Nova Scotia Roots Artist Kim Wempe Announces National Tour Dates to Support 'Painting with TIdes'

Nova Scotia roots artist Kim Wempe will embark on a cross-Canada tour with fellow songwriter Gabrielle Papillon this fall. Wempe is a true east coast gem! The single "Chameleon" (off of her latest album Painting With Tides) which Joel Plaskett collaborates on, is one of those chill inducing folk songs. Her voice and songs are unforgettable and the east coast has already caught on. Having being nominated and winning an East Coast Music Award and Galaxie Prize for Rising Star Recording of the Year, it's just a matter of time before the rest of Canada catches up.
Other collaborators on her latest album Painting With Tides include Old Man Luedecke, Thom Swift, and Geoff Hillhorst of the Deep Dark Woods. To say she keeps good company is an understatement. Wempe has shared stages with the likes of Jenn Grant, Amelia Curran, Royal Wood, Jill Barber, Matt Andersen, David Francey, Rawlins Cross, Madison Violet, and many others.
"What makes Painting With Tides so enjoyable is that Wempe is an honest songwriter who sings from the soul with music that taps into the inner workings of the human condition - you can't help but feel connected to every nuance and word. Simply put, a full-length masterpiece. Now it is time for the rest of Canada to catch-up." - Stage Door Music Reviews
Painting with Tides consists of eleven tracks that touch on all ranges of the folk and roots spectrum. Recorded by Charles Austin (Buck 65, Jenn Grant).
Wempe's raw and emotional performances have garnered comparisons to Adele, Bonnie Raitt and Janis Joplin.
Kim Wempe's undeniable talent has been showcased at JUNOFest, the Vancouver Olympics, Canadian Music Week, and festivals across the East Coast. In September of this year she will return to stages across the country, bringing her powerful live set to auidences from coast to coast. Touring alongside her is up and coming singer-songwriter Gabrielle Papillon.
