Featured Vocal Artist of the Month – Kimbra

Kimbra is the Featured Vocal Artist for December 2012!

Bio: Eclectic, wild and with a voice to bring down the sky, Kiwi songstress Kimbra is hard to define and impossible keep down. Storming the stages and charts worldwide her music is like a spiked lollipop, shifting its flavors from heart-breaking sweetness to kick-in-the-gut bitterness at a moment’s notice. However, it is all held together by a truly gifted artistic sensibility – and a knack for writing lyrics that deepen the framework of the song, rather than stuff it with fluff.

Unsurprisingly, Kimbra’s debut album ‘Vows’ (2012) is proof of this fearless experimenting, something which she continues in her live performances. An early mover on technology which expands the singer’s creative repertoire, we’re honored that Kimbra has made VoiceLive Touch her main instrument for live looping and sonic control. One need only watch a single Youtube rendition of her hit ‘Settle Down’ to grasp the level of her musical and technological mastery. She is our Hendrix – innovative, inspiring and madly talented.

Kimbra has designed three presets off her live loop performances of ‘Settle Down’ and ‘Something In The Way You Are’:

  1. Kimbra Tri Oc (Settle Down, bassline beat)
  2. Kimbra Lofi Dly (Something In The Way You Are)
  3. Kimbra Tuned (Settle Down, HardTune loop layer)
