Hotly tipped song bird Kimbra has announced her biggest Australian tour to date as she gets set to launch her album Vows on the 2nd of September.  Kimbra is already proving herself as a songwriter and music stylist beyond her years. ‘Settle Down’, the first single lifted from Vows, won first place in the Pop/Top 40 category at the The International Songwriting Competition (ISC), the world’s preeminent global songwriting event.  Most recently Kimbra was also awarded the prestigious Vanda & Young Songwriting Award for her 2nd single ‘Cameo Lover’. Kimbra is a much in demand duet partner, with her vocals on Miami Horror’s single I Look To You and also performing a duet with Gotye on his haunting hit single ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’.

Kimbra’s debut record Vows has been three and-a-half years in the making, recorded and arranged at home as well as in various studios. Really just knee high to a grasshopper in the scheme of things, Kimbra already has the maturity and musical sophistication of the mavericks she is so often compared to – from vocal legends Nina Simone and Jeff Buckleyto the likes of Björk and Janelle Monaé. Kimbra co-produced Vows alongside the refined skills of François Tétaz (Bertie Blackman, Gotye) and Australian Urban export M-Phazes (Amerie, Pharoahe Monch). Kimbra has just wowed the crowds at Splendour In The Grass and fans can also check out Kimbra at Parklife, Queenscliff and Homebake as the summer festival season hots up.
