Kaki King

Oh my god. I hadn't been in love like this with an artist for a long time.
Mix of folk, shoegaze, pop.. whatever. simply beautiful music.

I really adore her, and I like the new album a lot. She just released the video for "Pull Me Out Alive."

Some of her songs are really brilliant. A few of them can be boring though, or even annoying. Her albums, individually, aren't too consistent. That's really what I'm saying.

She's recorded 4 solo albums so far as Kaki King. She also released that Day Sleeper EP with Dan Brantigan. Technically all but the Day Sleeper EP are solo records. Also, I think her first name is actually Katherine. I vaguely remember reading that somewhere.

Nice avatar. I'll just assume you caught the "special guest" in the Pull Me Out Alive music video?

Oh, I wasn't implying you didn't know about them until then, apologies.

I like her music, but I dont like her, seeing as how she is a lesbian...but her music was good in August Rush.

I saw her a couple days ago...she was amazing, and to sponj I actually preferred her voice live to her recordings. I was going to ask her what tuning shes plays in but realized she basically plays in a different tuning for every single song. She had like 7 guitars on stage, and re-tuned each one every time she picked it up

Does anyone know the tunings she uses and for which songs?

I figured out these so far (thanks to you tube):

You Don't Have to be Afraid: CGCGCd
Jessica and Never Said I Love You: Standard

I'm speculating that Fortuna is in her common CGDGAd tuning, but the song is too hard for me. Someone needs to help me out with that. Also, I want to learn how to play Everyone Loves You. PM me if you want to discuss it.
