Kate Tempest grew up in South-East London, where she still lives. She started out as a rapper, toured the spoken word circuit for a number of years, and now works as a poet and playwright too. Her work includes ‘Balance’, her first album with her band Sound of Rum, ‘Everything Speaks in its Own Way’, her first collection of poems, published on her own imprint Zingaro, which comes with a CD and DVD of live performance; ‘GlassHouse’, a forum theatre play for Cardboard Citizens; and the plays ‘WASTED’ (Published by Methuen Drama) and ‘Hopelessly Devoted’ for new writing theatre company Paines Plough.
Her epic poem Brand New Ancients won both the Ted Hughes Prize for innovation in poetry and a Herald Angel Award. It is published by Picador and is touring nationwide until April 2014. After a sell out show at St Anne’s Warehouse, Brooklyn, Brand New Ancients received a rave review in the New York Times and came to international attention.
She continues to work with music, and featured on the track Our Town, a collaboration with producer duo letthemusicplay (Greco-Roman.) She also featured on the track Hot Night Cold Spaceship (Speedy Wunderground) and has collaborated with Sinead O’Connor, Damien Dempsey and Bastille.
