a songwriter, producer, and musician who is truly challenging the traditional terms of pop music today.’ – Coup De Main Magazine

‘There’s an inherent sense of sweeping romance and melancholy in her songs that renders them captivating.’ – PAPER

“1950’ is about as close to perfect as a pop song can get.’ - Pitchfork

Growing up in Brooklyn, New York where she observed a number of the music industry’s greatest artists at her father’s recording studio Mission Sound, King Princess turned down a record deal at just 11 years old in favour of finishing school.

At just 19 years old, King Princess burst onto the international market earlier this year with gold certified, breakout single ‘1950’ which broke the top 30 on Spotify. The track has been streamed over 14 million times in Australia and New Zealand and following a single tweet from Harry Styles quoting the lyrics went viral, the tweet has generated over 300,000 likes and 100,000 retweets to date.

Her incredible debut EP Make My Bed was released in June via Mark Ronson’s Zelig Records (out now through Sony Music New Zealand) as the label’s first release. Featuring exquisite new single ‘Talia’ which has been streamed over 14 million times worldwide to date and an additional three, previously unheard tracks, Make My Bed is an incredible insight into what we can expect from pop’s exciting new artist.

‘... a prodigy in the making’. - Mark Ronson

As an intensifying vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, King Princess is a pop superstar in the making and this show is not to be missed. Secure tickets now to avoid disappointment!
