Deft and dynamic, King Baby’s sound balances earthy R&B, simmering soul, percolating funk, and a jazz-spiked improvisational bent – with compelling original vocal and instrumental compositions as the fulcrum. Emerging from Atlanta’s fertile, diverse music scene, King Baby assemble a uniquely compelling, invigorating sound from shards of their influences, cemented by their long-standing friendship and fearless willingness to experiment, focused with clear-eyed discipline and formidable musicianship.
Composed of Rick Lollar (guitar and vocals), Mark Raudabaugh (drums), Kevin Scott (bass), and veteran keyboardist Matt Slocum (Jimmy Herring Band, Aquarium Rescue Unit), King Baby harness the energy and zeal of open-ended jams to tight, evocative songcraft, making their music at once provocative and accessible. They are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album, which will be released by the Abstract Logix imprint in the fall of 2016.
