Emily King— Emily King is a Grammy-nominated American singer and songwriter. She started her career in 2004 and her debut album East Side Story was released three years later in August 2007. In May, 2012 Emily was awarded the Holly Prize (a tribute to the legacy of Buddy Holly) from The Songwriters Hall of Fame and Songmasters for recognition of the "all-in songwriter" whose work exhibits the qualities of Holly’s music: true, great and original.
Shelley Nicole— Soul/funk outfit blaKbüshe is fronted by Shelley Nicole, who dominates their live shows with a fierce stage presence. Armed with empowering anthems, like the “irresistible dance groove” (Curve Magazine) of their single “blaK Girls,” and a raw rock immediacy—which Shelley Nicole describes as “Nona Hendryx meets Black Sabbath”—blaKbüshe brings a brash, four-on-the-floor energy to BAMcafé Live.
