Since 2020, Sarah Kinsley’s rise—concurrent with her music studies at Columbia University—has been rapid. Overall, she currently has 80 million streams across 181 countries, a number that jumped following the 2021, release of her EP The King. The title track went viral on TikTok and is at 39 million streams and climbing. The EP was listed on NME’s list of top debut projects of 2021, the publication raving, “Her transformative songs of growing pains and discovery share a similar intimacy to the introverted, deeply human alt-pop of Maggie Rogers and Lorde.” Kinsley followed that with another EP, 2022’s Cypress. Headline tours and slots on SXSW and The Austin City Limits Festival honed the singer/guitarist’s expressive and unconstrained live performances.
