The Lawrence songwriter is versatile enough to pull it off. She channels her inner Lisa Loeb to offer emotionally comforting songs while drawing out her own narrative. She played a solo set at the Replay Wednesday night, but more recently she played with a full band at her EP release show (give the EP a listen below). She unloaded loads of new songs while performing solo, confidently, and alone.
King is a proper songwriter that demonstrates a delicate maturity so many listeners yearn for. We’d recommend taking the night off, locking yourself in your room, lighting some candles, and enjoying a bra-free evening as you wrap herself in her tranquil and encouraging songs. Her vocal range and beautiful falsettos are impressive– and they were demonstrated in a well-received Frank Ocean cover she pulled out towards the end of the set (video below).
We see King as a serious musician (she dabbles in other acts around town) who will most likely build up a strong backing band as she continues with her craft. She would pair well with Jessica Paige (of Kansas City) and La Guerre.
