On Jan. 23, when Georgia Anne Muldrow stepped on stage at the Dakota Live Music Lounge with partner in life and sound Dudley Perkins, you could feel the fonk bouncing off the walls. Muldrow, the first female artist to be signed by Stones Throw, previewed songs from her latest self-produced release, Kings Ballad. The new mother is a sonic phenom: She produces, writes, plays, sings and raps. Reminiscent of Badu coupled with Perkins’ flashes of ODB, you can understand why this release bubbles with the soul of cultural expression and the spirit of a warrior.
