Tales Of A Rich Girl is available on cd from and the bands’ FB page along with i Tunes, Amazon and most other on line outlets.In 2018 Kings & Associates will be performing a string of shows throughout Australia to support their new album including festivals such as WOMADelaide, Blenheim Fest, Echuca Winter Blues, the Fringe, and will embark on their first shows in New Zealand in early March.chatiw In some chat rooms, you can even play games like scrabble and cricket, although you can go on speaking to people at an identical time.There are many online games, and a lot more are emerging daily.So it was back to the States again to mix the album in Music City…time the band used the trip to perform live including shows at the legendary Bourbon St Blues Club in Printers Lane Nashville, and a quick fire semifinal appearance at the IBC in Memphis….between tracking in LA with Jim Scott, and mixing in Nashville with Vance Powell the guys had travelled over 34,000 miles in 8 months to finish their album.‘Unlike Red Dress where we felt we were finding our feet stylistically, Tales is a lot closer to our heart’ says lyricist and vocalist Angie Portolesi.‘Jim is the most down to earth guy we've met, and considering his massive list of successful recordings I have to say it was totally refreshing.He knew how to create the perfect environment to get the best out of you both in performance and creativity…still having time to eat, hang and chat….’ Portolesi says, ‘at times Kelv [Sugars] and I had to pinch ourselves to remind us of where we were and who we were working with, this guy had worked with bands and artists who have sold millions of albums and influenced us personally, to have the opportunity to work with him and have him speak into our songs was humbling to say the least’.
K I N G S & A S S O C I A T E S are excited to announce the follow up to their debut album Red Dress….. This marks over 2 years of writing, touring and recording with 10 new original tracks on what is expected to be a land mark release…going by the reputation of those who helped make this album a reality it's no wonder expectation is high.
‘We're not about bashing people on the head with a social message or pointing the finger’ comments Angie, ‘our time in Memphis and specifically our visit to the site of the shooting of Martin Luther King reaffirmed in us how slavery has been with us for generations and the impact it's had on humanity is something we need to continue to address.
It's not about saying “there are the bad guys”, but for us it's about saying what in my life allows the repressed of this world to remain enslaved’.
Producing and performing music is not the sole focus or motivation for Kings & Associates.
In conjunction with their new album the band continues their relationship with global NGO World Vision.
