Kimbra Lee Johnson (born 27 March 1990), known mononymously as Kimbra, is a New Zealand recording artist based in Los Angeles. Kimbra’s unique musical style draws from many different genres, often blending more modern electropop and R&B with classic jazz and soul musical elements. Her musical influences range from Prince and soul singer Minnie Riperton, to Björk and Jeff Buckley. Her unique style was showcased on her debut album, Vows, which was released in Australia in 2011. Singles from the album include “Settle Down“, “Cameo Lover” (which won an Australian Recording Industry Association Award), “Good Intent” and “Two Way Street“.
A reworked version of the album was released in Europe and the United States in 2012. It featured several new songs, including “Come into My Head“, “Warrior” (on which Kimbra was joined by musicians Mark Foster from Foster the People and DJ A-Trak), and a cover of Nina Simone‘s “Plain Gold Ring”. On 29 August 2011, she released her debut album, Vows, which reached the top 5 in New Zealand and Australia.
