Emily King

It's been said: if you want to change your mind state, change your scenery first. For Emily King, the pop-soul singer from New York City who spent her first three decades living on the same downtown block, that notion was always easier said than done.

A proud New Yorker, she loved her home, her family, her friends, and her life there. But a year ago, when she finally resolved to challenge herself by moving out of her comfort zone, positive changes started taking shape immediately. In Upstate New York, the fresh air and fresh mentality gave her the proper space and perspective to create what would become the album of her career. Its name: Scenery.
 
Emily is a Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter. Her critically acclaimed EP Seven was released in 2011 and has since become a favorite amongst music fans and critics alike. Originally signed to J Records/Sony Music by Clive Davis, Emily’s debut album East Side Story received a Grammy Nomination for a Best Contemporary R&B Album of the year.
In June, 2015, King released The Switch via her own label Making Music Records to high praise from fellow songwriters Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith, Sara Bareilles, and Meghan Trainor. Emily celebrates her roots, pop, soul, and indie influences by carefully crafting compositions that serve as the perfect vehicle for her polished, lush vocals.
