I had never heard of her before I saw her live at SXSW in 2015. I wish I'd heard this album before then, because the songs are definitely engaging, the music is great, and her talent just can't be denied. Something about the mix or something just doesn't come anywhere close to capturing what it's like to hear her live. She BLOWS YOU AWAY. If you're only able to go see one act this year, trust me, see Kate Tempest. You will not be sorry.
