KAKI KING plus Lady Lamb the Beekeeper
October 21, 2012
A visionary musician/artist hailed by Rolling Stone as ďa genre unto herself," with imaginative tunings, rare instruments, and idiosyncratic percussive techniques and remarkable, reverberant guitar
"Many of [Aly Spaltro's] Lady Lamb compositions are like beautiful 1,000-piece sonic jigsaw puzzles. Key changes, tempo shifts, gentle-to-explosive vocals and seeming non sequester lyrics combine to make little symphonies."

Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” Kaki King is a true iconoclast, a visionary musician/artist whose singular work rightly stands out amongst the easily formatted. Over her decade-long career thus far, the Brooklyn-based guitarist/composer has recorded five extraordinarily diverse and distinctive LPs, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks (spanning Golden Globe-nominated work on Sean Penn’s Into The Wild to scoring – and appearing in as guitar-playing hand double – the acclaimed 2007 drama, August Rush), and played to ever-growing audiences on innumerable world tours. Each twist and veer marked the turning of a page, another step forward on a truly exceptional musical path. Beginning with 2002’s Everybody Loves You – to date, her only fully acoustic guitar recording – King has expanded and reconceived the role of the solo instrumental artist, constantly kicking at the boundaries of what’s expected.

LADY LAMB THE BEEKEEPER:
Lady Lamb the Beekeeper is the musical moniker of Aly Spaltro. Aly primarily grew up in the south west --in Arizona and Nevada--where she spent most of her early childhood years, never more content than when she was making oldies mix tapes with a boombox & flashlight in her closet. Aly and her family moved to Germany for two years -- where she fell in love with the German language,-- before settling in her home state of Maine in 2004. She fell in love with more than a language for the first time in the southern part of Maine, in the same coastal town where her heart was first broken.
Out of these pangs and others came Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, a project which began solely as a means of self-expression & self-reflection during the long, dark winter of 2007 in the scalp of New England. Lady Lamb the Beekeeper writes sprawling, lyric & melody-based songs about lost , true & unrequited love, nostalgia, nectarine meat, wolf maulings, plum crumb cake & mustard colors, death & Guatemala, airplane rides & airplane crashes, lusting & pining, aubergine & almond colored bedsheets, balance beams hidden in the woods, desert mountain ranges, dreams & nightmares, fawns & fawning, & occasionally "The Neverending Story."
