Elle King Plays Banjo for Woodroom Session

by Jamie Latty

Did you know that Elle King plays banjo? The incredibly talented Elle King performed in the Deering Woodroom recently, armed only with a Sierra banjo. The Ohio born songstress is emerging as a rising star and has seen great success in the last year, receiving a Grammy nod for her platinum selling track, "Ex's & Oh's", as well as several prominent performances including The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Bonaroo and SXSW. 

Elle is often seen on the road playing her Eagle II Woody (a standard Eagle II without a tone ring) but dropped by the factory to place her order for a very special banjo while in San Diego. While she was here, of course we had to ask if she would like to record a Woodroom Session.

Luckily for us, Ms. King is a true pro and couldn't have been more gracious with her time and picked out a custom Sierra with a pop-on resonator and Kavanjo pick up to play.

You can watch the interview to accompany this song, but in the meantime, without further ado, we give you Elle King and a solo rendition of her song "Good To Be A Man".

P.S. Remember that special banjo we just talked about? Make sure you watch this priceless video of Elle's reaction when she received it while out on tour!
