Lillie King, an emerging 17-year-old dramatic pop vocalist and songwriter, will be premiering her breakthrough debut via Mon Hill Records titled “Red” on Friday, October 30.
The lead track from her forthcoming self-titled EP, finds her landing a cheeky, clap-back lyric about a relationship’s breaking point positioned among supportive female backing vocals and a brass line that brings the fire of a lost love.
“‘Red’ is one of those songs that you want to dance to, but at the same time, you want to sit down and really listen to so you catch all of the little intricacies in the music,” King said. “Almost all of ‘Red’ was recorded in a single day — starting with the base instrumental and moving all the way up through the lead vocal to background vocals. I have always connected to ‘Red’ so strongly because there is one clear message: you messed up and I’m moving on without you. Need a breakup song? ‘Red.’ Need some motivation? ‘Red.’ Want to dance? ‘Red.’ It’s all in there, and this song will always be there for any mood you might be in.”
“Red” will premiere at all online retailers on Friday, October 30. While this release marks her industry debut, even at age 17, King has landed applaudable accomplishments performing on the Carnegie Hall and on the Professional Theatre of West Virginia stages. At the core of her music you’ll find a foundation of Van Morrison and Carole King, while her sound would land on playlists between Lady Gaga’s Joanne project, Beyonce’s Love on Top, Adele and Lake Street Dive. Pursuing dual passions, King is equally as talented on the theater scene already logging over a decade of experience.

Lillie King is a teen singer, songwriter and performing artist from a small-town in West Virginia. With a decade of live theater experience already under her feet, King was inspired to pursue a career in singing and songwriting. This distinctive, dramatic pop and adult contemporary artist developed her musical influences from her parent’s 70s classics, new-age Indie rock and piano ballads. She has already amassed a performance at Carnegie Hall, and is a regularly featured actress in many Equity productions at Greenbrier Valley Theatre, the state professional theatre of West Virginia. While honing her craft among the programs at The New York Film Academy, King would land a milestone opportunity when she won “Talent West Virginia” in 2019. Consequently, she was awarded a recording contract with Mon Hills Records. Her debut from those sessions, “Red,” is due to be lighting up the pop scene on Friday, October 30, with a full, self-titled EP slated for November.
