BANDS & PROJECTS
Kim's own quartet is constantly evolving through improvisation and interaction. The music is always personal with a strong jazz approach. The two albums capture the unique spirit and musical development of the group. In 2019 the third album, The 7 Year Itch" was released and it has Kim In the Middle written all over it: a surprising repertoire in a creative atmosphere, surrounding Kim's clear, warm and superflexible voice.

Kim and Arne collaborate frequently in different bands and line-ups, but for this new duo project they give preference to "the song" (chanson - Lied - fado?). The voice gets the chance to sing about the things of life, short stories to the tunes of the great musical blacksmiths of the USA (or elsewhere occasionally).
