Biography

Kim Bold: Musician, Writer 
Sounds, Stories and Songs for the Soul

An Aural Eden
Kim Bold is a musician and author with a rare artistic gift in today’s fast-paced and high-tech world. She creatively taps into the living vibrations within Mother Earth and all living things. With each sentence, each tone and every musical note, she creates a garden of sounds, stories and songs for the soul – an aural Eden.

Kim combines musical talent with the gift of storytelling to reawaken one to their life source. She opens an “inner book” re-introducing awareness of the true being dormant within us all. Kim believes that we are all natural musicians and artists and music is the result of enlightenment. However, she has a special connection with the natural world which allows her to offer inspiration and insight through combining creative writing and musical compositions.

A Connection to Gaia
For Kim, earth is one giant living organism, or Gaia. Her gift of storytelling coupled with her mastery of woodwind instruments yields a masterful musical journey. It’s an adventure filled with messages of healing that permeate the soul and provide intensive healing and deep insight. This is what music was always meant to be as a natural extension of human experience. Just as the Shaman and magical musicians of ancient times, Kim brings humankind back to its basal need for imagery. In both an auditory and visual sense, she re-establishes a connection to Gaia in our subconscious minds.

A Seed is Planted
Born and raised in New Mexico, music and storytelling have always been an innate part of Kim’s life. She began her love of writing and telling stories as a young child and music always filled her home. Her mother was a music instructor and church pianist and each of her four sisters played an instrument. This early and constant exposure to music and instruments would prove vital in Kim’s development as an artist. Her first instrument, at the age of ten, was the acoustic guitar. However, woodwind instruments would become her true love, and she began studying the clarinet at age eleven. Kim’s eventual mastery of the clarinet became the foundation of her implementation and an ever-growing appreciation of native flutes.

Hearing Gaia's Call
Kim continued mastering the clarinet well into college at Texas Tech University where she was trained in Classical Music and earned a B.A. in Applied Music. After college, Kim moved to Dallas, Texas and entered the corporate world. However, it wasn't long before she was once again yearning to develop her creative gifts. Intuitive experiences influenced her while listening to the sounds of a Native American flute at a Shaman sound therapy session in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Kim realized, she could amalgamate her musical compositions and creative prose into one powerful talent - she had heard Gaia's call.

Today, Kim performs on various world flutes including the Chinese Bawu, Pennywhistle, Ocarina, as well as Native Flute.  July, 2006, she released her debut CD, Gaia Calling: Spirit Animal Music. Along with a book and guided meditation CD, Kim promotes her creative message of healing. 

In May, 2008, she was given the "Best of the Fest" Music award at the M.A.L.I.'s Austin Woman's Film, Music, and Literary Festival.  In January, 2014, she released her second CD, Into the Cave, representing her very personal journey through the path of the heart.  Her third album, AncesTree, Gift of the Ancients was released in February, 2016 and culminates her deepening experiences with spiritual messages through music.  She is currently producing two new albums that expand both her abilities as an intuitive musician as well as a composer of what has been defined as a "new musical genre" which blends elements of classical and world fusion.

Her music can be heard on many Internet Radio stations, including:  Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio, HeartDance Radio, and more.
