South London’s Kimberly Anne serenades us with a beautiful performance of ‘Liar’, the lead track from her forthcoming EP.
Rising soul star Kimberly Anne is a unique breed. Her unique blend of calming vocal tones and rich classic-sounding soul is set to propel her into all kinds of success over the next 12 months.
The former BRIT School attendee has just put the finishes touches to her forthcoming EP, which has seen her collaborate with a selection of acclaimed producers who have previously perfected tracks for Bastille, Lianne La Havas and Ed Sheeran. Today we’re delighted to get a first-look at lead track ‘Liar’ which is a melody rich tune that is driven predominantly by Kimberly’s vocal inflections, aided by an acoustic guitar and a propulsive drum beat, used sparingly.
Having grown up fascinated by the music of The Cure, Bloc Party, and Tracy Chapman and the narrative rapping of Nas and Common. She started out performing at the local South London poetry nights, but a tender word from an encouraging booker broke the news to Kimberly that performing with a keyboard is, really, more musician than poet, forcing her to admit she had quite accidentally become a songwriter.
‘Liar‘ EP is released on August 25th.
