We recently stumbled across this musician when a friend posted the video to Facebook. We clicked. We listened. We loved. So we did some digging about the artist and discovered that Elle King is not exactly new to the music industry but she's what we would call an "emerging artist," she's got over 35 tattoos and she's only 25-years-old.

Oh, we also found out she has a famous dad: Movie actor and Saturday Night Live vet Rob Schneider! Who knew?!

We're always fascinated when we discover that celebs have incredibly attractive and talented offspring, which explains our current devotion to Scott Eastwood, son of Clint Eastwood. But we were especially blown away by Tanner Elle Schneider, who goes by the stage name Elle King, that we felt compelled to make sure everyone on the Internet is aware of her amazing talent. She's not a singer with famous parents like Paris Hilton was a "singer" with famous parents. No, Elle's voice is crazy-good.

Her voice is sultry, sexy and we can't stop listening to her rock-blues-country style songs. Just listening to her makes you want to sit in a dive bar, have a glass of whiskey and see where the night takes you. Do you get the Miranda Lambert kind of vibe from her? We did, but make no mistake, they are definitely are different in many ways.

Elle's debut album, Love Stuff, was released this past Feb., and her newest single "Catch Us If you Can" was featured on the soundtrack for the Reese Witherspoon-Sofia Vergara comedy Hot Pursuit

And before you start to say "of course she's in the entertainment business. Look who her dad is! She's only successful because of him," we're going to stop that coattails talk right now.

"I was born out of a Vegas marriage: My parents got married three days after they met," she told Billboard. Unfortunately, her parents divorced soon after she was born.

"Soon as I was 18, I took on my mom's (model London King) last name because she raised me, and I wanted to be my own person."

Have a listen to her songs and hop on the Elle King bandwagon. We're driving it. Toot-toot! Do bandwagons actually make a toot noise? Whatever, get on anyway. You won't regret it.
