New Zealand-born Kimbra is a musical force innovating the shape of pop today as a songwriter, musician, producer, and adventurous performer.
Kimbra’s debut, Vows, was certified platinum in Australia and New Zealand. Kimbra exploded into the public consciousness that same year with “Somebody That I Used To Know,” a duet with Gotye that earned her two Grammy Awards & has sold more than 13 million copies. In 2014 she released the highly acclaimed album, The Golden Echo, recruiting artists including Thundercat, Omar-Rodriguez Lopez, and John Legend to highlight her eclectic musical style. Kimbra released her third LP titled Primal Heart last year, which she co-produced with Grammy Award-winning producer John Congleton (St Vincent, Goldfrapp) before embarking on a worldwide tour performing with acts as diverse as Beck, Odessa, David Byrne, and The Roots. During this time Kimbra also released an additional version of the first single from Primal Heart featuring rapper Snoop Dogg, and an EP entitled Songs From Primal Heart, Re-imagined. 2019 brought more touring for Kimbra including performances of intimate, unplugged versions of her songs to accompany the release of the Reimaged EP. Kimbra is now working on her fourth album and preparing to star on New Zealand's popular TV series "Pop Stars" as a mentor to some of today's aspiring songwriters, further solidifying Kimbra as one of today's most unpredictable and genre-defying mavericks in music.
