Emily King isn’t new to the music world nor is she some hidden talent.  She released her grammy nominated debut album in 2007, three years after signing with J Records.  In 2008, King went the indie route, leaving her label behind and releasing an EP and a handful of tracks.  While King’s indie releases have peaked some interest, it’s her recent single, “Distance,” that’s got every blogger (myself included) in a nerd-filled panic to post an entry about her.  There’s good reason.  “Distance” is one of the most soulful tracks to hit our ears in a long time.  The groove is reminiscent of 60s and 70s soul yet also has a smooth, modern R&B flow, preventing the track from ever feeling dated.  So kick back, relax, rock that silk robe that’s been collecting dust in the closet and enjoy.
