A unique and distinctive artist, singer/songwriter Elle King blends pop, blues, rock and roll, and country into a sound that’s all her own.
In 2015, King released her debut album, Love Stuff, a mix of rock and roll, blues and country, with a twinge of pop. The gold-certified album featured the breakthrough single, “Ex’s & Oh’s,” which earned King two Grammy nominations and was certified double platinum. The track hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs Chart, and topped the AAA, Hot AC, and Alternative Radio charts, leading King to become the second female artist in 18 years to reach #1 at the latter format.
The Ohio-born, New York-raised artist was also featured on Dierks Bentley’s Grammy-nominated, #1 Country Airplay hit, “Different for Girls.”
King released her follow-up album, Shake the Spirit, in October 2018. The album, which explores a difficult period in King’s life, features the songs “Baby Outlaw,” “Shame,” “Naturally Pretty Girls” and “Good Thing Gone.”
King decided she wanted to be a singer and musician after hearing the all-girl pop-punk band the Donnas when she was 9 years old in Ohio. By 13, she was playing guitar and later learned to play banjo. King began street busking and gigging around New York at age 16, then moved to Philadelphia to attend the University of Arts, where she majored in painting and film.
