PERFORMING HER SINGLE ?EX?S & OH?S? ON THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON ON FRIDAY, APRIL 3RD

DEBUT ALBUM ?LOVE STUFF? OUT NOW!?

?Her debut ?Love Stuff? taps into the vein of greasily old-school rock?n?roll while also offering rootsy interludes and quiet, rueful love songs. But the unifying element is Ms. King?s voice, a powerful instrument that reflects the influence of Aretha Franklin and rockabilly pioneer Wanda Jackson.? ? Wall Street Journal

?Listening to this album will empower you to be a bad ass with a soft side? ? Nylon ?Blond and boisterous, music’s newest hot chick? ? Teen Vogue
