Gizelle Smith is proud to take you on a journey across new musical terrain with her unique, expansive cover of Kate Bush's 'King of The Mountain'. This is the first single released off her third upcoming album 'Revealing', due for release early summer.
'The Golden Girl of Funk' has had many a journalist perplexed by her responses to questions regarding her musical influences: Joni Mitchell, Hendrix and Zappa have all featured highly in her list but none higher than her queen, Kate. A somewhat eclectic mix, all connected by their freedom of expression and seeming lack of desire to be strictly categorised in any one genre...
"In hindsight, King of the Mountain was the unwitting green-lit precursor for me to explore newly realised artistic freedom but contrary to the circumstances, I kept the recording in the vein of the rest of the album by way of not approaching it from an emotional point of view. I wanted to make sure the original sentiment was preserved". Gizelle Smith
And that, she does. Whilst experimenting with a new, cool, story-telling-type vocal performance, backed by a laid-back soundscape, punctuated with psychedelic and cinematic elements, firmly setting the tone for an album which proves she's free from musical expectations, leading her funk soul followers across new, exciting and inspired Gizelle Smith landscapes.
