Catch 'FUV Live at CMJ' sets from Elle King and more in the FUV Vault.

Elle King has a voice that cannot be ignored. It’s raspy, it’s sexy, it’s confident... It’s a VOICE, which feels like it requires all caps. Elle is also charming, funny, warm and engaging, and as she proved at our FUV Live at CMJ showcase, she is a talent to be reckoned with.

The obvious strength of a four-song EP released two years ago landed her opening slots on major tours, and her television debut on the Late Show With David Letterman, and on the Rockwood Music Hall stage, we got a live preview of songs from her full-length debut, which is due out early next year on RCA Records.

King says that music is what she has wanted to do her whole life, and her dream (come true) is to have audiences singing along. It was clear from this performance that Elle King is doing what she was born to do, and is well on her way to much bigger stages with much bigger audiences singing her songs.
