MUSIC: KING – The Story
by Maya Aaliya
Let’s start with the name. When three young women choose ‘King’ as their moniker, the assertive woman subtext is immediately understood. What the name may not suggest is the sweet texture of harmonies and soothing jazz influence KING has quickly become known for. Anita Bias, and twin sisters Paris and Amber Strother reign as the acclaimed newcomers with old souls. Leaving the earnest songwriting and beautifully melodious singing to fan favorites like “Hey” and “In the Meantime,” their ethereal sound does not at all mean that the trio should be taken lightly. From the release of The Story EP, KING from their SoundCloud page to playing this year’s Essence Fest, KING is proving a dominate force. All Hail!
