King’s multi-dimensional passion for her craft ripened while attending college, where she not only taught herself guitar, but was also featured in several magazines, commercials and music videos. She also performed in multiple musical theater tours, and became an Apollo Legend.
Most recently, King has toured with Chinese pop sensation Jane Zhang in Beijing and Chengdu, appeared on multiple television shows including How I Met Your Mother, Work It, Love that Girl, Dark Blue, and the The Bold and the Beautiful, to name a few. She is currently in the process of recording her debut album featuring rock legend, Gary Levin, in which she blends her classical opera roots with harder rock elements creating a new genre of music.
King’s refreshing and sultry sound serves as a resurrection of a genre nearly forgotten by the majority of today’s generation. She is most inspired by the greats… Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Etta James, Minnie Ripperton, Jimi Hendrix, Kathelen Battle, and Deynce Graves, and is motivated by her love for and extensive training in Opera, Jazz infused Classical, and Soul.
As both an artist and a creative force, Kristen Henry King has only begun to scratch the surface of her potential and will prove to be legendary force in her own right.
