AUSTRALIAN TOUR / ALBUM RELEASE


“…one of those strong, raspy voices that’s only made better by whiskey and more emotive by a sad song. She embodies the storytelling nature of the country genre, that slow burning hurt we know to be true of the blues, and these soulful gospel melodies that recall something almost spiritual.”

Alan Cross – Canadian Radio Broadcaster and Music Journalist

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, a small Canadian farming town, KIM WEMPE hit her musical stride after moving to the arts/cultural hub of Nova Scotia in 2008 to complete her Jazz Degree in Voice and record her 2009 award winning debut album Where I Need To Be. Following the much-lauded debut, the sassy Blues/Folk singer/songwriter collaborated with some of Canada’s finest musicians (Joel Plaskett, Old Man Luedecke, Thom Swift & Geoff Hilhorst of Deep Dark Woods) for her 2nd (award nominated) album Painting With Tides.  After four years of touring consistently, including performances at festivals & the Vancouver Olympics, Kim is set to release her third album and hit Australia for her first bunch of shows.

Kim Wempe’s new album Coalition is roots-tinged pop/blues influenced by Americana storytelling and gospel melodies. Produced by Newfoundland soul artist Chris Kirby, the album showcases Wempe’s powerful vocals like never before. Supported by an insistent kick drum, alternative percussion, layered guitars, blues organ, and a gospel choir, Wempe’s smoky voice pulls the weight of every song like an unstoppable train.  Released in Australia on December 7 through Code One/MGM, Coalition features the infectious single Never Promised You Nothing and a heartbreaking duet with Tim Chaisson for The Only One. 

 

Catch Kim Wempe performing on the East Coast in December & January.  Dates attached.

 

COALITION is out December 7 through Code One/MGM

“That’s the reason why Kim Wempe is going to be huge; she’s got the heart, she’s got the soul and she’s got the kind of voice that holds those who hear it tightly. That voice is magic and no one who hears it will be able to turn away from it.”  Bill Adams – Canadian Music Reviewer / http://www.groundcontrolmag.com/detail/3/3522/
