Kim Lamothe Tree-oh

Kim Lamothe Tree-oh

 Providence, Rhode Island, USA

Dynamic guitar playing matched with imploring and well crafted poetic lyrics make Kim Lamothe a performer, not just a songwriter. Full band performances under "kim lamothe tree-oh" with Brendan Whipple on upright bass and Eric Hastings on drums.


Kim Lamothe is a singer/songwriter (organic gardener) with a unique ability to match poetic lyrics with rhythmic guitar. Her voice has a pleasant tension of emotion and expression with a unique delivery style. Finger-plucked ballads and driving rhythms make her songs diverse and her performances imploring.

Give an organic gardener a guitar and you will get deep rooted songs that bloom.

Accompanied by Brendan Whipple on upright bass whose techniques of bowing, harmonics and drumming on the bass give a unique sound and compliment Lamothe's guitar/vocal approach. Add Eric Hastings on drums who's sensitivity to vocal delivery and dynamics completes the tree-ohs well-rounded sound.
