About Kim Edwards

KIM EDWARDS didn’t set out to write a record about love and heartbreak and didn’t notice that the order in which she chose to sequence the songs told a story until after it was set. The Pennsylvania-based songwriter wrote the follow up to her acclaimed 2012 debut full length Wanderlust – which debuted at #25 in the iTunes Top 200 Singer-Songwriter chart - without a specific concept in mind, letting her muse take her where it would. “To be totally honest, I never noticed until it was done how the track order contributes to the narrative,” says Edwards. “Truly, I didn't consciously write the songs or sequence the record with any sort of theme in mind; it just kind of fell into place,” she explains. “Which is funny, because after Wanderlust I had hoped for the next record to be a bit more focused and crafted-together. Thankfully, it happened that way quite naturally, because I certainly didn't have a specific plan in mind!” The songs on Lovers and Loners do seem to encompass all the stages of love and heartbreak (which is why in the end, "Lovers and Loners" turned out to be the perfect title for the EP). Each track contributes to the story, and yet they were all written with the intention of standing on their own. The record begins with "Love," infused with the cautious hope that come with maybe just having met that special someone. "Stay" is exuberant with nervous energy and swelling hope, while "The Book of Love" blushes with heady joy. "Words" speaks to the demise of a relationship, "Lovers and Loners" stands in the rubble-strewn aftermath, and "The Sweetest Sound" meets you in your grief and gently warms with the faint glimmer of hope that one day you might learn to love again. Written over eighteen months split between her ancestral home in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania and her adopted home of Dallas, TX, the bulk of the recording was done in Dallas, TX at Randy Adams’ Studio X and at the Dallas Baptist University Music Business Studios. "Stay" was produced and recorded entirely by Marcus Ashley (Little & Ashley) at his studio in Laurel Canyon, CA. Edwards studied classical piano starting at age four and was a piano performance major in college. Yet despite such an academic background, she has a free-spirited creativity and deep sense of musicality that keeps her work joyfully accessible. Her voice rings with silken purity, made all the more memorable with its subtle touch of grit. In 2009, Edwards released her first self-titled EP (produced by Will Hunt (Ryan Cabrera, Amy Lee) and Ken Calderon). Since the release of Wanderlust Edwards has performed with artists such as Jars of Clay, Shirock, and Zerbin and was featured in the acclaimed NY Songwriters Circle showcase. “Life is filled with highs and lows and everything in between,” says Edwards. “I think this record will speak to anyone, whether they're a lover, a loner, or somewhere in between.” Lovers and Loners meets people wherever they might be, slings an arm around their shoulder, and walks with them wherever they need to go. Kim's newest record, 'Lovers and Loners' was released on September 25, 2015 and is available now! iTunes: http://bit.do/bk2Xd Amazon: http://bit.do/bk2Yk Google Play: http://bit.do/bk2ZJ ----- Kim Edwards is a Pennsylvania-based singer-songwriter who began piano lessons at the age of 4 and grew up listening to a healthy dose of everything from Mozart to The Beach Boys to Queen. With roots steeped in classical music and an appreciation for well-crafted pop, Kim’s uniquely playful musicality has garnered favorable comparisons to artists such as Ingrid Michaelson, Regina Spektor,and Christina Perri (with a hint of the Beatles). In 2009, Kim released her first self-titled EP (produced by Will Hunt (Ryan Cabrera, Amy Lee) and Ken Calderon). Her first full-length album, Wanderlust (produced by Randy Adams), was released in 2012. Described as "epic and elegantly emotional chamber pop", Wanderlust reached #25 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart, an impressive feat for a totally independent, DIY artist who used standard networking platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Kickstarter for exposure. Since the release, Kim has been featured on numerous podcasts/radio shows (LA Talk Radio with Guy Towe, WCWP 88.1 FM Long Island, Up Close & Acoustic with Charlie Silvestri on WBZH) and music blogs (Adnams Brewery's April 2012 Artist of the Month, NYSongwriters.com’s June 2013 Artist of the Month). She was a selected participant in ASCAP’s 2013 Jerry Ragovoy Songwriters Workshop and a finalist in the 2014 Philadelphia Songwriters Project Competition. Her songs have been placed in ad campaigns for Chaco Shoes, Parexel, and Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons. Kim has opened for artists such as Jars of Clay, Shirock, and Zerbin and has played notable venues such as Room 5 in Los Angeles, The Bitter End in NYC, and Eddie's Attic in Georgia. She performed at the 2014 Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) Expo in Las Vegas and has also been featured in the acclaimed NY Songwriters Circle showcase.
