“Kim Moberg combines a lovely voice with a deep insight into the human experience.
Her songs evoke genuine emotional responses in the listener, as she carries on the acoustic folk tradition in the 21st century. ”
— Nick Noble, host of THE FOLK REVIVAL, WICN (Worcester Public Radio)
Kim Moberg was born in Juneau, Alaska, the daughter of
a classical pianist mother of Alaskan Native Tlingit descent
and a US Coast Guard veteran father from Kansas.
Music was the constant in Kim's childhood, helping her to
adjust to the frequent moves
associated with growing up in a military family.
At the age of 14, Kim began playing acoustic guitar
on a borrowed nylon 6 string. A few years later,
Kim taught herself to strum and finger pick
to her favorite songs by singer/songwriters of the 1970’s,
but debilitating stage fright kept her from pursuing
her own dream of becoming a professional performer.
In 2014, after a hiatus from music to raise her two daughters
with her husband, Kim set out to overcome her
stage fright and wrote her first song.
Kim's debut CD entitled "Above Ground”, celebrates the achievement of her goal to bring her music out of the basement.
“Above Ground”, produced by Grammy nominated
producer Jon Evans, was released worldwide in September 2017. Kim teamed again with Jon Evans to record her sophmore albumn “Up Around The Bend” consisting of 13 new original songs and one cover, Cliff Eberhardt’s “The Long Road”.
Kim's passionate and heartfelt vocals mesmerize listeners
while her compositions tug at feelings of
melancholy, heartbreak, healing and social consciousness.
