With the 2008 release of their debut CD “Adoration of The Boogie Bear,” and their 2010 sophomore effort “La Belle Epoque,” California King found their way on to the radar of Indie/Alt tastemakers with performances at both The Northside Festival and Urb Alt Festival. 2014 sees California King poised to release their third album entitled Sankofa. If their earlier efforts were decidedly rock, Sankofa echoes its myriad influences—from Electronica to Caribbean to Funk. The title track is a manifesto of consciousness, the band's way of urging people to look to the past in order to choose the superlative elements and influence the present and the future. Formed by guitarist and vocalist Mike Mills, Brooklyn based trio California King has a style so distinctive that it defies narrow genre labels that are currently en vogue.

Mills is an adept storyteller; painting a detailed lyrical picture as well as delivering mesmerizing emotion-laden vocals and guitar work. Joining Mills in the band are bassist Yohann Potico and drummer Howard Alper. The duo creates a solid foundation with Potico blending in low-end dance and hip-hop styling’s while Alper infuses Rock creativity, power and sophistication. “Se wo were fi na wosan kofa a yenki” - Literally translated: it is not taboo to go back and fetch what you forgot.
