She has eclectic musical tastes, and experience, which influence her writing of melodies, and interesting rhythm and time signature choices. There are definite classical and jazz influences evident. More contemporary influences she mentions are Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, Tom Waits, Suzanne Vega and Carole King.
A lifetime interest in language, rhyme, metre and the devices of poetry ensure that her lyrics are well-crafted. Her use of metaphor is particularly beautiful.
Kim's life experience shows in songs of melody, substance and maturity. She has recently emerged from her garret to share her music with the world, after a dark period of twenty years of not singing, during which she became miserable.
In 2000, after an epiphany at Summersong singing and songwriting camp at Lennox Head, she slowly began to emerge, at first singing in choirs, then recording and performing backing vocals and harmonies for other artists, and finally writing and performing her own songs from about 2005.
'State Of Bliss' is her debut album, released in June 2014, and recorded at Studios 301, Byron Bay.
