Kim Versteynen & Tim Finoulst
The Duo Kim Versteynen and Tim Finoulst is a collaboration between two young, sensitive musicians in the most transparent way possible: voice and guitar.
It is a very intimistic project, though a delightfully enchanting one. Kim and Tim tear away from the traditional soloist – accompanist roles and work their way towards each other through interaction and improvisation: music in the purest sense with loads of creativity. They combine the warm sounds of their instruments with an abundance of personal interpretation and empathy in a wide-ranging repertoire of original and other compositions.
On July 21st 2013, they won the Concours Des Jeunes Talents at the Dinant (B) Leffe Jazz Nights festival. The jury praised the audacity of the project, the quality of the musicians, their soberness and intimacy, the way they adapt popsongs to the jazz tradition and their stage presence. Their first album, "First Time", was released on November 1st, 2014.
