Biography

Kim Powell is an American singer-songwriter living in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico blending sounds of R&B, Americana, Pop and Rock to create her own sultry alternative sound. Women Who Rock magazine writes, "Her lilting voice draws you into her moving landscape, travels of the road and of the heart."

Powell has just completed her second album release titled, Get it Right. An early version of her song, "The Alchemist" has been rotating on Access Hollywood for more than a year. She is actively working to place songs for Film and Television and also on compilation CD's. The making of a music video is also in her immediate plans.

Get it Right was recorded in a casita (small house) in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with versatile, multi-instrumentalist, producer, Billy White as the only other player on the record. "It was such a thrill to work with Billy again and with every tune simply try to find that magical place that only happens when you really let go," says Powell.

Powell has been a featured artist in Women Who Rock magazine and El Petit Journal (Mexico). Her song "Cold Hands Warm Heart" from her debut release, Truth is Invisible won her a Semi-Finalist rank in the international songwriting competition, ISC. Powell has played various prestigious festivals such as CMJ, SXSW, Rocker Girl and toured both coasts in the U.S with former bands. A song that she recorded with former Columbia recording artist, Brenda Kahn enjoyed a live video streaming spot on SPIN.com. One of the highlights of her musical career was when her sensational five member all girl band Morningwood was chosen from hundreds of applicants to play the MTV Sports & Music Festival in Austin, Texas along side of big known bands like Everclear and Wu-Tang Clan and were featured on MTV's "Indie Outings." Powell enjoyed airplay in various cities in the U.S. and has acquired fans all over the globe including, Argentina, Europe and China with her debut release, Truth is Invisible.

With the release of Get it Right, Powell says, "My hope is that listeners get some kind of emotional comfort from the songs and they can really feel an intimacy. All those songs from growing up you listened to on the radio that seemed to speak of exactly what you were going through.....when folks feel that from my songs it is pure, perfection."

Lyrics

The Alchemist

Written By: Kim Powell

THE ALCHEMIST

Verse
The Alchemist left his sheep all behind
Got a feeling in his bones
It was time

Chorus
There's no magic carpet
Or shiny little pill
To show you where your heart is
Like the truth will

The handsome banker
Took the long way home
He used to be a painter
And wonders what went wrong

Chorus

Sha la la la la la la

Bridge
Life is a gift
If we surrender
Take a look inside
And just remember

The lovely housewife
Running the carpool
One day she just didn't show
Up at the high school

Chorus

Sha la la la la la la

Get it Right

Written By: Kim Powell

GET IT RIGHT

Verse
Wake up ten years later
Find it’s all the same
Wishing there was some good reason
But you know that you’re to blame
It’s your last chance to be
The change you wish to see
Close you eyes baby see the light
Coming from inside

When you feel the love
Swirling all around
Make a wish that you might
Never hold it down
Let it flow like the wind
Let blow and bend
Close you eyes baby see the light
Coming from inside

Chorus
GET IT RIGHT
GET IT RIGHT
GET IT RIGHT...

With all your heart
And complexity
Be who you are
What you’re truly meant to be
Not just for you
But for all humanity
Close you eyes baby see the light
Coming from inside

GET IT RIGHT
GET IT RIGHT

Tail of a Loss

Written By: Kim Powell

Tail of a Loss

Verse
What’s it going take for you to see
All the beauty surrounding thee
When you’re lost and don’t believe
There will be me

Years fly by so fast
All the good don’t always last
When your heart breaks there’s no relief
There will be me

Chorus
Faith fades fast on the tail of a loss
And hope is another foolish cost
Hold your up head high let it touch the sky
When fear fools you into thinking all is lost

Bridge
You with your bright light
Don’t let them burn it out
Get on your knees and shout

Hold your up head high let it touch the sky
When fear fools you into thinking all is lost

Bridge

Full Chorus out
When fear fools you into thinking all is lost, when fear fools you into thinking all is lost...
