Top 10 best Elle King songs

11 Jul

Tanner Elle Schneider, aka Elle King, was born on July 3, 1989 in Los Angeles, California to comedian Rob Schneider and model London King. Not long after her birth her parents divorced and she was raised by her mother and 2nd husband Justin Tesa. By the age of 9-years-old she knew that she wanted to be a musician after listening to a record of the all-girl band the Donnas. The following year she had her first acting experience when she had a small part in dads’ movie “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo”. By the age of 13-years-old she was learning to play both guitar and banjo by studying the techniques of some of the biggest artist in rock, blues, and country music. Around the same time she started going to Buck’s Rock Camp in Philadelphia where she would hone her craft, star in musicals, and meet other musicians.

In 2011 Elle King signed her first recording contract with RCA. In March of the following year she recorded her first single and was on her way as a singer/songwriter. Since that time her career has been on the fast track to stardom with several movie and television soundtracks on her resume. This year she will be one of the artist featured on the soundtrack of the reboot of the movie “Ghostbusters”.

  1. Where the Devil Don’t Go”: Co-written by Ms. King for her 2015 album “Love Stuff” it is a rather dark sound about living such a wicked life that even the Devil won’t go where you have been. Ms. King shines in this quick-paced song.
  1. I Told You I Was Mean”: Ms. King gives the song a folk rock feel with a slow rhythm. Written by Ms. King for her “Love Stuff” album it speaks about having a love ’em and leave ’em attitude that has her latest boyfriend in tears.
  1. Kocaine Karolina”: Ms. King gives the song a country feel with her banjo playing. Another song co-written by Ms. King for her “Love Stuff” album.
  1. Under the Influence”: Another song co-written by Ms. King for her “Love Stuff” album. It shows how well Ms. King can project a range of emotion through her voice in this song that compares longing for a loved one to waking up after being under the influence of alcohol.

  1. American Girl”: Ms. King does a superb job of taking this Tom Petty & Heartbreaker song and making it her own. It talks of a girl raised in a sheltered life and told promise of how life is suppose to be only to find a complete different world.
  1. Last Damn Night”: Ms. King can certainly belt out a tune as she gives powerful performance in this song about living life to its fullest. Yet another song she co-wrote for her 2015 album “Love Stuff”.
