Since 1979, Kim has performed in bands ranging in size from duos to 16-piece swing bands, and in genres including rock, folk, country, jazz, blues, r&b, funk, fusion, hip hop, Calypso, and Carolina beach music. She has played on the same bill with notables including Billy Joe Royal, Beth Nielsen Chapman, and the original Cheap Trick, and her band mates have included former members of Gladys Knight's band, P-Funk, and The Drifters.
In 1996 Kim took a break from the live performance, but she continued writing and adding to her catalog of original music. In January 2000 she released the self-produced CD, "dreams & memories", a collection of short songs she wrote between 1979 and 1994, reflecting her folk rock and jazz roots. In March 2002 Kim returned to the stage, playing her own music, as a solo act. In June 2012 Kim released the Celtic flavored, "Wintersong," which is now available for download as a single mp3. Kim is currently working on recording all unreleased songs in her catalog, so stay tuned for more!
