A powerful performer with an undeniable stage presence, Kim Wempe lets loose a compelling force that pours out emotion and fire. Some say her vocals are haunting & smokey while others insist she is the child of Janis Joplin & sister of Adele. This Canadian artist has earned herself an East Coast Music Award for Rising Star of the Year as well as nominations for Female Artist, Pop Recording, and Folk Recording of the Year. Wempe has performed alongside Canadian favourites Sam Roberts and Matt Andersen, as well as with Australian legends Diesel, Ian Moss, and the 2013 Woodford Folk Festival.
