The best kept secret in music


"CD Reviews"

"This is the recording that could well push Kim Wright to the forefront of Winnipeg up-and-comers, striking a fine balance of punk-fuelled,
almost poppy numbers with moody, mid-tempo concoctions....captures the sound of songs of a young woman finding her voice — and setting off alarm bells."
-CD Reviews, March 11, 2004

- Uptown Magazine

"Prairie Music Week 2002 Review"

"...showcasing pipes reminiscent of Joan Jett and Courtney Love...Wright has no shortage of attitude." - Uptown Magazine

"LIVE: Prairie Music Week"

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

"Sounds of the Best Indies"

"...range extends from the alternarock sneer of Garbage's Shirley Manson to the compressed, stylized pop of No Doubt's Gwen Stefani."
-Bartley Kives, April 29, 2004 - Winnipeg Free Press THE TAB

"Local Reviews"

"...she keeps up the butt-kicking and name-taking for much of this 10-track disc.
Once Wright comes up with a few more songs as powerful as she is, she'll really be scary."
-Darryl Sterdan, April 30, 2004 - Winnipeg Sun

"15 seconds with: Kim Wright"

"A sassier local update of Joan Jett with the wail to prove it. Gentlemen may retrieve their dropped jaws after the show."
-Melissa Martin, September 2, 2004 - Winnipeg Free Press


2004 - "Everyday That Scares You"



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, "'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".
