let's just say Prince is a fan and Prince tours with 4 of the most amazing back-up divas out there (if that's even what you wanna call them) Not to mention, he's Prince.

These women, composed of 2 sisters and an epic friend, have found their sound by listening to the inner and outer voices they were blessed with! Their success has undoubtably come from their ability to trust themselves and proceed without question.

Mark my words, soul is back on the rise.

If you're like me you fall in love with one record at a time and blast your new obsession over and over until you find a new one. My new honey is a pair of Danish kids called Quadron. I have to comment on the sweet yet soulful vocals of Coco Hannibal. She reminds me immediately of another one of my dear favorites: Amel Larrieux with a sprinkle of Adele. Her sound rests unexpectedly on top of some quirky and unexpected chords created by partner Robin Hannibal. And how can you not love the incorporation of a brass section?

I'm in love with all of it. A new spin on soul gets me. Y'all know it does.
