2012 Bio

Kim Imber...
may be described as a poet/songwriter with soul. He realised his passion and gift as a songwriter whilst writing his doctoral thesis relating to Shamanism. One may say it was almost like being "struck by the hand of God". Academia out, songwriting in. He also realised that songwriting and performing was the perfect vehicle for him to express his unique holistic view of the human condition, his philosophies, politics and spirituality.

Having been influenced by many of the Poets of Rock' n Roll, Kim's earth-based rhythms, guitar playing, melodies and natural sense of musical meter help to create a synergy intended to draw the listener into the spell of the song. Accordingly, Kim aims to record his songs in a way that maintains the integrity of his live act, where he plays guitar and harmonica backed with percussion/drums.

Continually honing his craft and performance skills, Kim has performed at small clubs, venues and various festivals around Tasmania. He has performed live on local ABC and community radio stations and receives the occasional airplay. Kim has recently completed his 4th full length CD.
