Born and raised in the small town of Stettler Alberta, award winning singer songwriter Kym Simon never dreamed that her music would be played all over the world.
Kym has a powerhouse voice, a natural and easy charm, and a delightfully cheeky wit. With years of experience under her belt, Kym has evolved into a singing and songwriting sensation–spearheading the creative charge by writing or co-writing all five tracks from her EP ‘Mirror’, which was released on January 29, 2016.
‘Mirror’ follows on the heels of ‘If You Stole My Heart’, released in 2000, and 2007’s ‘Priority’, both of which were recorded in Nashville. For this latest release, Kym chose to work closer to home, laying down tracks at Calgary’s MCC Recording Studios under the watchful eye of veteran producer Johnny Gasparic (Gord Bamford, George Canyon, Clayton Bellamy).
