Kim is a singer/songwriter based in Wellington. His music music is reminiscent of Elliot Smith, The Sundays and various Finn family members. Half told stories, hung off melodies that are hard to shake... Kim's brand of bitter-sweet folk/pop music is just plain pretty.
Kim has been writing, recording and performing his music for over 20 years. Since an intense two years working with his previous band "Jennifer Says", Kim has been distracted by his work as a comedian and variety entertainer, but he has returned to the musical side of the industry with his debut solo album Cold Since June (2010)
Jennifer Says was active from 1999 until 2001. During that time, they played extensively around Wellington, placing 2nd in the Temple Bar singer songwriter grand final. The band also appeared live on "Space" (TV2) with the song Right Here.
Kim's song "Metronome" sat at number 1 on Palmberston North's Vision 100 FM, and was featured on the South Pacific Pictures series "Mercy Peak" (2001 - 2003).
The self produced album sports a possible over indulgence of synths and loops, but the result is a rich and vibrant collection of smartly crafted pop/folk songs.
Kim has already largely completed a follow up album, (his third, including Jennifer Says' "Regular Tones" (2000) ) with much more of a stripped back folk feel to it, focusing on guitars and vocals.
