This week’s Tuned In Tuesday is brought to you by Saskatchewan/Nova Scotia artist Kim Wempe. I hadn’t heard of Kim prior to seeing her perform at a showcase I watched at this year’s ECMAs, but after seeing her incredible live performance, I knew that I had to look into her more. Her voice which has the same kind of quality as Serena Ryder with its rasp, and her captivating stage presence had every eye in the house on her. Her songs, beautifully performed went over well with everyone in the audience. My favourite would be “Never Promised You Nothing”. The song comes from her latest album that was released in September of 2013 called ‘Coalition’. Other great songs that you should definitely check out off of the album would be “Down Here”, “The Only One” which features Tim Chaisson, and “The Cost”. If you ever have the opportunity to see Kim perform live, make sure you’re there because you will not want to miss it.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
