No One Does It Like Kaki

Kaki King (pronounced "khaki") is a master of the guitar. With an untouchably unique style, Kaki slaps, taps, and beats on her guitar like it's nobody's business. Since 2003, she's released four full-length albums, full of intricate guitar compositions that she perfected during her time as a performer in the New York City subway system. In 2006, she was named a "Guitar God" by Rolling Stone, the first female to ever earn that honor. She's occasionally worked with the Foo Fighters, and was featured on the song "The Ballad of Beaconsfield" from their album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace. To quote Dave Grohl, frontman of the Foo Fighters: "There are some guitar players that are good, and there are some guitar players that are really fucking good. And then there's Kaki King."
