Emily King: The Voice


It’s very rare I discover an artist I feel truly captures her audience using her own, genuine material. Emily King signed with J. Records and released a studio album in 2007. I can reasonably assume King parted ways with J. Records due to creative differences and perhaps felt some constraints on her versatile abilities. By no means is East Side Story a poor album, it just feels produced and heavily directed by everyone but King. Listening to King’s current singles such as “Radio” or “Georgia” gives me a heartfelt experience her album lacked. In general, King’s vocals are by no means huge, but more importantly they are captivating, soulful, and humble. Recently I saw her perform in the more intimate room at Rockwood Music Hall. The dimly lit room was packed to the door and I couldn’t help but overhear the hype found in every conversation. Many of them brought their friends out because they were familiar with King and wanted to share their experience, mouthing the words to the three singles available to stream on her website. Hopefully we can expect an album soon. Until then, get hip to Emily King.

  1. She is the physical manifestation of what an authentic songwriter/musical artist aspires to be.
