Join Washington Performing Arts and DowntownDC for this installment of the weekly DowntownDC Live outdoor concert series.
Alt rocker Courtney King does not want to be easily classified, so she is covering all bases. She describes her style as rock, punk and blues merging with classical, avant-garde and progressive rock. What’s certain is that this singer, songwriter, guitarist and flutist with the siren-like voice has an unforgettable sound that harks back to a classic rock vibe while placing herself distinctly in today’s milieu of empowered women artists.
Her debut album FEEL GOOD SWILLER features a collection of songs reminiscent of early Heart and its merging of influences such as Led Zeppelin and Jethro Tull with their own distinctly feminine, wistful folk and pop styling. Along with Heart, Courtney references artists that have influenced her as diverse as Paramore, Joan Jett, Jack White, Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys, to name a few. Fans describe her as “Jimi Hendrix on the flute” and having a style akin to “Hayley Williams meets P.J. Harvey.”
This event is in partnership with Downtown DCBID.
