ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by the cities of Paris, San Francisco, New York and Galway, the writing of Anais Nin and the artwork of Gustave Moreau, Kim's music digs deep and then nestles close to the heart, whispering moments of truth, battling with love and lust and offering an intimacy as compelling as it is provocative.

'You Are Loved' was recorded at Monkeyboy Studios in Brooklyn,NY with producer Brad Albetta (Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson,) and engineer Brian Fulk (Martha & Rufus Wainwright). Featured on the record is Alex Nahas on the chapman stick and Harry Green as well as Matt Johnson (Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Buckley, Beth Orton) on drums. Currently being played on 180+ college and independent radio stations across the country, You Are Loved offers ethereal highs and earthy, melancholic lows - an effortless blend of indie rock and freak folk.

Kim currently lives in New York City and has a not-so-secret love of country music, Muse, Bon Iver, Editors and Oldschool Jungle.

You Are Loved, by Kim Garrison
Kim Garrison’s incredibly moving voice is the clear star of her debut album You Are Loved (2009 – Red Pants Records). Part of its show-stealing strength is that, simply put, Kim Garrison fits the definition of being “good.” She could easily fill a part in a Broadway musical, where range, crispness, and likability are key. But beyond that cookie-cutter ability, there’s a knowing edge, a hard coreness that understands a thing or two about being thrown around by life and could turn burly heads at a biker bar.

Garrison carries a hint of Catpower-like whisper at times, bringing a lounge act element to some of the more bare tracks, whereas on others she soars expertly to cooing high notes that suggest a completely different range of emotions...For such a pipes-driven album, the fact that Garrison is also incredibly emotive creates a double-whammy situation. Chill-causing flourishes and embellishments slip naturally out of the lines, adding to her talent as a storyteller and proving how much personal experience is inserted into the lyrics. Comparisons to Jeff Buckley come to mind, and are indulged by a cover of his “The Sky is a Landfill” as a secret track. A difficult task to be sure, Garrison floats through the song gorgeously without a hint of hesitation, proving it the perfect backdrop for her range. Both artists croon in such an immensely personal way that listening to a performance is not only moving, but suggestive of a journey where the audience is privy to all the lessons learned...You Are Loved is a platform for this singing talent, and an honest declaration from someone not afraid to share.

you are loved.
The debut album from Kim Garrison, “You are Loved”, is an atmospheric, vocal-driven concoction, satisfyingly heavy but not dense. “You are Loved” has an ethereal tone to it, somewhat like the vocals of Bat for Lashes minus combined with smooth, complimentary instrumentation. A highlight of the album is the cover of Jeff Buckley’s “The Sky is a Landfill”, which shows off Kim’s vocal prowess, while still doing homage to the original.
