When I first heard "1950" I instantly fell in love with King Princess.

Only 19 years old and breaking barriers being all about equality.  Her single "1950" pays homage to the 1952 novel The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith, also to the LGBTQ Community and to queer love.

She was bound to become a musician being that her father Oliver Straus owned a recording studio. There is where she learned to play piano, guitar, bass and drums. She also dabled in music production. King Princess can do it all!

She was even offered a record deal at the young age of 11 but turned it down because she wanted to develop herself as an artist and felt being signed would hold her back from expressing her creativity. Good thing she did because she is crazy dope, super talented, her music is amzing and she will be playing Coachella 2019! 

Don't miss her set!
