About the Artist:

Best described as “neo soul”, the Australian band KINGS and ASSOCIATES’ live show is both powerful and poignant. Awarded three Australian Blues Music Awards on the back of their second album TALES of a RICH GIRL, which was produced by 7-time Grammy winner Jim Scott. The band features a vocal powerhouse led by principal songwriter Angii Portolesi, singing her ‘life stories’ with honesty and vulnerability. Adding to the vocal lineup is guitarist Benny Cunnigham, whose soulful voice has been compared to the great crossover artist Johnny Guitar Watson. The vocal trifecta is completed by multi- instrumentalist and keyboardist Greg Jones. Rounding out this exceptional lineup is bassist and songwriter Stephen Portolesi, guitar virtuoso Matt Williams who is described as “the most under-rated guitarist in music today”, the punchy and powerful drummer, Kelvin Sugars, and keyboardist Paul White. This seven-piece lineup delivers the best of Neo-Soul music with a Blues twist in the industry today.

After two long years of Covid lock down in their home state of South Australia, Kings and Associates returned to the U.S. for their third American Tour in the summer of 2023, playing their way across the Heartland with performances at Summerfest in Milwaukee, Parkway Bank Park in Chicago, and multiple Levitt venues. With each performance, the band seemed to reach new heights and won the hearts and minds of music lovers at each stop along the way. Post tour, the band signed with the Toronto based AMG Corporation and a subsequent distribution deal with Sony Music.

2024 will be a big year for KINGS as they prepare to record and release their fourth studio album on Big Wing Records, and plans are in the works for multiple U.S. Tours.
