Elle King to perform radio.com showcase in NYC

The singer has received rave responses from critics

Elle King, a talented recording artist/songwriter currently in the studio working on her debut album for RCA Records, will be performing in New York City during CMJ on October 18th at 8 pm ET at the Radio.com event at Rockwood Music Hall.

An extraordinary musician, King possesses an incredible songwriting flare and an arresting voice in a category all her own – she also plays a mean banjo and guitar. Born in Ohio and raised in Brooklyn, her musical style and songwriting themes are a blend of old soul, blues, and rock ‘n’ roll and her personal style is Bushwick, Brooklyn meets mid-Western charm.

She has toured with Of Monsters and Men, Michael Kiwanuka, and Ed Sheeran and many others. With the release of her well-received four track The Elle King EP, King received a rave response – the lead single “Playing for Keeps” was featured as the theme song for Mob Wives Chicago, chosen for the national TV ad campaign for Mad Men, and King made her television network debut on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Critics have been praising King. Esquire declared her “an artist to watch,” Glamour raved “Elle’s brand of groove is dirty, bluesy, and soulful…she croons like an old soul,” Entertainment Weekly described her sound in their “Must List” as “dangerously catchy” and Perez Hilton also praised “We were blown away by her voice!…The singer packs a real emotional punch and brings a rawness to her songs. She is what makes them special!” Teen Vogue describes Elle as “Blond and boisterous, music’s newest hot chick… (Her EP is)…An authentic and deeply personal arsenal of songs about heartache, disillusionment, and kicking and some serious butt that walk an emotional line with a been-there-done-that swagger….Such awareness makes this tough girl a role model.”
