It all began at the famous Heaven Nightclub in London when a mere teenager followed a friend to a drag audition and decided to give it a go.
Since then, pop artist Paris King has been impossible to put back into any kind of box. Raised by a Jamaican father and Celtic mother in London, Paris grew up in an atmosphere of music running blood-deep.
While both lineages informed a broad range of musical influence, Paris’s journey in melding such disparate identities found its home in London’s all-inclusive, ever-expressive drag scene.
Taking a bold leap into mainstream pop music, King began releasing singles and creating music videos in full drag, challenging stereotypes while calling in everyone she represents—which includes, well, just about everyone.
