TK Wonder sits somewhere between M.I.A. and Flying Lotus, with Taylor Mcferrin contributing a special brand of spaceship electro beats. Rhymewise, TK’s ability to spit at aggressive tempos is rivaled by few of her contemporaries, and she’s got that killer combination of looks and skills that the game is sorely missing” – Washington Post.
"This week is all about revelations. Firstly, TK Wonder is the greatest rapper alive. She rocked the When Boy Meets Girl IV show at Southpaw which featured acts like Sarah White who pumped out sweet, punky soul that is a pain to classify but easy to shimmy to. With her psychedelic leggings and a feather in her hair, TK looked like Gem playing a game of Cowboys and Indians. But then she spits over Taylor McFerrin's mouth-made beats with the rapid fire diction of Busta Rhymes and the mellow, gravelly tone of Digable Planets' Ladybug Mecca. And the random, robotic dance breaks? She had me at the first hip-thrust." - Giantstep.net, Giantstep Resident: Mawuse Ziegbe GAEA@EXIT 2008
"Combining powerful delivery and provoking lyrics, TK Wonder is electric" – Trace magazine, New York. GAEA summer 2008
"Last but not least in our list of Bounce-Worthy femcees is TK Wonder. According to WaPo, her style rests somewhere between "M.I.A. and Flying Lotus." It's an imaginary pedigree that would get anyone to listen, but it's not that simple. And it's her sheer lack of simplicity that will keep you listening a little longer. TK's catchy chants are at once provocative and runway-ready, due to Taylor McFerrin's frenetic beats. If her lyrics are empowering, that's only because she injects them with a little tough love. Check the cautionary "Celebrity" from McFerrin's Broken Vibes EP and her own "Nightwalker." But listen carefully, because she has a penchant for rapping at lightspeed if the track demands it. She recently performed during the DC's Can A Sista Rock A Mic? festival and by all accounts she owned the evening." - Soulbounce.com
GAEA @ BELGRADE BEER FEST MUSIC BIO: TK WONDER'S notable skill for writing and "slamming" lyrics in a very unique hip hop/spoken word fashion seems to create a new genre with a significant electro punch. Her singing is as unique as her vibrant presence on stage and her outstanding live performance. Raised on a nourishing diet of Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson in Baltimore, TK first became interested in stringing syllables together when she performed spoken-word poetry at the since-demolished downtown venue Wetlands. Backed by Questlove on the drums and Scott Storch on the keys, TK Wonder polished her craft at the legendary Sunday night Black Lily events, always drawing raves for her work. She would go on to perform at Def Jam showcases, Nuyorican Poet's Café and Nell's. TK's evolution from poetry to rapping was seamless, as the combination of her stage presence and sharply-honed writing skills merged to create a unique style of telling stories and addressing social issues with intricately-intertwined and multiple-syllable rhymes. She has performed at various venues such as Hiro Ballroom, Studio B, Nublu, Joe's Pub, Hunter College, Apollo Theater, Delano Hotel in Miami, The Viper Room in LA and the Jazz Cafe in London to name a few. TK Wonder has opened for artists such as Erykah Badu, Duffy, Talib Kweli and J*Davey with Taylor Mcferrin who she is currently working with on an EP called Electric Baby. TK Wonder is also part of a collective force called GAEA with Duke Borjadziev and they are currently working on an album called Fantasy World. This duo has opened for artist Kiril Dzajkovski in a few international electronica festivals such as VIP, Exit Fest, Belgrade Beer Fest and Tuborg Greenfest in Europe alongside the likes of N.E.R.D., The Prodigy, The Hives, Afrika Bambaataa, Sex Pistols and Gossip to name a few.
