The rising Memphis-based singer-songwriter will be at Newport Music Hall tonight performing tracks from her impressive and recently released EP "Outcast"

It’s tough to conceive of a bigger break than co-piloting one of the most successful records of the decade, but Hamilton, New Zealand-born singer-songwriter Kimbra’s massively powerful pipes served as the perfect answer to Gotye’s Sting-esque wail on his inescapable 2012 art-pop single “Somebody That I Used To Know.” It would spend eight consecutive weeks atop Billboard‘s […]
