Emily King has been nominated for two 2020 Grammy Awards — Best R&B Song for her single “Look at Me Now” and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical for her album Scenery and its engineers Tom Elmhirst, Ben Kane, and Jeremy Most and mastering engineer Bob Ludwig.

Rave Reviews for Scenery:


Scenery is a precise-yet-fluid blend of ’80s pop and rock, contemporary R&B and light jazz touches that, together, reveal a starry-eyed earnestness.” – NPR


“Sleek, vibrant R&B that’s packed with 1980s soundtrack flourishes and big moments; it’s the perfect frame for her extraordinary voice.” – Pitchfork


“Wide and expansive and embraces all manners of genre befitting a child of ’90s hip-hop and pop music who also adored traditional soul music.” – Chicago Tribune


“A lithe vocalist who deftly employs subtlety, rewarding close listening.” – WBEZ Sound Opinions


Scenery rings out with joy and hope. The production is a stunning combination of jazz-inflected R&B and ’80s pop that’s precise but not fussy, textured but never overdone.” – KPCC The Frame


“The vulnerability that’s implied in King’s calming vocal caress is remarkable… The skill she shows elevates her above much of the competition, imbuing her with a decided level of class and credence.” – Paste
