Kimbra, Empress Of

When: Mon., Oct. 27, 7 p.m. 2014

Most people are probably familiar with New Zealand songstress Kimbra through her guest appearance on Gotye's earworm "Somebody That I Used to Know." But as evidenced by uniquely poppy but soulful singles like "Settle Down" and her debut album, 2011's Vows, Kimbra is in no danger of being relegated to backup singer. She has a soulful, jazzy powerhouse of a voice—which she inventively loops and adds keyboards and live instruments to—as well as an eye-catching visual style that she showcases in stylish, fun music videos. Her sophomore album, The Golden Echo, released in August, takes the subtle pop beats from the first album and amplifies them, as heard on disco-party pop number "Miracle." Empress Of is also on the bill. (Rebecca Frost)
