Music Break: Kelis

March 30, 2014 — Leave a comment

The down home Diva Kelis showed up at SXSW 2014 with a new album called Food and a food truck. She is the real deal…

Here is what Rolling Stone had to say…


Ten years after her Neptunes-produced sugar-bomb “Milkshake” and four since her EDM diva turn on Flesh Tone, Kelis has morphed again — this time into an earth mother R&B priestess more about sustenance than confections. Fronting a big band — including a four piece brass/wind section and backing singers — in robes and gold-dust makeup, thick mane of hair to her waist, she segued non-stop through a set of new soul vamps with an Afro-Caribbean undertow and an overall sound recalling 1970s Stevie Wonder. If the songs fell short of that mark, she put them over with spunk and charm, which should keep bringing the boys to the yard.
