What some may call “luck,” others call DESTINY. Since birth, Kim Tibbs has been honing her craft…Crediting her late father, Pastor Robert L. Tibbs for her musical ability. Kim has over thirty years of musical experience as a vocalist and accomplished Arranger, B-3 Organist, Keyboardist, Lyricist, Pianist, Producer, and Songwriter.
Since last year Kim has been steadily building a fan base as a solo recording artist, her debut digital single “I Need You For Your Love” a No. 1 hit in the UK Soul Chart, and No.4 rating In Top 100 of the year’s best soul records. “Soul!” built on her popularity by hitting No.1 in the same chart this year and so securing the interest and demand for an album.
Kim grew up in Huntsville, Alabama, discovering music as a toddler, developing over time as a leading Hammond Organist, an unusual skill she shares on this, her debut album. “Kim” is a celebration of that which makes her strong: a journey through her childhood to now in which she explores each poignant stage in her life. Inspired by Wilson Pickett, Janet Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, and more influences can be heard on “Kim.” She says,” This album is a live project that doesn’t utilize samples, metronome, or other people’s trends; however, it does pay homage to those by whom I’ve been influenced. I hope others will find little gems here and there and return to the beginning as there is something very special here”.
Kim is currently an Endorsed Hammond Artist with Hammond Organ Company USA, a Roland Artist with Roland Corporation US, a Peavey Artist with Peavey Amplifiers USA, and a Slick Audio Recording Artist; as well as a Staff Writer for the Songs of Love Foundation; She is also a Council Member of the Board of Advisers in the College of Arts located at J.C. Calhoun Community College and holds a Bachelors of Arts and Science in Business Administration, Double Masters Degrees in Organizational Leadership and Masters of Business in Public Administration as well as currently working on a Doctorate of Business Administration in Leadership. She is also engaging in live tour dates in support of “Kim”, from which her new single is “My Better Side”.
