Album Notes

SKIM weaves together stories of life, movement and love with her fiery rap lyrics mixed with her sultry singing. She has emerged as one of the most refreshing new artists from the Los Angeles soundscape as she flows through elements of hip hop, spoken word and korean folk music. Her reach is continually expanding as her soulful sounds echo across the nation—whether at the Michigan Womyn’s Music or San Francisco’s Pride Festivals, at college campuses or juvenile halls, on HBO’s Def Poetry or on Pacifica Radio, harmonizing with the Chicago Children’s Choir or opening for KRS-One. SKIM is a singing, rapping, song-writing, Korean-drumming, guitar-strumming storyteller, who captivates her audiences everywhere as she defies simple categorization.

SKIM is amazing.
I'm not a hip-hop fan, usually.

This is an exception. She is amazing. The lyrics are moving and real, the music is exceptionally high-quality, and the production is excellent.

For Every Tear
Just Incredible!!!


For Every Tear
The album was awesome. I'm not a hip hop fan at all, but I was totally into this entire cd. She has an amazing ability to bring art to life and make a person KNOW her story. I appreciate her artistry.


This was a great CD. Skim doesn't sell out to mainstream bucks, but sings about things relevant in her day to day life. A true artist.


kick ass cd
When I 1st heard her voice I was enticed.This soulful beauty can put me in a trace. Skim is so deep, so grounded,seems so strong yet so gentle and full of grace. A perfect combination to fill anyones soul. You can feel her love of being such a artistic,lyrical, genius though her music.Once you listen to her voice you'll understand what I'm talking about. This CD is great and I cant stop listening to it.can't wait to get her next album.
Every song I listened to was awesome but loved tracks 13-15..gave me goosebumps she is so sexy!


Less impressive than her live performance, but...
an absolutely unique voice. Supremely talented. Is short of a commercial producer from becoming a true star.


Skim is my hero...
I adore Skim. I was introduced to Skim's sound this summer by some friends who saw her at a small venue in Long Beach CA, and I first saw her at her record release party/concert this summer. I purchased this CD while there, but I had to buy another copy for a friend, who I got hooked on her as well. I've been completely addicted to her lyrics and sound for 6 months, and I don't see it stopping any time soon. Now my only complaint is that she hasn't given us a time frame for her next record release yet! I advise anyone and everyone to listen to Skim. Unfamiliar is my little piece of heaven. Skim is my hero.


love it =)
Great gift for my boyfriend... i knew he'd like it =)... Skim's cd kicked off his collection for 07 year...


Truly a talented artist. I enjoy the whole CD, I love the upbeats when I'm working out and the mellows for relaxing. THe best part of SKIM's music is her lyrics. Espcially in the Korean-American or American-Korean (me) aspect. I like how she incorporates the korean language in a way that relates to most 1.5 or 2nd generations in US... konglish. =)

Amazing CD
I am not a big hip hop fan, but Skim played an amazing cover of Strange Fruit at a local show I went to (Indayog2), and I had to get her CD.
Was a little sad it wasn't on here, but- oh my god, the music that is is amazing.

It is great to hear some gay korean-american music. 'She Said' instantly became one of my favorite songs.

I could not possibly recommend this CD more
