kate-tempestEssentially a spoken-word artist backed by a full band, it can’t be easy for Kate Tempest to make her stories heard in a live context.  Regardless, she pulled it off with aplomb, lighting up Sage Gateshead’s Hall One last night with her honest brand of spoken-word and general likability.  Kate-ye TempWest [as she will henceforth be known] also took the opportunity to rail against luxury developers buying up London property and speak up in favour of “creative communities”; “less empathy, more greed” being the mantra of the night.  Check out 6 Music’s coverage of the footage below.
