Biography

Born and raised in Port Chester, NY on May 23, 1984 as Kimberly Cartagena. I am 27 years old and I am of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent. I currently reside in Tampa, FL

Since the age of eight music has played a major influence in my life. I am a Singer as well as formidable Songwriter. I have played the piano, baritone horn, clarinet, violin and am a self taught guitar player. Having knowledge of all these instruments has helped my development as an artist and songwriter.

In 2004, I continued my devotion to music by moving to Florida and enrolling at the International Academy of Design to receive an A.S. in Digital Production. I recently graduated in October 2010 and received B.A. in Recording Arts.

I have done shows at the Pour Out Your Talent Showcase, November 2010,Cappuccino Night, and opened up for 10 time Grammy Award winning nominees "Third World" at the Reggae Jerk Jam in 2009.I was also a Semi-Finalist in the competition "Queiro Cantar," November 2010.

Influences from Pop, Jazz, Acoustic Soul, R&B can be heard throughout my music.

My music reflects many of my life experiences and is a window to my soul and are the definition of an open book in my world.

My music reveals unveils me as a person. It is who I am and who I will always continue to be.

Lyrics

So Selfish

Written By: Kimberly Lecar

(Verse 1)

You're calling
You don't know why
You can get me out your mind
But try your heart
Inside of me there's more to see
I change like the weather
I told you
You're in for a ride

(Chorus)

So you put up these walls
I see right through
You're your own prisoner
Had me wrapped up in your skin
Now tell me what's the lessoned learned
So Selfish
Words you told
Still deserved a second chance
Sit back and then just listen
Cause you don't deserve a second chance
Oh no, no you don't

You tell me I'm so selfish baby
I like your style

(Repeat Chorus)

My Love

Written By: Kimberly Lecar

(Verse 1)

You're so scared
You don't even know if you want me
Can't compare
To the past you have behind
And that means that you're not mine

(Prechorus)

Open your heart
See what's inside
Open your mind
If you could see that

(Chorus)

Life ain't always about
Strips of film
What's your possession
Can not fulfill
Like my Love
Oh my love, my love, oh my love

(Verse 2)

A thousand stares
Some looks,more feels, more touch
Maybe that'll be enough for you to see
Your fancy cars, watches and clothes
Won't be right by your soul
They won't met you down that road
So I say

(Prechorus)

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

Want to see you
Want to hold you
Want to be all about you
If you can't let me in
You'll search from within
You'll realize that I stood by your side
And you can't compare my, my love oh

(Chorus)

Frozen

Written By: Kimberly Lecar


(Verse 1)

I thought I'd spend the rest of my life with you
And now you've left my heart bruised
With all the reasons I make
To try to justify my life
If I'm the reason she took you away
And in my heart you still have stayed
The time still can't erase
Still feeling trapped inside

(Chorus)

I can not live like this no more
I can not fight myself no more
Can't make excuses anymore
My memories are frozen
(repeat)

(Verse 2)

My selfless will
My life is torn
You have the keys to my soul
Can't let you in
No more control
You see I must move on
Sit back and think
Then wonder why
My life within still can't pass by
The clock stops turning
My world's burning
Stuck in this time zone

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

Oh, they're frozen
Oh, they're frozen
And I gave you all
And you just couldn't see
No you just couldn't see it

(Chorus)
