Mirror follows on the heels of If You Stole My Heart, released in 2000, and 2007’s Priority, both of which were recorded in Nashville. For this latest release, Kym chose to work closer to home, laying down tracks at Calgary’s MCC Recording Studios under the watchful eye of veteran producer Johnny Gasparic (Gord Bamford, George Canyon, Clayton Bellamy).
Throughout her extensive performing career, Kym has shared the concert and festival stage with the likes of Aaron Pritchett, Patricia Conroy, Wendell Ferguson, and Gord Bamford. She has also used her talent and time to support many worthwhile charitable causes -- most commonly ones involving emergency services and first responders, since her husband is a professional firefighter for the City of Edmonton.
All of this musical experience, along with her life as a wife and mom, adds an authenticity and emotional depth to her original songs, particularly those on Mirror.
“I want to show people that you can be a hard-working, family-oriented person, but still be able to live your creative dreams. I have been teaching music and voice lessons in which I’ve added a song-writing component to, and it’s spurred on my own songwriting. I’m spend- ing a lot more time crafting my own material because it’s another great way for me to express myself,” Kym said.
Listening to the infectious melodies and world-wise lyrics of the five songs on Mirror will leave listeners with little doubt as to Kym’s song-writing bona fides.
Kym demonstrates her ample playful side on third single released today ‘Myself to Blame’: “The song is really a tongue-in-cheek look at the “walk of shame”, but from a woman’s point of view,” Kym explained. “We had a lot of fun writing about what it would be like to have this happen and not always have it end up being a bad thing in the end. It leaves you wondering what is going to happen if she stays...the woman in the song may have just met the love of her life!”
With her own strength and self-confidence, Kym’s place in the world of Canadian country music is gaining momentum. As she releases more songs, performs more shows, and dazzles more fans with her easy-going charm, spectacular showmanship, and dynamite voice, she will continue to share her remarkable musical gift from coast to coast -- and beyond.
