POP: Today's Top 40, ROCK: Funk Rock
With a voice that is unabashedly unique and outspoken, Kim Loren has carefully crafted her influences from rock, pop, and soul into a sound and style that is all her own. I Should've Told You, her remarkable three-song demo produced by Paul Umbach (artists on Jive, Interscope, Sanctuary and Geffen), introduces the world to this charismatic and colorful new artist.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Washington, DC, Kim grew up surrounded by music. "My parents lived for music," Kim says. "They were especially into old-school R&B. I knew all the words to every Volt, Stax, and Motown song there was before I could spell my own name."
Despite her parent's objections, Kim decided early on that she wanted a career in music. While her parents insisted that she get an education, Kim grabbed at every opportunity she could find to be on stage. She did theatre, was the lead singer and songwriter in a successful local band, danced on MTV, and even cheered professionally. But once she finished school, Kim moved into a tiny New York City apartment where she could barely make the rent and began taking every music lesson she could find. "I had been writing songs since kindergarten. I always had music in my head," Kim says. "It was in my heart, in my soul, and in my body. But I needed a better way to communicate with other musicians. So I learned to play piano and guitar and I took theory, voice, and songwriting lessons. I wasn't joking around."
The result is a voice and point of view that is unparalleled in its uniqueness. Unlike many of her peers, Kim is not angst-ridden or overly preoccupied with romantic longing. She is vulnerable, sensitive, tough and opinionated all at the same time. "Life is what you make it," she says. "Even when it sucks. I've always felt that the world was my oyster and it really comes out in my lyrics. I guess it's an entitlement and self-esteem thing mixed with a few hard-learned lessons. That's some powerful stuff."
The three songs on the demo - 'I Should've Told You', 'Getting Over You', and 'So What's it to Ya' - were all written or co-written by Kim. "I wrote 'I Should've Told You' one afternoon after a phone call to my mom. I was thinking about all the opportunities I had missed to tell my parents that I loved them over the years. 'Getting Over You' was a co-write with Jessica Salvatore. The song started out as a vehicle for Jessica who was going through a breakup at the time. I loved the feel of that tune for this demo so I ended up rewriting the lyric to tell more of my story and less of hers." 'So What's it to Ya' was co-written with guitarist Vicki Genfan. "Vicki and I met by accident at a rehearsal studio. She played this amazingly soulful riff on her guitar and sang the beginnings of a melody. I begged her to let me take it home and work on it. Lyrically, I think that song really speaks to how I felt all through high school. All the fakers who want to be your friend one minute then they're talking about you behind your back the next. I can't stand that."
While putting together the demo Kim was adamant that the songs blend classic R&B with modern rock and pop. "I wanted to be fresh and provocative while still paying tribute to all of the great artists that I grew up loving. But my taste is so eclectic. I spent almost two years just trying to find the right producer. But I hit the jackpot with Paul. He really captured everything I wanted to feel in those tunes."
But it's not all about production. Kim Loren is the real deal and truly delivers live. "I live for being on stage. Everything I do is all geared toward that moment I get to walk out there and rock your world!" At a recent Prince tribute, where Kim was showcased along with a host of NYC's finest downtown singers, Robert Christgau of The Village Voice wrote "...and best of all, a 'Get Off' by a compact ball of fire named Kim Loren that was comic without wasting a volt of the song's erotic charge."
Kim Loren always knew she wanted to make music and entertain the world. With I Should've Told You, Kim is empowered to do just that. The world is indeed her oyster.
