|Birth Name||Chad Vaccarino|
|Born||July 10, 1985|
His birth name is Vaccarino, but he announced in July 2015 that he had decided to change it to King.
Ian Axel and Chad King met while they were attending The Steinhardt Music Program at New York University. Axel is said to have convinced King to write a song together. King agreed to work with Axel after hearing him sing. They both wrote and performed songs together prior to Axel embarking on a solo career, in which he released an independent album featuring songs that were all co-written by King. They later formed the band A Great Big World in 2012, signing with Epic Records in 2013.
