Elle King


I was immediately taken by Elle King when I saw her perform at WFUV's CMJ showcase in October of 2014. She's got a powerful, raspy voice that may remind you of Etta James or Janis Joplin. Her songs, which range from rockabilly to soul, can be at turns sexy, sly and sorrowful. You may have already heard "Ex's and Oh's" on WFUV — it's the single from her 2015 full-length debut on RCA Records. (Corny O'Connell)
