A Canadian singer and songwriter, Kim has been entertaining enthusiastic audiences across Western Canada with his soulful lyrics and simple melodies since becoming a full time musician in 2016.  Kim plays weekly in Edmonton area pubs and functions, and travels throughout Western Canada performing his original music at festivals and venues.  He is influenced by the writing of Steve Earle and Billy Joel, and the music of Blue Rodeo and The Tragically Hip.  Kim performs high energy pub shows with all the songs you love to sing and hear, as well as performances of his soulful original music.

Kim has released his first album, "Help You Get Back Home", which is available now on all streaming platforms and for purchase here on his website.

Kim and his partner have a 7 year old daughter who has inspired much of his music and is the joy of his life.  When Kim's not sharing his musical inspiration with others, he enjoys spending time with his family.  Kim is an avid sports fan and can often be found playing sports or supporting local teams.
