Known by her stage name, "King Princess," Mikaela Straus was born in 1998 to parents who encouraged her musical endeavors. Her father, a recording engineer, gave his daughter free reign of his recording studio, which ignited a passion for performing at a very young age. At the age of 20, Straus released her debut single, "1950," which pushed her well into the limelight and has since then set the stage for what critics expect will be a bourgeoning career. Inspired by legendary performers such as Led Zeppelin and Jack White, King Princess has undeniable talent and promise.
Not Your Typical Princess
Straus had the very unique opportunity to grow up around music and music production, which allowed her to know what she would and would not accept for herself and her blossoming musical career. Before releasing her debut album, King Princess made it a point to discover who she is and what kind of music she wants to share with her audience. As a result, her music deals largely with gender identity, sexuality and the challenges of navigating through life as a person who identifies as queer. The multi-instrumentalist mixes raw emotion with refined talent to call these topics to the forefront with her songs.
