“If Portishead and Massive Attack got together with BANKS and Ella Eyre, THIS is what their trippy, wayward kids would sound like!”Starting out as a featured artist on tracks, Kymberley worked with A.Skillz, Krafty Kuts and Cut La Roc, honing her skills as a singer-songwriter.
But a shift of focus in 2012 saw the release of her debut EP, “Blackout” propelling Kymberley into the limelight as a solo artist. The self-produced record, which depicted a sexual assault by an ex-boyfriend, became a symbol of empowerment and was play-listed on BBC Radio 1Xtra with praise from MistaJam and Trevor Nelson amidst glowing reviews from The Huffington Post, Fame Magazine and Soundscape Magazine. The critically acclaimed EP continued to gain recognition and made its way to American film director, Aram Rappaport, who used it in the movie “Syrup”, starring Shiloh Fernandez and Amber Heard.It was the plaudit of “Blackout” which eventually led to the conceptualisation of “Make Me Wanna”, the video for which premiered on VEVO last September. “Make Me Wanna” was an uncompromising declaration of sexual liberation, dominion and exploration. It serves as a worthy precursor to her debut album “Head Games”, due for release next year.
