Emily King, East Side Story

Emily King - East Side Story'I’m just finding my own culture within myself.'

Committed to finding the common ground between rock and soul, black and white, hip-hop party music and songs of protest the talented young New York-based singer and songwriter Emily King has just completed her debut album for J Records. Entitled East Side Story, the album will arrive in stores later this year, preceded by the first single pick, her self-penned 'Walk in My Shoes.'

The daughter of two internationally renowned jazz singers – one Italian and one African-American – 20-year old Emily was exposed to music since early childhood. The mean and loving streets of the lower eastside (where she still lives) were her nurturing ground, and imparted a world view that can be felt on songs like 'Business Man' (a commentary on heartless capitalists, and the first song she completed) and 'Colorblind,' the last song she wrote for the album. It is also the one that most directly addresses her experience as the child of a mixed-race marriage. 'I think that song really brings it all together,' says Emily. 'It sums up what I’m about, where I’m from, and gives an idea of the passion behind what I’m doing.'

Emily's multicultural background provided her with a wide range of musical influences and these can be easily recognised on East Side Story, from the Beatles and Nas, to Sarah Vaughan and Radiohead, from Michael Jackson to Neil Young. 'Every record that I’ve ever heard has been an influence on me,' she says, 'there are so many things in this world to talk about.'

'I’ve always been an observer, I’ve always really tuned in to people and their stories, their feelings,' adds Emily. 'I’m just finding my own culture within myself. We have a lot of division in our society, but I was never raised like that. I feel like what I’m doing right now is going to bring a lot of people together.'
