TK Wonder
About Me
TK Wonder, has the notable skill for songwriting and "slamming" lyrics in a very unique hip hop/spoken word fashion that creates a new genre with a significant electro punch. Her singing is as unique as her vibrant presence on stage and her outstanding live performance. TK first became interested in stringing syllables together when she performed spoken-word poetry at the since-demolished downtown venue Wetlands.

HER 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. 

TK HAS performed at various venues such as Hiro Ballroom, Studio B, Nublu, Joe's Pub, Santos Party House, Hunter College, Le Poisson Rouge, Apollo Theater, the legendary Lyricist Lounge show, 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 Nas, Erykah Badu (Giantstep’s WMC), Raphael Saadiq (Giantstep’s NYC Summerstage) Duffy, Talib Kweli and J*Davey. SHE HAS been featured in magazines such as Giant, Trace, Washington Post, a Japanese publication named Luire as well as Village Voice, Time Out-New York and Jazz Times for her work with Ben Perowsky's Moodswing Orchestra. Besides her own band TK WonderLand she performs with Moodswing Orchestra which consists of critically acclaimed drummer/composer Ben Perowsky and grammy award winning producer/guitarist Danny Blume. She also works with critically acclaimed artist Kiril Djzakovski. She has performed with Kiril in a few international electronica festivals such as VIP, Exit Fest, Belgrade Beer Fest and Tuborg Greenfest in Europe with audiences ranging from 50,000 to 125,000. During these festivals TK shared the same billing alongside N.E.R.D., The Prodigy, The Hives, Afrika Bambaataa, Sex Pistols and Gossip to name a few. She is currently a featured artist on Giantstep.

PRESS:

“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

“Combining powerful delivery and provoking lyrics, TK Wonder is electric" – Trace magazine, New York

“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

“Drummer Perowsky is another recognizable face on the downtown jazz scene and his set did not disappoint. The rapper TK Wonder meshed well with the percussionist’s snappy, hip-hop-inspired grooves. When she was done spitting, guitarist Adam Rogers took over, and the excellent, Bill Frisell–style tone he got from his Telecaster offered something new for the veteran player.” – Time Out, NY

“It's not only Revive that's exploring this fertile ground. Drummer Ben Perowsky, leader of avant-garde group Moodswing Orchestra, features hip-hop freestyler TK Wonder on his front line; a June 25 show will toast adventurous East Village club Nublu's eighth anniversary. ["The way she flows, it's like a horn player," Perowsky says of Wonder. "If there is any jazz going on in hip-hop, I feel like it's coming from the rappers more so than from the beats. The improv aspect of it is coming from the rhymes, and that's where the jazz is."] – Village Voice, NY

"There were fusions of jazz elements and contemporary music that felt familiar. A compact version of drummer Ben Perowsky’s Moodswing Orchestra worked urging, sprawling grooves despite some technical distractions, receiving a boost whenever the guest MC, TK Wonder, offered her rapid-fire rhymes." - Jazz Times

“TK Wonder is a enormously talented rapper and her lyrics were very naturally added to the remixes on this “Mars” mixtape. Her rapid-fire rhymes allow for more lyrics per second which is probably why it seemed so natural for her raps to be in these tracks. Definitely worth checking out this remix even if it is to embrace your inner-emo for the New Moon soundtrack tune from Thom Yorke. I think if people search out this mixtape for the “Hearing Damage” remix, they’ll also discover a wonderfully gifted talent in TK Wonder. Can’t wait to see what’s next from her!” – Couchsessions.com
