Kaki King Nominated for Golden Globe

Velour Music Group is proud to announce that guitarist and songwriter Kaki King has been nominated for a Best Original Score Golden Globe Award for her contributions to Sean Penn's film Into the Wild. King was nominated for this award alongside her collaborators on the film's soundtrack, Eddie Vedder and Michael Brook. This marks the first time King has been nominated for a Golden Globe. Her music also appears in the recently released film August Rush.

On March 4, 2008, King will be releasing her fourth record. Entitled Dreaming of Revenge, the album was produced by Grammy Award-winning musician and producer Malcolm Burn (Emmylou Harris, Peter Gabriel, Daniel Lanois). Aside from Penn, King also has a fan in Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who asked her to duet with him on "Ballad of The Beaconsfield Miners" from the Foos' current album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace.

"To have these kinds of opportunities has been amazing," King says. "Just to know that I can walk into a room, pick up a guitar, and play a piece of music that I've never heard before without days of rehearsal - I feel good knowing that I'm being asked to do such challenging things."

Dreaming of Revenge is King's first record since 2006's Until We Felt Red. Red found King branching out with songs that featured electric and pedal-steel guitar, horns, and, for the first time, vocals. The New York Times said the record sounded like "the abstract, dreamy, and hypnotic end of alternative rock." Revenge picks up that thread, continuing her evolution from acoustic instrumentalist to full-fledged, multi-faceted songwriter. Previously, her whispery, ethereal voice was used as mainly another element in her sonic arsenal. This time around, King put more effort into both her vocals and the lyrics, and, as a result, Dreaming of Revenge is King's most accessible record to date.

Look for King to be touring all through 2008 and beyond. Tour dates to be announced soon.
