South London native Kate Tempest launched her career at 16, performing at open-mike nights. In 2010, she formed hip-hop group Sound of Rum. Her first poetry book, Everything Speaks in Its Own Way, was released in 2012. In 2013, she performed her work Brand New Ancients with orchestral backing at London's Battersea Arts Centre, which won the Ted Hughes Award for innovation in poetry. Tempest made her solo album debut in 2014 with Everybody Down and returned in 2016 by publishing The Bricks That Built the Houses, which won the Sunday Times Award for Best Selling Novel. Her second record, Let Them Eat Chaos, was released later that year. ~ David Jeffries
