Introducing…Elle King

Introducing...Elle KingWe received a short e-mail from Steven at Big Hassle suggesting we check out a new artist by the name of Elle King.

We’re glad we did.

Although background info is pretty scarce we did discover she was born in Ohio and raised in Brooklyn by her mother. She retains her roots in a style that blends those two worlds of both grit and mid-western charm. Apparently she often draws comparisons to Billie Holiday, Regina Spektor and similar, and we would certainly add a couple of MM faves Jessica Lea Mayfield and Caitlin Rose to the list too. She cites old blues, rock n’ roll, and greats like Johnny Cash as her biggest influences.

Watch No One Can Save You. Listen to Broken Vow. Download Good To Be A Man – all outstanding tracks and you can see exactly what we mean. Elle King is certainly someone to keep an eye and an ear out for – authentic, compelling and wonderful.
