Well. @IndiaBenet is starting to let her Music Light Shine. And I like what I hear/see. YouTube with me:

India Benet. Daughter of Eric Benet. It looks like she picked up the musical gene. Clearly. She first caught my attention when my girl Stephanie sent me a link of her doing an adorable and WELL done Cover/Medley of Nikki Minaj’s “Your Love” with Maroon 5’s “She Will Be Loved” on guitar. Yeah. Your initial reaction is probably “WTF” and you THINK it wouldn’t work… until India demonstrates the ability to link songs together in any key or tempo. As a Music Nerd… that is impressive. And displays massive talent.

Freaked out by how fast kids grow up and how much talent this one happens to be oozing, I instantly went to her YouTube page and searched related links to find out more on this kid’s awesome. And surely enough… her and Daddy have been at it for a while.

Kinda adorable… and really well done.
She took a break for a minute, probably just being cute and living life. But just recently, shes posted another video of her doing another wonderful cover. This time shes on the piano, singing her little heart out to A Fine Frenzy’s “Almost Lover.”

Interesting to say the least.
Welp, from here, its all about hoping that she gets out there the right way, and has the right people behind her music, if shes serious. And she should be. The talent is definitely there. Check her out on her twitter page, and enjoy.

Kaki King: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon – 4.14.2010 Confirmed | “Junior” Sample Leaks on YouTube

Kaki King Junior

bet you didnt know she could do that.

Hi people. Let me take some time to get you updated on Kaki.
Now I can officially confirm that Kaki is set to be the Musical Guest on Jimmy Fallon. She’ll be on the day after Junior Drops in the States, to promote the new album. Yes. Its set to be pretty #$&*^*@#^!!!! Awesome. Song Performed will probably be “Falling Day,” but it’s not official yet. Once I know, I’ll let you know.

Second… There is no leak on Junior yet. The album has been released in Europe, but remember, they get different songs/tracklisting than us. However, some super nerds got together and took the samples from the Amazon Preview of the album, and put together a nice link on YouTube for Everyone to listen to.

So that’s as close as were coming for a while, unless your buying the import.
BUY THE IMPORT.

Love, Me.

The Kaki King Signature Ovation Guitar.

with 2 comments

Yes, she gets her own guitar. Because shes that fu*king amazing.

So after years of tapping, hammering and flamenco-style percussion on a guitar she helped design,  Ovation decided to release The Kaki King Ovation Guitar series. Specially built for custom sound adjustment, hand percussion and great acoustics, it’s basically been designed to be a Guitar Nerds dream, and I don’t even mess with guitars like that.
*Looks @ Piano….*
Clocking in at around $3000.00, you might have to save a few paychecks.  But if you want that “Kaki Sound…” well, at least now you have the option of getting it.

Have fun, GeetarGeeks.

Updated – Kaki King: Live At Soho’s in Santa Barbara | January 23, 2009

Yeah. I taught her that.

*Updated to include Doing the Wrong Thing; Fortuna.

Yeah. I missed a whole day of watching MTVJams and VH1Soul to do this, but I owe this to Kaki, Velour Records (Sorry, Brian), Windy (Sorry, Windy), and the People who were at the Soho Santa Barbara Show (You guys are f*ckin AWESOME).
Recorded over a year ago, this is just some of the footage I taped while with Kaki at a small show in Santa Barbara @ Soto (thanks Windy) exactly one year ago. I don’t know why I never uploaded the footage, but at the consistent nagging friends, I finished it today, while doing a massive music “house cleaning” computer style.

So a year later… Please watch and Enjoy.
(And if you don’t know anything about Kaki, don’t worry. I’ll be doing a super blog on her later.)

That should take up about an hour of your life. LoL.
Enjoy.
