About:

King Sheim is a project headed by Celeste Felsheim who plays guitar and sings, and filled out by her three best friends on drums, bass and lead guitar. She is primarily based in Seattle, Washington. Her music is fun, upbeat pop, with influences from classic rock and the punk scene in Washington. She prides herself on having a relaxed, badass, and inclusive live show. Girls to the front!! Celeste Felsheim and her bandmates have played venues all over the greater Seattle area such as The Seamonster Lounge, Central Saloon, The Crocodile, The Neptune, Egan’s, The Vera Project, and has played music festivals (Upstream, Folklife, Summerfest) on the east and west coasts. Most recently, she played Soundoff! 2019 at the MoPop in Seattle Center, as a semifinalist.

Praise for King Sheim:

“My favorite set came from King Sheim, a recently developed trio led by the exuberant Celeste Felsheim. What’s remarkable about King Sheim is that you can hear the influences — mostly riot grrl — but never find the sound imitative or reductive. It feels as though they’re in conversation with their musical forerunners. Their rock is a thrillingly shape-shifting kind that recalls the finest of The Distillers and the recently formed Priests. Felsheim, whose hot-blooded singing is as heartfelt as her cathartic growls, proved herself one of the most engaging front-people of the evening.”
