King’s set received rave reviews with The Quad City Times proclaiming, “Ms. King gave a blazing, typically fearless 40-minute set to open…Her raspy, searing, and soaring wail poured out her heart. What a tremendous, tumultuous set of pipes she’s got” and The Lantern describing her performance as “…[perfect]…her deep and growling vocals and unpolished stage presence were reminiscent of Janis Joplin…watching King be so openly grateful…and playing this size of venue…was infectious.”

Elle King has taken the world by storm with the release of her Gold-certified debut album LOVE STUFF last year. Her hit single “Ex’s & Oh’s” was nominated for 2 Grammys and 2 Billboard Music Awards, was certified double platinum, and she made chart history, becoming the second female artist in 18 years to reach #1 at Alternative Radio, following Lorde’s #1 with “Royals” in 2013.  Her single also claimed the #1 spot on the AAA Chart, #1 at Hot AC, and #1 spot on the Billboard “Hot Rock Songs” with “Ex’s & Oh’s, becoming the 4th female led act/artist to top this chart in its 6 year history.

She has received much critical acclaim — Jon Pareles of The New York Times described her as “a sassy, hard-drinking, love-’em-and-leave-’em hellion with bad tattoos and a broad pedigree across rock, pop and country. She has Adele’s determination and Joan Jett’s stomp, Brenda Lee’s high-voiced bite and some AC/DC shriek.”  Elle has been featured by The Wall Street Journal, Teen Vogue, People Magazine, USA Today, and many more.
