Submitted by Edie Richardson on Tue, 08/28/2012 - 8:28pm

Kimbra, a New Zealand-born songstress, is not a name synonymous with your average female singer. She brings a modern edge to contemporary pop thanks to jazz-influences and a range of inspirations (Think: Nina Simone, Jeff Buckley, Prince, and  Björk). You may not recognize her names but you already know her voice: she sang on Gotye's multi-platinum single "Somebody That I Used to Know." Wed 8 p.m.
