Biography

From the heart of Arkansas' verdant Ozark Mountains, singer/songwriter
Kasey Kimmons is as natural as they get.
In short, she is a Southern lady and a hippie chick with a funky
streak. Instead of a medicine bag of wild fauna, her healing agents
are euphonious melodies and a songbird voice. Her original songs
strike chords of universal and timeless struggle and celebration of
the human condition. She sings with conviction, from the soul, and she
plays with passion.
Other than an RV, the singer travels light: Old gold chair/step
ladder, a microphone, and her guitar.
Kasey recognizes the power of words and the responsibility of saying
something important onstage.
In 2008, Kasey's music highway took her coast to coast with sets in
San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, and Nashville.
When Kasey arrived back home she entered The Great Arkansas Talent Search. Among 400 singers, she came out on top and won a
recording/production showcase with Virgin Records Group. She is presently wrapping the recording process up in the studio.
When the musician turns songwriter it is early in the morning, usually
after an emotional upheaval. It takes discipline to get up at 4:30 and
sketch out a song from a sound in your head, but that's the way she
works.
"I went a couple of years without writing any songs, so anytime I get
inspiration to write a song I'm going to get up and do it."
A bit of genetics come to play in how she got into this line of work.
She grew up around music and by the time she was 7 she was on tour
with her family singing onstage with her father's band, The Ozark
Operetta. Tom Kimmons, philosopher/folk musician, instilled her early
on with the love for music and life on the road. Her mother, the
manager, gave her the smarts on the business end.
"The road was our home during the summer months. We treated it like a long vacation because we were going to different places, having fun and doing what we loved to do." Kasey added

Lyrics

Call on Me

Written By: Kasey Kimmons

I have seen the morning when the sun burned full of color that spread radiating light inside the valley where I live. And I have climbed the mountaintop and soared beside the red-tailed hawk and gathered all the secrets that a forest cared to give.

So call on me when you think your free, come to my home and rest your weary head. Call on me when you think your free enough, free enough to live the way you said.

I have roamed the woodland through the flaming leaves of Autumn and breathed the dazzling fragrance that the Ozark breezes blow. And I have swum through pools of gleaming water lined in mossy ferns to kiss my naked lovers warmth and feel our beauty flow.

So call on me when you think your free. Come to my home and rest your weary head. Call on Me when you think your free enough, free enough to live the way you said.

I have heard the evening when the night sprang live in music. I have harmonized the whippoorwill and howled the grey wolves verse. And I have knelt my head down to a pure and bubbling mountain stream to suck the perfect water from the bosom of the earth.

So Call on Me when you think your free. Come to my home and rest your weary head. Call on Me when you think your free enough, free enough to live the way you said.

Free enough to live the way you said.

Fallin'

Written By: Kasey Kimmons

It was the night before we rang it all in, that's when the story begins, that’s when I met you. You had the widest eyes that I'd ever seen, don't you know that they were looking right at me. Oh you know that's the truth.

That's why fallin, fallin hurts so bad, make you feel a little crazy, make you feel a little mad. That's why fallen, fallen it's all I got and I can't shake it off.

Well I got 587 miles of road, keeping me from where I want to go, a place that I ain’t never been. And once I get there I wouldn't doubt when I tried to go home and turn around, the road will disappear in the wind.

That's why fallin, fallin hurts so bad, make you feel little crazy, make you feel a little mad. Why fallin, fallin its all I got and I can't shake it off.

Well I ain’t that pretty and I ain’t that smart, I ain’t got no money or fast new car,. Could you want someone like me? I play on my guitar every once in awhile, I wrote this song for you does it make you smile? Boy, I hope that it do!

That's why fallin, fallin hurts so bad, make you feel little crazy, make you feel a little mad. Why fallin, fallin its all I got and I can't shake it off.

Captain Song

Written By: Kasey Kimmons

Your easy like flip-flops, bright as the sun, my favorite treat to eat, I wanna get me some. A cool drink of water, fresh and clean, sharp as a tack and quick as a spring.

So go and tell the captain, go and tell him what I’ve done. Tell him I was just havin’ fun. Tell the captain, go and tell him what I done. Tell him I was not the only one.

A sweet collaboration pushin’, passion and pain, you got the power and baby I got the shame. The funny, funny, funny thing is that we both just want somebody to blame.

So go and tell the captain, go and tell him what I’ve done. Tell him I was just having’ fun. Tell the captain, go and tell him what I done. Tell him I was not the only one.

Your funny like a comic strip I laugh out loud, your not too prissy, your not too proud.. But blind as a bat because you did not see, The kind of trouble you were gettin by gettin to me.

So go and tell the captain, go and tell him what I’ve done. Tell him I was just havin’ fun. Tell the captain, go and tell him what I done. Tell him I was not the-only one.
