There hasn't been an Artist of the Month is a very, very long time. This is mostly due to the fact that I've been super bored with music. I'm happy to announce that, as of today, I am no longer bored. I love Kimbra. Her voice is full of heart. You can just see by her live performances how moved she is by her music. It is sooo refreshing to see some one like this because Florence + the Machine seemed to be the only thing playing on my ipod.
Her musical style is very indie pop with a hint of jazz. If you like Adele, Foster the People, and Janelle Monae; I think you will enjoy Kimbra's music. You may have already heard her on Gotye's hit song "Somebody that I Used to Know"; her vocals on great on that track! Did I mention that she has impeccable style and beauty? I love her clothes and she reminds me of a young Elizabeth Taylor.
Kimbra's album comes out in the U.S. market on May 22nd. The album is called "The Vow" and it will feature lovely songs like "Two Way Street" "Cameo Lover" "Settle Down" and "Good Intent". Check her out in the videos below. I hope you enjoy her music as much as I do.
