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.

does she use the alias kaki king in her solo albums too? I'm not following

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?

Uh...actually, I've been a Tegan and Sara fan for almost a year now...I've just recently started listening to Kaki King...due to her guitar playing in The Con DVD by T&S

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
#18
She is amazzinggg. Not sure about her new album, but Untill we felt red and legs to make us longer are definatly some of my favourite albums of all time.
#19
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.

I heard "You Don't Have to Be Afraid" yesterday while riding around with some friends, and I was instantly blown away.

I had saw one of her videos on Youtube a long time ago through Stumble Upon, but didn't look her up more.

Anyway, I have "... Until we Felt Red", and am listening to it now. I love it.


Also, she's from Atlanta, which is amazing.
