Hailed by Santana as “The voice of the street and the band of the future!” The 8 to 11 piece powerhouse band that is BLUE KING BROWN bring their cross generational grooves and socially conscious sound.
The infectious energy and passion from lead singer, guitarist and percussionist Natalie Pa’apa’a is a driving musical force that has led BKB through an impressive touring history playing major festivals and venues in Australia through to USA, CANADA, JAPAN and EUROPE. BKB continue to deliver their now world renowned power packed live show featuring their home-grown, universally spoken language, delivered as hard hitting Urban Roots music..
They have also shared the global stage opening for National and International greats such as Santana, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Damien ‘Jr gong’ Marley, The John Butler Trio, The Cat Empire, Silverchair, Powderfinger to name a few.
With recent recording trips to Kingston Jamaica and New York now under their belt, once again pushing genre boundaries, their latest releases are a testament to the rise of Blue King Brown – one of Australia’s greatest acts.
