Emily King is a GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter born and raised in Manhattan's Lower East Side. King recently released the critically-acclaimed EP 'The Switch,' touring and playing live with the likes of Maroon 5, John Legend, Emeli Sandé, Alicia Keys, Aloe Blacc, Sara Bareilles and countless others along the way. King celebrates her roots, pop, soul, and indie influences by carefully grafting compositions that serve as the perfect vehicle for her polished, lush vocals.
"With each song and bellow of her silky smooth voice, you can hear a range of tones from soul to jazz to old school R&B... Grammy-nominated vocalist and songwriter Emily King is making waves in the music industry with her unique sound." - Nylon Magazine
"['Sleepwalker'] is my holiday song & album this year!! Unreal talent. In complete awe of this girl. Thank you for the music." - Sam Smith
"['The Switch' is] a tasteful collection of 11 songs that showcase King's distinctive voice." - Wall Street Journal
After parting ways with her label in 2008, King continues her work independently. Her follow-up EP Seven was released in July, 2011 and she is currently touring in support of it. In October she accepted an invitation from Maroon 5 to be the opening act on their European/Scandinavian tour in late 2011.
King's carefully crafted compositions are the perfect vehicle for her polished, lush vocals that harbor both an innocence and honesty. A gentle mix of soul, folk and rock influences, King's music emotes the kind of straight to the point storytelling that's reminiscent of singer/songwriters of the 1970's.
