Country PUNK. Real People. Real Stories. Real Music. One toke more Country than Violent Femmes. One hit more Punk than June Carter and Johnny Cash. Just a dab lower-rent than Guided by Voices. Kimmie & Johnny are a Bloomington, Indiana-based, song-writing Country Punk band. Kimmie is a former Jesus Freak and cult member. Johnny is a defrocked therapist -- and cult member. Four years ago we were homeless on Bloomington’s streets. Thanks to music, today we're not. We've toured regionally for 4 years, playing Melody Inn, Indianapolis; Bluebird, Max's Place, Players Pub, many Bloomington clubs; Phoenix Hill & Third Street Dive, Louisville; many others. We are auditioning for Debi Champion at the Commodore Grille Nashville. Our music is in rotation on Indiana's WFHB, WBIW, WQRK, Florida's WSLR Florida, others. As a tight duo or trio, we fuse elements of country, punk, rockabilly, folk, R&B. With an in-your-face-attitude, slightly lubricated with subversive sentimentality. Our strengths are lyrics and musicianship. Sometimes funny. Sometimes raw. Sometimes beautiful. Depends on the day. "Musicians Kimmie & Johnny..., the rowdy husband-and-wife duo, who met in Bloomington's homeless community, are becoming one of that college town's hottest acts." -- Sarah Zinn, Indianapolis Monthly "Kimmie F'n Green Eyez & Johnny Profane belted out songs about trailer life and police run-ins. The audience, ranging from students to retirees and filling every table, cheered them on. I love it when we get acts and you're like, Who the hell are these guys? Then you get some really great stuff and everyone's rooting for them." -- Bloom MagazinePh: 812 325 7193 eM: email@example.com YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLi_Y4yptuTa4LXB8HdmP1giALPsq1pTnx FB: https://www.facebook.com/Kimmie.And.Johnny Tw: http://twitter.com/johnnyprofane1 Reverbnation: https://www.reverbnation.com/user/login#!/kimmiejohnny Bandcamp: https://kimmieandjohnny.bandcamp.com/ KimmieSave

““Everything else has been taken from me—what do I really want to do?” The question faced Johnny Profane, nearing 60 and homeless, after he had left a “Hindu meditation cult” and then spent 17 years as a therapist working with cult survivors. The answer to his quandary came via Facebook where he linked up with Kimmie F’n Green Eyez, 59. Also homeless after she lost her nursing job “due to a marijuana bust,” Kimmie (real last name Deckard) invited Johnny (real last name Knapp) to Bloomington where they began playing music together. A year ago they were living and performing on the streets. Today they are handing out samples at Sam’s Club, living in a rented house, and hosting a monthly cabaret show at Bear’s Place. - See more at: http://www.magbloom.com/2013/06/kimmie-johnny-a-funky-cowpunk-duo/#sthash.5j1DzUBI.dpuf”
