Kate Tempest – “Lonely Daze” (Audio)

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

katetempest_lonelydazeIt’s rare when you hear a spoken word artist who stops you completely in your tracks! Kate Tempest is so arresting in her delivery, you have no other choice but to listen! Hailing from South London, Brockley, Tempest captures the essence of London life through her storytelling, though often a grim reality, there still lies redemption in every song. Her sophomore album Everybody Down hits stores May 19th through Big Dada and will be 12 chapters of one overarching story with production from Dan Carey (M.I.A., Bat of Lashes Santigold, Brazilian Girls).

At only 27 years old, Tempest has covered a lot turf —  she has written three theatre plays Wasted, Brand New Ancients, and Glasshouse shown at various theatre houses in London; published a book of poetry through Bloomsbury, with a new collection scheduled to publish this year through Picador; lectured at London’s Goldsmith University and Yale University for creative writing classes; and has worked on the Amnesty International program assisting secondary (High School) students while write their own protest songs. Check out “Lonely Daze” below, the first single from the her forthcoming album Everybody Down.

Exhibition Road Music Day (London, Hyde Park)

Friday, June 19th, 2009

June09-Exhibition-Road-Hyde-ParkOne of the things we do here is bring to you news about new artists and events. I’m so bummed that I won’t be in London for this one!

OneTaste is hosting the Exhibition Road Music Day to be held at London’s Hyde Park on Sunday, June 21st, from 1pm through 8pm.

The line-up is fantastic. With main headliners Little Dragon; actress and singer Ebony Bones; human beatboxer MC Xander; unique R&B singer Jamie Woon; poet and rapper Polarbear; rapper, poet, and playwright, Kate Tempest with band Sound of Rum; one man band, Joe Driscoll; the soulful electro-pop duo, Pearl Apollo; ska, funk band, United Vibrations; and electronic hip-hop, funk, and broken beats, DJ John Hendicott.

It definitely is “a not to be missed” event. So if you’re in the London area, brush off your Oyster travel cards and spread your sheets on the grass to take in some good music. It’s also a great event for all those hipster pops to spend their Father’s Day soaking in the sun and notable artists.
