Singer and songwriter
Kimberlee to perform at fair
Urban folk singer and songwriter Kimberlee will be performing her music Friday, Sept. 27 at the Cochise County Fair from 8p.m. to midnight.
Kimberlee has been touring the United States the last two years, supporting her debut album, "Learning How To Love." Critics have noted her passionate performances and raw vulnerability.
Intermittently, she has been working on her second album, "What am I gonna do?". She is collaborating with Paul Laurence, who is a multi-gold and platinum award winning producer.
Kimberlee is a confessional singer/songwriter sharing life experiences and lessons learned. From childhood into adolescence, she trained nearly nine years under world renown vocal coach Judy Davis, who has worked with Frank Sinatra, Janis Joplin, Steve Perry, Barbra Streisand and En Vogue.
At 12, she realized her need to express her heart through writing songs and has been ever since. She had received a guitar as a gift and this encouraged her to pursue music more seriously as she garnered the attention of others for her commanding natural vocal talent accompanied by the stringed instrument.
Now, as an adult, Kimberlees soulful pop/rock music echoes her trials and the nuggets of wisdom learned, healing not only herself, but countless others that can relate.
Her music resonates her beliefs of the eternal law "love your neighbor as yourself."
"I am inspired to heal my own heart and plant seeds of awareness and hope in others, while putting on a great show that leaves the listeners wanting more," Kimberlee said.
Some of the artists that have had the greatest impact on her are Wynonna, Aretha Franklin, Heart, Janis Joplin, Jimmi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Melissa Etheridge, Koko Taylor, Toni Childs, Taylor Dayne, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Chaka Khan.
Kimberlee has performed for the United States Olympics, has been chosen to sing the national anthem at professional sporting events, won first place in a Nashville Talent Competition and has appeared on local and national radio and television.
