Signed, sealed and she’s almost ready to deliver her eagerly anticipated debut album!
Kiwi indie-soul/jazz sensation Kimbra has just announced that she’s signed a worldwide deal with Warner Bros. Records to release Vows, an album she’s been working on for over a year now.
Up to this point, the gorgeous singer/songwriter has been pushing her two singles – ‘Settle Down’ and ‘Cameo Lover’ – independently with much success on the blogosphere and Australian gig scene. She’s gained significant exposure after ‘Settle Down’ got picked up and fanfared on Perez Hilton – that video itself has racked up over a million YouTube views now – and to top it off, she’s been featured in Rolling Stone and both singles have been playlisted by Triple J nationwide.
She’s been described as a collision of Nina Simone and Florence + The Machine but I’ve seen her live and let me just say, she is one indescribable artist. Truly multi-faceted and a melting pot of influences from soul to jazz, indie to pop.
Take a look at her stunning acoustic performance of ‘Settle Down’ here:
And then there’s the joyous current single ‘Cameo Lover”:
I’ve also had the pleasure of chatting with her twice when she was promoting her singles and you can read our latest chat here where Kimbra talks about ‘Cameo Lover’ and what we can expect on Vows.
Kimbra‘s debut album is expected to drop in next few months. Stay tuned!
