Kaki King Quotes
I write almost every single part of my songs, even the actual drum parts sometimes, whether they be simple or layered with many different instruments.
You get to a point where the kind of beautiful chaos can't really fuel your creative existence any longer because it's not stable, however amazing and exciting it may be.
I am quite short, but that never comes across when I'm onstage in front of people. When I get offstage and greet an audience afterwards, their first reaction is to comment on my height because it seems like a very drastic difference.
Having been on tour in countries that are extremely eco-friendly, we automatically end up doing the things that normal people do in other countries.
I definitely associate music with color. For example, my first record has a red cover but it is totally green and blue to me.
Opening acts are hard, really hard. There's more politics involved than music, sometimes.
We don't really have a place in the universe, as far as on a timeline. But nothing else does, either. Therefore every moment really is the most important moment that's ever happened, including this moment right now.
I get why people want to come see me play guitar, but I still don't understand why people want to interview me.
I try not to punish the audience by making them listen to too much acoustic guitar.
Tunings are wonderfully inspiring, and it helps you to write music. If I'm stuck, you know, I change the tuning.
I've followed the lives of great musicians and have learned that you don't have to always write in pain. You have all of your past experiences, feelings, and thoughts that you can turn on when you need them and turn off when you don't.
I don't remember a time that I didn't know how to play the guitar.
There are a lot of places that I know extremely well. Like, if I were to visit Sydney, Australia, I'd feel very comfortable there. I'm very comfortable in many, many cities.
I had to be reminded that the guitar is infinite. It never stops teaching you, it never stops being difficult; there's an unlimited amount of things to learn, and you'll never master it.
I have to say, I do love the Ovation guitars. If I had one guitar to play, it would be that one, and it's got nothing to do with having my name on it. I absolutely rely on it.
I see people who work on their look and they work on their poster and their website and you know, the music will speak for itself no matter what. So if you put maybe like 95% of your energy on music and 5% on playing out and telling people about it. That's kind of a good equation.
The one thing I've always done, because I like the sound of my guitar from where I sit - meaning not in front of it - so what I do is, I put microphones around my ears. I have them around my head, too. I don't know if it's a superstitious thing, but it's actually how I recorded my first album.
