A musical adventurer, Kim Simpson specializes in the simple combination of acoustic guitar and voice to express himself and explore the world around him. He has released several collections of original songs acclaimed for what Dirty Linen once referred to as “poetry and power.” He draws from an enormous multilingual repertoire and turns heads with his skills as a solo instrumentalist (a recent release of his is an EP called Tex Mex Guitar, which features fingerstyle guitar interpretations of conjunto accordion songs). Bursting with project ideas, Kim maintains a steady recording habit while performing regularly in the vivacious music scene of Austin, Texas, where he has also kept busy as a radio host on KOOP (International Folk Bazaar) and KUTX (a former host of Folkways). Kim just released his newest album The Comets Swish Their Tails and celebrated with a release show at Townsend on May 2nd.
