The New York-based singer-songwriter, composer, keyboardist, and trombonist is a graduate of the Grammy Award-winning High School For The Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA),. Since arriving in New York, he’s had opportunities to work with several notable artists such as Iggy Pop, Bonobo, Esperanza Spalding, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Mos Def, and many more.
King is gearing up for the release of his new EP titled A Loveless Sunken Sun later this year, and we’re streaming Fertility Filter the first sample from that project.
Talking about the track, King explains, “Fertility Filter is about my son. It talks about fading out the peripherals before he was born so I can focus on keeping him safe. The main lyric ‘Fade Out’ is aimed at fading out the distractions we meet along the way, especially being performing artists in the world today”.
This new cut offers us a window into his multi-layered style which strides the line between jazz, electroinic and indie.
We can’t wait to hear the rest of this record, so far, it sounds brilliant!
