Indie-Pop / Pop / Singer-Songwriter
King Princess is a Brooklyn born multi-instrumentalist who is quickly establishing herself as pop royalty. After turning down a record deal at age 11, she spent her teens perfecting her artistry before attending school at USC. Her career took off with the release of her single, "1950," which is currently at over 114 million streams on Spotify alone.
Born Mikaela Strauss, King Princess is known for her addicting indie pop sound and brilliantly relatable lyrics. She is an outspoken member of the LGBTQ community, and redefines femininity with her radiantly reckless and carefree nature. Her efforts have gained her placements in major playlists, sold-out tour dates around the country and endorsements from pop superstars Harry Styles and Halsey.
Her most recent release, Make My Bed, is packed full of dark anthems and expertly showcases her rebellious teen spirit. The video for "Holy" was released July 26 and follows the visual for her breakout hit "1950," which has amassed almost 4 million views since its release earlier this year.
