Kate Tempest - Vicar Street

Main Artist:




Following the release of her highly anticipated new album The Book Of Traps And Lessons critically acclaimed recording artist, poet, novelist and playwright Kate Tempest has announced a headline show for Dublin’s Vicar Street, 15th Vicar Street. Tickets on sale now.

This is the first time Kate and long-time collaborator Dan Carey have worked with the legendary US producer Rick Rubin.  What has transpired is an incredible piece of work that takes the listener on a 45:02 minute journey of highs, lows and core bearing emotions.   The tracks comprise a narrative thread and are intended to be listened to in one sitting.


Of “Firesmoke”, Kate says, “I think of the song like a cleansing moment in the wider context of the record, in the same way that a relationship can be a cleansing moment in the wider context of a life. A kind of a turning point. I wrote it for my woman. Inspired by her and everything that falling in love with her has taught me.”

Since her emergence in 2011 the London-born artist has redefined what it means to be a wordsmith in the Modern Age. To date, she has published three poetry collections, one book-length poem, a novel, staged three plays, and released two solo studio albums—Everybody Down (shortlisted for the 2014 Mercury Prize), and Let Them Eat Chaos (shortlisted for the 2017 Mercury Prize). Along the way, she entranced audiences on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, NPR’s “Tiny Desk,” and more. Not to mention, she garnered widespread critical acclaim from The New York Times, The New Yorker, Forbes, and more, to name a few.
