Hailed by Santana as ‘The voice of the street and the band of the future!’ Blue King Brown, 2011 ARIA-nominated artist, is Australia’s premier eight-piece live urban roots crew. Led by the multi-talented, relentless energy of Natalie Pa’apa’a; Powerful vocal and lyrical deliveries meet a dancehall, roots, rock and afro groove mash-up built on an irrepressible percussive foundation.

Their power-packed live show is second to none and, now world renowned, they’ve played across the planet. Once again pushing genre boundaries and breaking new sonic grounds, their new album saw them working alongside the legendary Sly and Robbie, special guests such as Queen Ifrica and Jah Mason, engineers such as James ‘Bonzai’ Caruso (Gwen Stefani, Nas, Damien Marley, Madonna), Colin ‘Bulby’ York from Kingston, Jamaica (Rhianna, Jimmy Cliff, Britney Spears, Madonna, Michael Franti, UB40) and Chris Macro (Scribe, Katchafire).

‘They are the voice of the street and the band of the future!’ – Carlos Santana

‘BKB are one of those unique truth-telling outfits in our business that defy time. Amazing musicians with a powerful message.’ – Serj Tankian (System of a Down).
