Kate Tempest - London's best kept secret
The old mantra "good things come in small packages" is certainly true of one of London's favourite performance poets. The small, ginger-haired Kate Calvert from south London is deceptively fiery, commanding attention from at times doubtful audiences with her powerful performances. No wonder she took on the stage name Tempest. Starting out at the tender age of 16, she's been learning her craft for over a decade, performing gigs across the city. As can only be expected from a Ted Hughes Award-winning poet, her raps contain a depth synonymous with classic bards that sets her apart from other lyricists.
Her simple tales of everyday life reflect her philosophy that the world can be changed only through how people treat each other, rather than relying on government reformation. A testament to her genius wordplay, she's had theatre shows commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company and been named one of the Poetry Society's Next Generation Poets in 2014. But her lyrics are equally matched by head banging beats, earning her a Mercury Prize nomination for her 2014 album Everybody Down.
