"Local Artist Has Sights Success"

*Christopher Ewing is host of 96.3fm WDVD's internet radio show "Radio Cafe" and contributor to local news publications in the Detroit Metropolitan area.

Lori King's song "Lovin'YouLovin'Me" (and her entire album for that matter) is a MUST listen for music lovers. Being signed and produced by 5 time Grammy Award Winning Producer Michael J Powell (Anita Baker, Aretha Franklin, TLC, R-Kelly, Randy Crawford....just to name a few) should give you a good indication that this debut album contains some seriously good music! The album entitled "Lori King-Still In Love" is scheduled for a spring 2011 release. Check it out at www.lorikingmusic.com. - Macomb Daily - Christopher Ewing


"A Diva Night Downtown"

*The stage at Cliff Bell's saturday night was a treat for all those fortunate enough to be in attendance. Some of Detroits most respected Diva's all seemed to have the same destination in mind for a night on the town, and they all ended up onstage for an awe inspiring impromptu performance. The audience was treated to the sounds of highly respected Detroit artists LORI KING, Orthea Barnes, Mildred Scott, Thornetta Davis, and Kimmie Horn. The odds of catching a performance of all this spectacular talent under one roof again? Probably not in MY lifetime! What an incredible night. - Detroit Free Press - Chuck Bennett

Bio

Lori King is a native Detroit performer with an undeniably unique voice. A seasoned performer and songwriter, Lori has had the opportunity to touch audiences all over the world. Not only in major cities in the United States, but across the waters to places like London, England; Gothenburg, Sweden; and Cannes, France.
Her original, soulful, sultry sound captivates an audience in an experience, leading them down a road that links them to the raw passion of her craft. Best described as the perfect blend of soul, pop, and jazz, her critics have used words such as “…Fresh, New, and Real…” to describe her refreshing talents. From breathy nuances to powerhouse tones, the range and power of her voice takes the listener on a dynamic journey allowing for the excitement and intimacy of a song to become an experience that they will not soon forget. With a brand new self titled CD ready to debut, the time has come for the world to know Lori King.
Lori’s voice and songwriting caught the ear of 5 Time Grammy Award Winning Producer Michael J. Powell (Anita Baker, Aretha Franklin, Randy Crawford, TLC, R Kelly…etc) and he immediately signed the artist to his D-Town label. The result is a collaborated creation of timeless music with soulful pop and jazz influences entitled “Lori King-Still In Love”.
2011 finds this artist nominated for 3 Detroit Music Awards of which she is very grateful, and humbled by. Additionally, a pre-release air time opportunity from 96.3fm WDVD’s Radio Café in April of 2010 garnered the #1 spot on the stations & MetroTimes sponsored “Top 10 Most Requested Songs List” for 4 consecutive weeks resulting in on air interviews and additional airplay opportunities. As a past participant at the MIDEM Music Festival in Caanes, France, her material was once again well received and represented for licensing in early 2010. These are only a few highlights that are an indication of what’s to come from this dynamic artist in the very near future this year.
Now completed and ready for release, many industry insiders have given their stamp of approval on this project with negotiations for Universal Records to handle distribution. Lori is extremely excited to deliver her music and talents to larger audiences around the U.S. and abroad once again.
As one intrigued fan put it, “…Lori King has a very interesting sound that draws you in.” Lori King – Still In Love, a Michael J. Powell production, is ready for release to touch listeners across the globe and share the experience of life and love.
