Kimberly Sutton Band / Bio

Kimberly Sutton has been playing drums since she was a little girl. For her very 1st birthday, her Momma bought her a drum because she was always beating on everything.

Kim wants to stay humble and follow her dreams, goals & passion of playing drums & music. Her Momma, Jan Wyatt, who died from Multiple Sclerosis, is Kim's inspiration. One of the last things she asked of Kim before she passed away was to keep playing and she would be watching from Heaven. Jan was a lead singer, songwriter & steel guitar player. Mother and daughter played a lot on stage together ever since Kim was little and had to stand up to play because she couldn't reach the drums from the stool.
