Sneaky peeks from the
inside scoop. . .
Kym was born in Vancouver, Canada. Following the critical success of her debut album "Pygmalion," Kym attracted interest from UK management, and has recorded and performed across Canada, in the USA, and Europe since.
At the time of her first signing, Kym was working as a guitar double for Ally Sheedy on a TV show called "Strange Frequency."
Kym's recent full length album was recorded mostly at the studio of London's Lord Fader (aka Lord Veda.) Fader's mentorship and signature beats helped fuel a rare alchemy in "Cursery Rhymes."
Other notable contributions include mastering & mixing by Richard Rainey (U2), bass by John Fortis, additional mixing by Gareth Parton and Canadians John Ellis and Mark Henning.

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