Unabashed rock is what KIM BINGHAM is all about, replacing breathy and vulnerable female expressions with powerful vocals and resonating guitars.
Kim Bingham began her rock''n''roll odyssey as co-founder, frontwoman and singer-songwriter of Montreal ska phenomenon Me Mom & Morgentaler. This eight-piece band gained a reputation as an unbeatable live act with frequent tours across North America.
Kim left Me Mom & Morgentaler and established herself as one of the most dynamic rock''n''roll performers in Canada under the pseudonym MUDGIRL. She produced her solo debut FIRST BOOK; propelled by the hit single "This Day", this indie EP brought Mudgirl international attention, including a slot on the Lilith Fair tour in the US. Her five-song record generated two more singles and videos, for the songs "Adjusted" and "Contact".
In 2001, Kim reinvented herself once again as THE KIM BAND and released a collection of self-penned songs called GIRLOLOGY, including the Canadian rock radio hit “What A Drag”. A deep connection to her hometown of Montreal inspired her to release French versions of three songs to radio in Quebec. The result was 3 hit singles: a #1 (with “Quel Dommage”), a Top 10 (“Au Saint-Valentin), and a Top 20 (“Femmologie”).
A songwriter in demand, Kim signed up with EMI Music Publishing. She has penned songs recorded by Canadian acts JackSoul and Serial Joe as well as by Belgian bands Spark and Eden, whose cover of Kim''s unreleased tune "Party Girl" hit Belgium''s Top Ten pop chart.
Kim has moonlighted as a guitarist and vocalist for Grammy-winning artist Nelly Furtado and for Juno award-winner David Usher, with guest appearances on TV and in radio performances across the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and the UK (“The Tonight Show”, “Late Night With David Letterman”, BBC’s “Top Of The Pops” and “Radio One” and many others).
Most recently, Kim completed writing the music for two seasons of the hit French-Canadian TV series "Les Invincibles", broadcast nationally on Radio-Canada.
The soundtrack album for "Les Invincibles" was produced by Kim and will be released on June 5, 2007 across Canada on the Warner Music Canada Label.
