Maybe you recognize Kimbra from the Gotye video "Somebody I Used to Know" or maybe you know her for her solo career. In any case its time you all know her. My first experience was watching Kimbra's video of her Nina Simone cover "Plain Gold Ring" which I then proceeded to blog about here then watch daily for at least 2 weeks. At only 22 this New Zealander is incredibly talented and has made a huge name for herself in Australia and New Zealand. She is in the process of taking the U.S. by storm. I tried to buy tickets to her first Los Angeles show but it sold out within five minutes!! Tuesday she is releasing her album Vows in the U.S. with nearly half of it being new songs not on the Australian edition. You can now stream it on NPR. For more Kimbra music videos click here.
