Kim’s charismatic talent captures audiences everywhere she plays, with a voice said to be reminiscent of k.d. lang and a unique guitar style that brings other guitarists to the front row for a closer look.
“.... So this is what acoustic pop is supposed to sound like. Kim’s writing is incisive and thought provoking, her guitar playing grooving and rhythmic, and her singing is all at once dead-on and go for broke. Pack a dress and a toothbrush, Kim, you won’t be home much once this album gets heard…”
Vance Gilbert, Philo Records
“… pop-rock, bluesy, jazzy kind of music sounds like Dave Mathews, k.d. lang, and Tracy Chapman... there is talent here, lots of it. “
Whether performing solo with an acoustic guitar, or backed by a band, her music is injected with an energy and spirit that transcends categorization. Kim can easily be considered a “crossover” performer, appealing to the Adult Contemporary, Triple A, Rock, Pop, and Blues listeners, ranging in age from late teens to “late in life.”
How does she get that sound? One of the most unique aspects about Kim’s music is her ability to create the depth and range of a piano on her guitar using modified capos and creative tunings. For her audience, this translates into uncommon harmonies, visually engaging performances, and a rich sense of the transaction between performer and listener.
Today, Kim’s performances are about much more than playing the guitar. They’re about communicating emotion, bringing an idea to life, and sharing it. Audiences can always count on something fresh and powerful.
“I want to bring the listener into that special place where it’s just me and my guitar alone in a room, having a new song pour through me. This is the most vulnerable, most wonderful place; it is an elusive place that can’t be made to happen - it is allowed. My work is not to perform or act, it is to “be” – that is when there are no bounds, no time, no critics; just flowing creativity, free evolving, ever changing, and not about me. This is the gift of music.”
