Recording Artist

Emily King was a star in the making long before she signed a recording
contract. The product of New York’s eclectic East Village and the
daughter of musicians, King’s natural gift of illuminating lives
through song is embodied in her debut album, Eastside Story.


“I think subconsciously we soak in a lot of our environment,” explains
King. “I was kind of just surrounded with all of these different
cultures, languages, and vibes so I would say that all of that falls
into my music. It just comes out naturally from the soul.”

The album, which was entirely produced by her mentor and acclaimed
Hitmen producer Chucky Thompson, has been described by King as music
that can speak to everybody. King, who comes from a biracial background
and who also writes her own music as well as plays the guitar, was
first introduced to Thompson three years ago. This meeting later led to
her signing with Clive Davis’ J Records.


“I think that when you first sign, they want you to experiment with a
lot of different people,” King adds. “But I just felt like in my gut
that it wasn’t all the way right. I’m a songwriter, and I felt like I
had to be me as opposed to following a formula. Chucky was really
adamant about that too, so it was great to have that partnership with
someone like that.” – jason thompson
