A performing songwriter who thrives on involving the audience, Kim encourages her fans to "experience" her shows rather than just watch and listen. Her songs live with a lot of humor and attitude, accompanied by a percussive acoustic guitar.
Based in Memphis, she tours throughout the SE and recently stretched her boundaries to Chicago, playing Uncommon Ground, to Baltimore and Minneapolis performing house concerts. She has also played The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, The Grey Eagle in Asheville, the Arkansas Heritage and Blues Festival in Helena, and Memphis In May in (you guessed it) Memphis. Kim has been nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year by the Memphis Chapter of The Recording Academy and recently was a regional finalist in the Mountain Stage New Song contest performing at Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta. In November 2008, she won the Ozark Folk Festival Songwriting Competition and the opportunity to open for Loudon Wainwright III at the Festival in Nov 2009.
Kim has self-released two CDs, been featured on several other Memphis releases, and is currently working on projects with national independent artists. She has opened for Gretchen Peters and Sara Hickman and performed with Nashville’s Matraca Berg and Deanna Bryant.
Kim is currently serving on The Board of Governors for the Memphis Chapter of The Recording Academy (NARAS) Memphis Chapter.
As for traditional business, Kim has eight years experience in corporate America complemented by as many years working with varied music organizations including The Recording Academy, Nashville Songwriters Association (NSAI) and GoGirls Music.
