Kimbra, NZ 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’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.
