GRAMMY nominated songwriter Emily King independently released her sophomore album The Switch this past Friday June 26th via her own label Making Music Records.
Born in New York City, Emily grew up surrounded by music and by her teens, she had blossomed into one of the cities finest songwriters regularly showcasing her eclectic and carefully crafted songs unified by a soulful voice at famous stops like CBGB'S and The Bitter End. Since then, Emily has toured the world with John Legend, Alicia Keys, Nas, Maroon 5 and Sara Bareilles.
"One of the best songwriters around at the moment." - BBC's Radio 1
Okay Player applauds Emily's "resurgent, 60's soul-channeling" and praises new song The Animals for its "delicate, sky high vox ... mishmash of electronic drum sounds" and "its heavenly breaking point, opening up with a wave of strings and submerged, melodic, Prince-like guitar licks to cap things off."
"A voice that can turn heads anywhere ... The Animals is a clear departure from King's original sound, in the best way possible." - Nylon Magazine
