Elle King is one of those artists who holds back nothing. When she rolls through a song, like her 2015 smash “Exe’s and Oh’s,” she’s giving 110%. That’s why people walk away from her shows shaking their heads and saying “holy sh!t.” When we had King in three years ago to explain her roots in our DSCVR interview, she told us that her mom says she came out screaming at birth and has always been an up-front person. From her teen days busking in Greenwich Village to tour dates with James Bay and Ed Sheeran, she reached audiences around the world with her mix of rock, country and alt. Her upcoming ‘Shake the Spirit’ album has some unusual inspirations. King says there’s no reason to be afraid of ghosts, and that spirits helped her formulate some of her work. you only need to hear “Good Thing Gone” once to understand the music is tinged with a gospel fervor. See how she describes opening up to something “bigger than ourselves” in our ‘Three Thoughts’ interview.
