You can actually feel it! Beautiful! "
-Marilyn Rea Beyer

"WOW! I think it's not only your best so far, that it's likely to be thought of as one of the best albums of this century! And, it is so very important to the future of this planet! I just picked it up today at the post office and I've already listened to it 3 times!"
-Mary Wheelan, Founder RISA, Host of "The Song" FCATMedia Sunderland, MA
"Moberg accomplishes a great deal on this Seven Fires Prophecy album. Her voice is beautifully self-restrained, serving up plenty of emotion in areas of the story when great emotion could not be denied. Her sustains carry power as well the right emphasis in her story line. Her acoustic guitar playing is nimble, skillful, and always in sympathy with her songwriting. Moberg has certainly done justice to her heritage and to the Tlingit tribe from which she descends.
-Bill Copeland, Bill Copeland Music News
"Kim’s mighty pen is a source of amazing material that bridges the past with the future. She brings stories to life with harmonious melodies, and nothing can be more representative of that than there brand new LP Up Around The Bend. Kim’s stories are real, relatable and can connect each and every listener to their substance. In this world there are some people who write true organic music, music so real, and so important for our times, and is Kim Moberg. It doesn’t’ hurt that she has an amazing voice to go with it!”
-Jon Sexier, Country, American, Roots, Blues Music Promotion
"With heartbreak, protest and celebration, Kim Moberg manages to smoothly run the gamut on her sophomore effort “Up Around the Bend.” Kim’s lovely voice works nicely with the tight arrangements, and her songs from this album receive regular air play on my show. She is definitely someone to keep an eye on as her music career blossoms.”
-Bill Revill, Acoustic Blender - WESU FM, Middletown CT
"The title track to Kim Moberg's "Up Around The Bend" sets a peaceful and melancholy tone with the opening words, "Days Move Slow, Yet The Years Fly By". The rest of the album is just as graceful. It will be worth your while to take a listen!"
-Bruce Newman, W-E-V-L, 89.9 FM Memphis, Folk DJ,
Folk Alliance Board Alumni, Entertainment Attorney

The very first time I heard Kim Moberg at the NERFA 2017 Suzi Wollenberg Folk DJ showcase, that very thought came to mind. Kim has a way of uplifting the spirit when it's down and filling one's heart and mind with hope. She is a fresh voice on the scene and definitely wows a crowd. The world is a much brighter place with Kim Moberg.
Listen to Kim's music and you'll be smiling, too."
