Sneaky peeks from the
inside scoop. . .
Kym was born in Vancouver, Canada, but has resided mainly in London UK following the critical success of her debut album "Pygmalion". Kym's decision to venture to the UK via London management and label offer came when actress Ally Sheedy advised her to "just do it."
Kym was working as Ally's alter ego guitar double at the time on a TV show called "Strange Frequency".
Kym's new full length album was recorded mostly at the home studio of longtime producer friend Lord Fader (aka Lord Veda). Fader's generous sharing of his studio, feedback and signature beats helped fuel a rare alchemy that would result in "Cursery Rhymes".
During the final mixing phase of Cursery Rhymes,
Richard Rainey (U2) heard the album and helped bring it's completion to fruition with mastering and a full mixdown on "Arms Length".

Prior to her first recording in London at the Island Records inhouse studio...
Kym's first instrument at the age of 8 was a stage piano that had belonged to legendary Canadian rocker Burton Cummings. She was later inspired to learn guitar when the spirit of Jimi Hendrix came to her in a dream...

birds and planes you hold
let me be your pilot
when the world becomes too old"
