Emily can't remember a time when the arts did not call to her.
Born in Richmond, Virginia, Emily was raised in a Southern family with Gospel roots and Friday Night Lights. Emily was entranced with performing as early as 3 years old - particularly the moves of Michael Jackson and Tina Turner (in addition to her dad's CCR vinyls.) It wasn't until her Grandmother, Betty, took her to see her first live theatre experience, "Annie," that she knew how it all fit together.
Emily attended Shenandoah Conservatory and achieved a BFA in Music Theatre. After graduating Magna Cum Laude, Emily moved to New York City. Over the next ten years, she worked professionally in Off-Broadway theatre, Regional theatre and National Tours. She has an Advanced Acting Certificate from the Moscow Art Theatre at Harvard University.
Outside of the Arts, EKB is a crazy football fan, follows the Yankees religiously, and claims Roger Federer as her tennis boyfriend. In fact, she has a sports podcast with her hetero-lifemate, Shauna: Two Broads Talk Balls. She loves rainy beach days, hot yoga, Cold Brew, a classic novel, and true crime podcasts.

"Emily King Brown ... a dynamically mesmerizing voice."
Don Grigware, Broadway World
"Emily King Brown is convincing, genuine, graceful and grounded. She understands her character thoroughly and takes advantage of every moment ... This is an experienced artist at the height of her craft."
Radomir Luza, Patch.com
"... the beautiful Emily King Brown portrays several characters that keep you laughing and crying throughout the show. You could hear the audience stop breathing during her stunning version of 'Maybe This Time.' "
Deborah Dodge, myburbank.com
"An all-around brilliant cast... King Brown ... soon morphs into glamorous, self-assured ... a role that [she] plays with abundant verve... and talk about gorgeous vocals, they don't get any better than King Brown's."
