Exclusive Kimbra interview after the Franck Sorbier Show. She arrives on time with Franck Sorbier in Paris downtown closed to the Palais Royal. Very pretty and very fresh, she looks like my daugther, Dgena the bloggeuse, and of whom she is a fan (Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know ). She met Franck Sorbier on Internet, and she appreciates his work. The Master Class Franck is probably the best creative fashion designer in the world.
The 24-year-old New Zealander is in Paris, and she is the new egeria of the Sorbier fashion house. Kimbra Johnson has been playing music since her early teens, but she really started when she had the chance to move to Australia, where she continued her musical pursuits and was able to produce music that is funky, soulful, and full of fun.
Prince and Michael Jackson to Minnie Riperton are her model. I listen Stevie Wonder and Rufus Wainwright. I’ve been influenced by the Dirty Projectors and tUnE-yArDs for their uses of amazing vocal work and layering. I also love the Japanese producer Cornelius.
Have you always wanted to be a musician?
Since my early age I have been playing music and I started writing songs and picked up a guitar at 13 or 14. It is at that time that I realized that “Wow, I might actually make this a career.” It sounded very cool to pursue it; to do something really good with something I love to do most.
