BIO

From the west side of Chicago, Illinois, R&B songwriter KIM B. is turning heads across the midwest. Fans describe her as a “flawless performer” and describes her songs as “what REAL R&B sounds like”. In a sea of overtly vulgar and sexually explicit Contemporary R&B, KIM B. stands out, not only with her ability to keep her music clean yet edgy, but also her well-known stage presence and fluid dance moves.

Her debut self released EP I’m Kim B. featured vocal production from Joshua Welton (Prince) and landed her as a guest on TrueStar Radio - Power 92 and as a performer at the Chicago Music Awards 2008.

Kim B. Continued (Mixtape) was released in 2013. It was a creative combination of original songs and cover-remixes, showcasing for the first time, her ability to twist pop songs and make them her own.

2016 has been a very successful year for KIM B. As she has released her New EP - Phase 3 and her fan inspired merchandise line called “Kim B.’s Clique”. She has also performed at the Illinois Solo Artist Awards and opened for R&B artist Carl Thomas (Verve Music Group).

KIM B. sets the bar for both independent artists and the Contemporary R&B genre alike. She hopes to go on a world tour one day, but in the meantime plans to continue her path as a recording artist and songwriter, as well as help other artists achieve success in the independent music arena.

PHILOSOPHY: I believe Excellence is as close to Perfection as we can be. So be Excellent, for Excellence IS Perfection.
