"Songs like "Girlfriend" give ample evidence she is one of Winnipeg's best kept secrets, hopefully not for much longer." - ChartAttack.com

Biography

Powerhouse vocals, catchy pop-rock songwriting, and an attitude to boot! Kim dishes her dirt for you straight up with her 2004 full-length debut, "Everyday That Scares You".

Kim spent 2003 recording "Everyday That Scares You" at Winnipeg's Studio 11. The emotionally charged ten song disc varies from the powerfully hard-hitting "Girlfriend", to the sultry sweet "Hello Angel"; the sullen intensity of "How Do I Feel", to the purely stuck-in-your-head unforgettable "Tired of Floating". Elements of loss and abandonment are intertwined throughout the disc with the theme of letting go, moving on, and not being afraid. Unedited, unabashed, and refusing to keep anything to herself, Kim confesses making this record was by far the scariest thing she has ever done, saying, "...it's very much like allowing the world to read my private diary."

In 2002, Kim contributed a song to Somebody Needs a Timeout, a collection of Canadian artists
performing children's songs for charity (distributed by Sonic Unyon). She has showcased at both Prairie Music Week in Winnipeg and NXNE in Toronto, and was recently hand-picked by Finger Eleven as the opening act for the Winnipeg stop on their "Summer of Judgement Tour". Kim plans on spending the majority of 2004 promoting "Everyday That Scares You".
