Elle King is an anti-folk artist.
Born in Ohio and raised in Brooklyn by her mother (after separating from her father, comedian Rob Schneider), she retains her roots in a style that blends those two worlds of both grit and mid-western charm. She often draws comparisons to Billie Holiday, Duffy, Regina Spektor and Adele. Miss King cites old blues, rock n' roll, and greats like Johnny Cash as her biggest influences.
Featured in an issue of Love magazine and February's V Magazine as well as creating buzz amongst music bloggers everywhere.
She was nominated for two Grammy awards in 2016 – Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for her hit debut single “Ex’s & Oh’s.” Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
