Special Occasion

By: Laurie Gallardo

In addition to coming from a musical family, growing up in NYC meant that Emily King was surrounded by a number of influences that shaped the artist she is today, from jazz to R&B to hip-hop. King made her official debut with the album East Side Story in 2007, and since then, the Grammy-nominated songwriter has captivated audiences with a rich musical tapestry that includes soul and multi-faceted pop. This month, King released her first album in four years, Special Occasion, a revelatory exploration of the infinite forms that heartbreak can take on, and of the long-winding journey toward understanding oneself.

King’s current tour brings her back to Austin for a performance tonight, Tuesday May 23, at Antone’s, with special guest Joseph Solomon opening the show. Doors at 7 p.m.
