Twins Paris and Amber Strother and musical sister Anita Bias are KING.

In 2011 KING independently released their first EP to much acclaim; title track "The Story", "Supernatural", and "Hey" make up the 3-piece introduction to their carefully crafted dream-soul sound. Hours after the release, their EP had traveled far to music lovers and tastemakers alike, making new fans of many.

KING’s eclectic sound is relatable yet not simply defined. Though they play with the boundaries of their many influences, throughout each song is the common thread of a certain soulful authenticity. The smooth vibe, intricate production, and harmonic style of their music evolved beautifully in their home studio, a product solely of the three women and a result of their Minneapolis and Los Angeles roots.

Paris produces KING’s songs, while Amber and Anita are the primary singers. The three work together on songwriting and arrangements to create their unique sound, garnering such accolades as Pitchfork's Best New Track, NPR's Song of the Day and 10 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing, Billboard's 10 Best R&B Songs of 2014, The Guardian's New Band of the Day and Best Albums of 2013, Metro UK's Singles of the Week, Vulture's 8 Best New Songs of the Week, Glamour Magazine's 2013 Free Holiday Music Campaign, and the 55th GRAMMY Award for 'Move Love', their collaboration with Robert Glasper on his Best R&B Album 'Black Radio'. KING have completed their long-awaited debut album and are excited to invite listeners further into their sonic kingdom; listen to their conversation on NPR's All Things Considered about their music-making process for the upcoming record, scheduled to be released February 5, 2016 on their independent label, KING Creative.
