Kymberley Kennedy at The Duchess

York-based RnB soul singer Kymberley Kennedy will be playing the Duchess next Sunday 5 July alongside Australian singer/songwriter Gabriella Cilmi’s new project, All Kings and Queens, in a joint headline show.

Kymberley‘s emotive vocals, sultry song-writing and superb melodies to form dark RnB soul, reminiscent of BANKS and Delilah. Her solo career officially began with the release of the distinctively minimalistBlackout EP. It was a unique, mysterious symbol of empowerment. The stripped back percussion, accompanied only by her soulful vocal, caught the attention of national radio, publications and film director Aram Rappaport, who later used the track in the movie Syrup.

Gabriella Cilmi shot to fame in 2008 when her debut album Lessons To Be Learned became an international success. Her new project All Kings And Queens is a duo with her brother Joseph. Listen out for their debut track Animals on a dancefloor soon.

Kymberley has been showcasing her music at Madia Vale for BBC Radio 1Xtra and Proud Camden. She will be hosting a competition to win tickets to the show at The Duchess shortly.

As a result of the positive reactions to Blackout, she has several further EPs and vocal collaborations due for release later this year.

Her live performances are unique pieces of art that will entice and excite listeners for more. “I’ve always wanted to make music that resonates,” says Kymberley. With her unmistakable sound she demonstrates the very essence of what makes alternative RnB Soul relevant.
