(Austin, TX) While waiting in the media area for another interview, a young family approached Kimbra with their little boy. The mother said the boy was Kimbra’s “biggest fan” and watches her videos three or four times a day. “He tells me, Put Kimbra on!” said the mother. The boy was thrilled when Kimbra knelt down to his level and gave him a hug.
Kimbra wowed the older ACL audience as well. This 22 year old artist from New Zealand was first brought to our attention as the featured artist in Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know,” video, but now she’s breaking into her own with her debut album Vows which charted at number 14 in the U.S., number 3 in New Zealand,and number 5 in Australia.
