Released in Australia in August 2011, Vows has earned Kimbra a "one to watch" rave from Rolling Stone Australia, won her the ARIA (Australian Grammy) for Best Female Artist and spawned three hit singles. These tracks, “Good Intent,” “Cameo Lover,” and “Settle Down,” are also included on the US edition of Vows. Kimbra recorded additional tracks for the release in Los Angeles, CA with such producers and songwriters as Mike Elizondo and Greg Kurstin.
Originating from Hamilton, New Zealand, Kimbra has been performing her jazz-inflected pop since she was 14. Kimbra's haunting vocals and impassioned delivery on the Gotye track "Somebody That I Used to Know" have helped propel it to an international hit: the video for the song has over 99 million views and is at the top of the US radio charts.

This is a great debut by an intriguing new artist from New Zealand. I first heard of her when she featured on Gotye's “Somebody That I Used To Know”, but she is clearly much more that just that. Her unique songs have an almost jazzy influence but is very different from anything you've heard before. I hope she makes many more albums and soon.
