“HALL OF FAMERS With a haunting, wistful voice & songs that unfold like wounds opening, the music of Kim Leaman has drawn comparisons to the late Jeff Buckley. July 19th the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame is honoring Buckley & artist Nina Simone, whose song "Lilac Wine" Buckley covered. The Parting Gift, a band Leaman formed in 1997, Leaman wrote all the music & lyrics, was chosen to play 3 songs at the event, the organizers liked Leaman's originals so much, they're letting her play her own music-music that typically involves a mesh of atmospheric space and Leaman's aforementioned drifting, quivering vocals. "I grew up listening to The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, all the greats. I incorporate that into my music with a big twist of my soul and that's what makes it different and not just a copy of one of those artists. I think everyone brings their influences into their music, you can't help it. As long as most of your music is YOU and original." That's Leaman's hallmark, originality. ”
