Emily King is a songwriter whose releases date back to 2003. She signed to J Records in 2004 and released the debut album, "East Side Story" in 2007. It was nominated for a Grammy for "Best Contemporary R & B Album of the Year" and brought her out on tour with John Legend, Nas, and Alicia Keys, among others. She went independent in 2008 after separating amicably from J Records, and released 2011's EP, "Seven," with long-time friend and collaborator Jeremy Most.
Her newest album, "The Switch," is a bright, vibrant record with a clearly-defined vision. Dripping guitar licks, old school key tones, jazzy vocal subtleties, and steady, grooving rhythms are abundant. She's the daughter of jazz singers Marion Cowings and Kim Kalesti, and the influence of her upbringing on "The Switch" is distinct. She began as a laid-back soloist, but thrives in the set up of a full band.
Watch the band perform tracks from the fresh release on Audiotree Live.

This EP is where my soul is right now. Emily's incredible voice, lyrics and writing make this one of my most treasured collections ever. J Most is such a rad collaborator too! In production and performance. Really love this work! jstarrcreative

To summarize this amazing album. It's the sound so cosmic and ever-sweeping, it's like your looking through the visor of an astronaut and seeing the cosmos sonically. I really wished I had heard this in 2018, because this album really blew my mind.
If there were an artist to make an amazing soundtrack to a Sci Fi Epic, Kadhja Bonet would be the person for it. Jberbicus98

I haven't heard anything as just completely perfectly formed out of the gate--every decision the right one, what to include but more what to exclude--maybe ever. Don't know who Sault is, but they do not sound like they could be anyone who hasn't paid some dues to get this good. Or signed some Satanic contracts. 100% confidence, and it sounds 110% earned.
