Emily King and Ayana Contreras Dig in the Crates on Reclaimed Soul
Written by Ayana Contreras on March 27, 2019
According to Ayana Contreras of Reclaimed Soul on Vocalo: “I think Emily King’s album, Scenery, is definitely something special… reminiscent of early (For You/Prince-era) Prince, dripping in drum machines, with a smattering of Maria Mauldaur’s earthiness and vocal elasticity. She’s a rock-solid songwriter, but I’d argue that her slinky, smoky voice is the star of this story.”
For this excerpt of Emily’s visit to Reclaimed Soul, Ayana pulls from her expansive vinyl collection to make music selections tailor-made for soulful singer/songwriter Emily King. The pair discuss vintage cuts by The Doobie Brothers, Batteaux, Lou Courtney, and more.
