Emily King started out as a mainstream artist with her first record deal with J Records in 2004. To her advantage, the label dropped her after 3 years due to not understanding her artistry and musical direction. We are extremely lucky that happened because since then she has showcased her distinctive artistry and talent through the avenue of independent recording.
With her latest album "The Switch", King takes us on a relatable journey that engulfs you with an array of emotions. From songs that introduce us to her definition of a good friend to others that explain how distance from a lover can be good for the heart. If you are not familiar with King then start by listening to her debut album, "East Side Story", to better equip your listening ears with the growing sound her music has currently transpired to. Some of the most notable songs on the album that you should especially listen to include the title track 'The Switch', 'Distance' and 'Out of The Clouds'. Nonetheless, the entire album is worthy of being played the entire way through with no skips.
