Event description
Kim Lembo presents "Piano Songs," featuring Adam Rossi on piano and special guests TBA.

About this Event

Kim Lembo has been singing blues and gospel-infused music for most of her life. She spent most of the '90s and the early 2000s signed to Blue Wave records in the US and SkyRanch, Blue Tone in France. After releasing four albums on those labels, she took a hiatus from recording. In 2015, she self-released 45 Miles. All songs written by her, 45 Miles is an album Blues Matters Magazine (European Blues Award Winner, "Best Blues Magazine") described as "Magic.”

Lembo says, "Piano Songs is a night have been thinking about doing for years. Stripping down my sound to just vocals and a piano, I want to share the stories of these songs in an intimate setting. When I met Adam Rossi a few years ago working on another project, I knew I had met the player I would ask to join me. We are very excited.”

The evening will be a combination of songs from the last 30 years of Kim's career. Covers, recorded originals and new songs not yet captured. This is a rare opportunity to see Lembo locally. You do not want to miss this.

Quotes:

”One can hear traces of Etta James, Janis Joplin, and even Billie Holiday here and there, but Lembo seems to have her own approach and style. She can growl, purr, shout, and testify with the best of them.” - The Music Scene

“..She possesses the kind of harnessed electricity that would blow the doors down in a packed blues joint on a Saturday night.” - International blues magazine Blues Revue

“With careful phrasing and a gritty edge, Kim Lembo’s voice is a force to be reckoned with.” - Living Blues
