Kim Kenny is a powerful, soul driven vocalist who captures attention the from the first note she sings. An established singer in the DC area for many years, Kim's career really took off after relocating to The Bay. She has shared stages and shows with a many of San Francisco's finest bands, including Con Brio, Mojo Green, High Beamz, The Sam Chase, American Nomad, The T-Sisters, Terrie Odabie, Rusty Stringfield, Andrew Blair of We Become Owls, MISS Erma, The Afrofunk Experience, Joe Cohen, Mystic Man, James Whiton, and Jenny Kerr to name a few. Her ability to improvise and create lyrics and melodies on the spot has earned her the respect of her peers and a place among San Francisco's best singers.
Driven to expand her musical experience, Kim formed her first all original band, Kim Kenny and The Otherlys, in 2012. Calling themselves a SoulGrass Blues band, Kim's thoughful lyrics and sweet melodies were tear jerking show stoppers. The Otherlys ran hard for a year , playing venues and festivals such as Napa Porch Fest, Far West Festival, The Starry Plough, The Art House, The Lost Church, Hotel Utah and High Street Station.
Kim's second orginal project and current passion brings her back to her soulful roots. Up and out of the teary broken hearted love songs of her past, grew soul funk band Kim and the Generations. Self titled as Red Headed Soul - Kim and the Generations is a force of positive, uplifting lyrics, soaring guitars with a bass driven heart beat. A family band, father and son team Patrick and James Morris play together with the kind of instincts one would expect from a lifetime of playing together from the cradle. Along with pocket drummer Tim Cuny, this band gets you up, keeps you up, rocks out hard and without stopping.
Kim is also currently touring with Chris Zanardi's High Beams www.zportalmusic.com In a review she received after a recent appearance at The Crazy Horse Saloon in Nevada City, she was called "the most powerful, soulful singer to ever be on our stage".
