Music

Press



"Her sensual vocals range high and low over fleshy arrangements that emphasize the incantatory powers of repetitive rhythm and the seductiveness of hard-edged rock... One of the most distinctive local rock acts on the circuit..." Noel Murray

- The Nashville Scene


"The stylistic melange here is wondrous.."Breathless" (Kim's Fable's impressive debut record) traverses the globe...the long-awaited becomes truly remarkable. Airplay on Nashville's progressive Radio Lightning 100 has brought lady-in-waiting Collins the awareness her talent deserves, and shows what happens when radio encourages diversity, and the triumph of the worthy."
- Lenny Kaye, famed producer


"Like an exotic butterfly, Kim Collins and her band have taken flight, and fans old and new are watching them soar..." Heather Johnson

- Rage Magazine



"She enraptures the crowd... the ensemble of musicians on stage gives her music a world sound that still keeps its rock edge..." Venus Envy

- In-Review Magazine



"Intelligent, impassioned lyrics weave through an ethereal swirl of Middle Eastern influenced melodies over a flutter and soul-wreching cry...Kim's Fable is a powerhouse that leaves the listener nothing less than spellbound and 'Breathless'..." Darci Monet
- new music media.com


"Ornate, metal candelabras holding dancing pillars of light illuminate the stage...lead singer Kim Collins approaches the microphone, her strong, radiant presence easily eclipsing the decorative stage props...Each [song] contains the band's patented mystic melodies and Collins's expressive vocals which range from a delicate purr to an untamed, soul-stirrling wail."
H. Johnson

- Volume X Magazine


"The Exit/In hosts one of the most powerful, fully-realized live rock acts that Nashville has to offer." Scene music editor


- The Nashville Scene


"Though they've been written about in most every local rag and Southern Music mag around, Kim's Fable is yet to taste the big time (although they undoubtly will), but they know what local celebrity feels like now."

- The Nashville City Paper

Bio

Kim's Fable is taking rock back to the basics with fierce integrity. Their blending of explosive guitars, hard-hitting drums, and mystic melodies create a unique brand of rock'n'roll. The end result is music that is intelligent and intriguing to the listener with a critical ear, but still accessible and easily enjoyed by the masses.

The band originated in 2000 from lead singer Kim Collins’ and guitarist Chris Tench’s ecliptic mixing of mystical melodies, soulful lyrics and instrumentation with powerful rock rhythms. The collaboration of Doc Downs (bass), and Kevin Cuchia (drums) in 2003, with their already successful undertaking, unleashed a captivating sound onto the modern rock scene. Like their legendary influences Led Zeppelin, The Who, PJ Harvey, U2, and Radiohead, Kim’s Fable’s interweaving of worldly sounds and authenticity produce a tangible and passionate performance.

Kim’s Fable continues to celebrate success since releasing their debut album, Breathless, in December 2000. In Nashville, their single, “Cold Hearted” made WRLT Lighting 100 station's top 100 and were voted “the audience pick for best band” on Citysearch.com in 2001. Kim's Fable significantly expanded their fan base through regional touring from 2001-2003 and surpassed more than 500 bands to be selected to perform as part of the 2003 GRAMMY showcase. The band’s 2003 limited EP release, Dancing Under the Pale Moonlight, earned the band further airplay on numerous radio stations with the single “Be Your Own Human”. Their regional fame provided the opportunity for Kim’s Fable to perform with national acts such as Concrete Blond, Ours, Fleming and John, Venus Hum, and with The Strokes at the 2004 Nashville Riverstages Festival.

"Kim's Fable has staked out a unique place in the (rock) scene over the past five years by employing an exotic hard rock sound reminiscent of the late 70’s rock mysticism with sensual vocals that emphasize the incantatory powers of rhythm and the seductiveness of hard-edged music...(they are) one of the most distinctive rock acts on the circuit" - Noel Murray of The Nashville Scene

Kim’s Fable is about to release their highly anticipated EP in the fall of 2005. This EP is a combination of their collaboration with acclaimed producer Roger Moutenot and self-produced material.
