King began to write her own music in the seventh grade. She had the opportunity to attend a summer program at Berklee College of Music and studied audio production and performance at Mesa Community College. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, King enjoys writing music that is positive and uplifting. She’s said that other artists who have inspired her are Stevie Wonder, Fiona Apple and Tori Amos. Her own songs are smart and surprising, able to marry a variety of different sounds and genres in a way that is unique.
Having been in the Phoenix music scene for a while, King has come to be a popular figure in the area. According to David Hilker, the CEO of Fervor Records, “Musically, she is a triple threat: an excellent pianist, exceptional vocalist and extraordinary songwriter. She commands a deep understanding of how to emote via all three.”
King has become a sought after performer for venues and weddings across the country. Not only do people love her music and voice, but her friendly personality makes a statement as well. King is also great at providing her own twist on classic songs and has covered tunes by James Taylor, The Beatles, Chicago and Feist, among others.
Having a purpose in her music is important to King. She said that she wants it to be a source of inspiration, and she wants to inspire others to be happy. For King, music is what she believes she’s meant to do.
