ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With a voice that’s “out of this world” (Green Man Review), Kym Tuvim has won over audiences and critics across the globe. Her music has earned honors from the likes of Acoustic Guitar and The Performing Songwriter magazines to the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in New York (Emerging Songwriter Finalist, 2005 & “Most Wanted” Preview Tour, 2006). Her seasoned guitar work borrows from folk, pop, jazz and blues, seamlessly blending genres with an intricate and deep groove, while her songwriting delivers lyrics that are truthful, smart and emotionally vulnerable. A versatile and captivating performer, her down to earth, openhearted style can have the audience laughing one moment and tearing up the next.

Kym grew up surrounded by music. Her father is a pianist and her mother's father was a pianist, composer and bandleader. Kym was writing songs before she started school and was a multi-instrumentalist by 15. In 1987, she moved to Seattle to study jazz at Cornish College of the Arts under such greats as Julian Priester, Jim Knapp and Hadley Caliman. After graduating, she took to honing her craft in local Seattle venues. When she released her 1996 demo When Allegra, the lo-fi cassette won raves and support from regional and national folk radio and press, as well as a spot at the 1996 Napa Music Festival's Emerging Songwriter's Contest. In 1998, Kym released her first full-length CD. Later that year, The Performing Songwriter Magazine selected it as one of their "Top 12 DIY Releases" and featured a cut from her debut on their 6th CD compilation.

Kym tours regularly around the country performing her music in listening rooms and festivals, house concerts and colleges. When at home in Seattle, she teaches piano to a long list of blossoming maestros.

Reinhard

highly recommended
Kym is a great discovery. Heartfelt lyrics that really suck you in. My favorites: on the mend, i will and hard. You will have to listen over and over again.

Holly Figueroa

simply stunning
No one sounds like Kym, and Kym sounds like no one. You have never heard anyone like her, and you probably never will on commercial radio, so you have to get this record. Immediately.

Kelly Wright

Beautiful! Breathtaking!
I have been a Kym Tuvim fan for a long time. I am so very pleased that she has released a second album and can I just tell you...WOW! "On The Mend" is a feast for body and soul.
Her songs stop me in my tracks every time. The world needs to know about Kym and I am happy to make the introduction to everyone I talk to.

Anna Creech, WRFL Radio Free Lexington

highly requested!
I introduce my listeners to a lot of great music on a regular basis. Ever since I started playing tracks from this CD, I have been getting weekly requests for more. Keep up the good work Kym - I can't wait to hear what you'll come up with next!

Rose

You can feel her music in your soul
I hesitated to write this because I wanted to find the words that would motivate everyone to hear Kym's music. I haven't found them yet...all I can say is there is not a song on this CD that disappoints. Music that is not only heard, but deeply felt. Outstanding effort! Thank you Kym.

a voice that makes you want to listen and care
Kym Tuvim's new cd On The Mend is a thought provoking work that musically is delicious. Lush vocals, driving sounds from a great group of musicians, great arrangements, and a voice that delivers the goods as well as anyone in the business. i highly recommend this work.

andrea

you MUST buy this cd
This is, hands down, the best cd I've bought in the last couple of years. BUY IT, you'll thank me for it later.

lisa

amazing! get this cd!!!
i had the good fortune to see kym play at the rose house of music in berkeley recently and she absolutely blew me away! i immediately bought her cd and it is equally wonderful. she has a deep, mellow, powerful, melodious voice that will lull you and spark you and make you smile.
i HIGHLY recommend purchasing this cd, you won't be sorry! not even remotely!

what are you waiting for?!
within a week i fell in love with kym tuvim and her music and received this cd. she has a voice that fills an entire room, poignant instrumentals, and timing that is unique and smart. she draws her listeners in before they even realize it while telling the stories of every one's life with grace and maturity. "on the mend", "hard", and "i will" are my current favorites. if not for the music, buy this cd to read the liner notes because they are so wonderfully sweet and will make you smile. but seriously, buy it for the music, too! anyone who appreciates indie/rock/folk music will find this album hard to take out of the cd player. what are you waiting for??

Will Thompson

Amazing CD!
From her voice to her writing to the playing to the production, this cd is amazing. But her lyrics are what stay with you. My favorite songs are "Mercury" and "I Will." Definitely give this a listen.
