Kimbra

Kimbra, New Zealand born songstress, is not a name synonymous with your average female singer/songwriter. Bringing a modern edge to the worn sounds of soul with a voice that belies her age, her jazz-influenced theatrical pop is inspired by a range of musical genres and artists, from Nina Simone to Bjork and Prince.

Kimbra, New Zealand born songstress, is not a name synonymous with your average female singer/songwriter. Bringing a modern edge to the worn sounds of soul with a voice that belies her age, her jazz-influenced theatrical pop is inspired by a range of musical genres and artists, from Nina Simone to Bjork and Prince.

After 3 years based in Melbourne, Kimbra completed her debut full length album, Vows, released in August 2011. Featuring on the album are producers Francois Tetaz (Architecture in Helsinki, Gotye) and M-Phazes (Amerie, Pharoahe Monch). Her popular debut single and video for ‘Settle Down’ received rave reviews from around the world claiming her as the "one to watch for 2011". Kimbra also featured on Miami Horror's track ‘I Look To You’ and has released four more singles off the album, ‘Cameo Lover’, ‘Good Intent’, ‘Two Way Street’ and ‘Come Into My Head’.

Kimbra's whimsical soul pop invokes both past and modern soul luminaries, but matched with her own intrigue and quirk, a breath mint for the pop scene, and a knack for theatrics to show that being a bit out there is the name of her game. Make no mistake - Kimbra is picking up steam even as she arrives. It's going to be a wonderful trip. « hide
