Ghost Lit Kingdom rocks LA and joins us Friday

glk_300_sq_group.jpgGhost Lit Kingdom’s debut EP leads with the song “You Don’t Know Me” but if you don’t, you soon will.  The young band has stormed through the huge LA music scene with gigs at the cream of  the City of Angeles’ venues - the Troubadour, the Viper Room, the Mint and the Hotel Café with its new out-of-the- blue genre of pop-jazz-folk-hip hop anthemic rock.  The lead dual vocals of Ela Kitapci and Taylor Morrow blend into a haunting, arena-filling harmony that tops up a musical hypodermic with close-to-the bone lyrics and slides them into your ears and your heart  There is nothing like it.

 Started in 2010 as an acoustic folk band fronted by the wide-ranging, golden voiced Kitapci,  GLK took flight when she met and befriended Taylor and the two began writing songs together.  They realized they needed a band to create the sounds that were coming out of their heads and in 2014 they recruited Michael Sevilla to assist on guitar, Andrew Furze on bass and Jason Rodriguez on drums – creating  Ghost Lit Kingdom. Within 6 months they  were in the studio and three months later released their first hit single, “You Don’t Know Me”. Meanwhile, they were playing larger and larger venues as the word spread – a new sound was in town and it was phenomenal.

I reviewed their debut EP two weeks ago and was blown away.  It is not very often that a band can create something totally new, but they have done it.  I am so looking forward to talking with Ela and Taylor this Friday.
