'Music's Kim Possible Proves Just that!'

Combining the savvy of an industry veteran, the voice of an acclaimed diva, a dynamic personality and looks to die for... meet Singer/Songwriter, Kim Kline.

Originally training with Ron Anderson, best known for his work with the Rolling Stones, No Doubt and Janet Jackson, Kim began developing the powerful voice she is known for today. Always looking to hone her talents, Kim now works with renowned vocal technique and performance coach Steven Memel who has trained such artists as Adam Levine and members of Maroon 5, Taryn Manning of Boomkat, Brittany Murphy and Big City Rock.

Fine tuning her music and voice, Kim began to accumulate an abundance of songs, which sparked the interest of the acclaimed music entertainment law firm Felcher & Freifeld, LLP (whose clients have included Pink, Rhianna, and The Fugees) The same day she met with Scott Felcher, she was signed immediately.

Currently living in Los Angeles, the Texas native continues to nurture her singer/songwriter giftedness full time - creating music with the energetic spirit that has always defined her. Kim’s impeccable sense of style shines through as she performs at premiere music venues around town.

After multiple successful gigs at the renowned The Roxy, The Viper Room, The Troubadour, the 2004 LA Marathon stage, among others, Kim Kline clearly demonstrates what she was put here to do. Look for Kim Kline to re-introduce the music industry to the roots of rock with a sexy, young, hip appeal that generates a genre all its own.

Over the past months, Kim has been writing and recording with a variety of award winning and multi-platinum selling songwriters and producers, such as Eddie Galan & Sean Alexander (LeAnn Rimes, Steven Tyler, Disney’s High School Musical, etc.), Mike Sarkisyan (Grammy Nominated Guitarist/Producer), and Tommy Decker (Grammy Nominated Drummer/Producer); and has a self-released, self-titled 8-track debut CD now currently available to the public.

Taking it from the top and what were your musical influences growing up and how many still factor into your music today? "Too many to name them all, but I will give you a sampling…Beyonce, John Mayer, Stevie Nicks, Pat Benatar, The Eagles, U2, Led Zepplin, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys…the list is truly endless."

"Each of these artists influences me…and always will. Their contributions to music can be heard in so many artists…past and present…all the while, many of these legends are still touring today. Now that is a career!!!"

For the Average Joe who may not have heard of you and was thinking of buying your debut CD, how would you yourself describe your sound? "Music that is straight from the heart and honest; with some rock and roll flair."

Indeed, with your album being self-titled was there ever any other possible titles floating around that it could have been named instead? "No, we knew that the debut would be self titled."

It's been stated in your press that while other girls played with their Barbie dolls growing up that you spent you afternoons standing in front of a mirror, singing into a hairbrush. As I know this is sometimes a generic statement for 'wanna-be singers' to recall their childhood's, so did this REALLY happen to you?! And if so, what songs were you rockin' out to back then? "Ok...yes, it is soooo cliché I know...but I really did dress-up and sing into the mirror!!! But hey…you gotta get those face gestures down, right? Ha!"

"My mom was a lover of classic rock…and still is! From early on she instilled my musical influences in me. My mirror has been the audience of my performances of......Pat Benatar, Stevie Nicks, Aerosmith, Led Zepplin all of their songs...all the greats....Dream On, Hit Me With Best Shot, Black Dog, Gypsy etc."

How easy (or hard) is it to constantly create a new, vibrant, wanted-by-the-public sound that both builds on and surpasses the musical wonderment's/accomplishments that preceded it within the industry? "I don't find it hard at all. I always write and create from my heart and soul. It has to move me. I am not trying to make a recipe. I feel that is where music has taken a turn for the worst, TRYING to make a hit! It is way too contrived and comes out sounding like it. That is why the people I listen to/listed are still on the radio and still touring. Real music is timeless."

Please tell us which song on your new debut record is your current fav ... and why?! "'No Fool'...it was one of the first songs I wrote with my band. I also just love the music, lyrics and melody. It’s one of those songs you get in the car, roll down the windows, crank it up and GO!"

If there was something about Kim Kline that wasn't in your bio and press release, but that you would like the public to know about you, what would that be? "That I love to be silly at times and just have fun...life is short...you can't take yourself to seriously."

What '80s (and possibly cheesy!) pop/rock song would you love to cover today if asked ... and why?! "Stevie Nicks’ “Stand Back”...and you know that Prince did the keys on that song....gotta love it!"

Lastly, and throwing in a comedic curve ball, Exclusive Magazine love Penguins ... do you?! "Funny, I use to collect penguins...I love them. I was dying over the movie ‘Happy Feet’! Loved it!"
