The best yet from underground soul force Georgia Anne Muldrow – an artist who has now put out more exceptional music in a handful of years as both artist and producer than many do in a career these days! Kings Ballad is her full length debut for Ubiquity, a record that's as boundlessly creative as anything she's done to date, but with a cohesive sense of soul that could get her over in the mainstream if the mainstream has its ears open! In some ways the record is a consolidation of her styles – from 70s spiritual soul strains, to trunk-rattling hip hop funk, to cosmic jazzy soundscapes, but the songs are really strong and focused on this record without sacrificing the spacey atmosphere. We keep thinking she's gonna peak, but she keeps on raising the bar! Titles include "Indeed", "Doobie Down", "Simple Advice", "Kings Ballad", "RIP", "Thrones", "Summers Love", "Shang-A-Lang", "The Ohh Wee Show", "Chocolate Reign", "Baby Dee", "Live", "Morena Del Ray" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
