Kate Tempest

Kate Tempest

A searing talent that cuts across genres with her unique voice, Kate Tempest defies categorisation; playwright, musician, poet, novelist and spoken word artist. She was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize for both her albums, for Best Female at the BRITS 2018,received the Ted Hughes Award, a Herald Angel Award for Brand New Ancients and nominated for the 2016 Costa Book Award for Poetry.

Influences range from Wu-Tang Clan, to modernist poetry, to Tracey Emin. Neil McCormick has described her as ‘Britain’s most acclaimed young performance poet, Tempest can dazzle with scansion and flow, cadence and rhymes, but crucially employs her verbal skills in the service of big ideas – about poverty, identity, consumerism – and strong emotions.’
