Elle King

Elle King is a 22-year-old indie acoustic folk singer who carries the soul of an 85-year-old man. That may seem like an odd statement to make of this bleach blonde blued eyed leather-jacket wearing badass type, but just one listen to her song "No One Can Save You" and you will fully understand the metaphor. King's lyrics scream an honesty that is only championed by her scratchy yet feminine voice. Every song I've heard by this girl seems uncomfortably personable, captivating my soul in the same way performing them seems to captivate her own.


King's song "Good to Be A Man" casts a dim light on King's background, growing up as a rebellious teen in New York City, her relationship with her comedian/actor father, and the lessons she learned along the way.
