Highlight Lyric: “You prayed to have your name scattered on the lips of the young/ Now, you claim that it’s you on the tips of their tongue/ And if you’re proud of what you had to kill to get your thrill, well/ I bet it stings to give up everything and realize they don’t want you” from Playing for Keeps

Highlight Review: “Elle King’s voice on stage, backed by a banjo, has all the ferocity of a mountain lion with a bone to pick. The singer-songwriter, whose style tears through the walls between soul, blues and old-school rock ‘n’ roll, follows a storied tradition of women with something to say.” – read more at Austin 360
