NYC based sing/songwriter Kimberly Townsend’s lyric-driven, emotive songs captivate, challenge, inspire, and console. Townsend's sound is a blend of folk, indie pop, and soul, often compared to Sara Bareilles, Trevor Hall, and Brandi Carlile. Through a uniquely powerful songwriting lens and strong, expansive vocals, she offers an earthy, visceral, intimate spin on telling a story through song.
Townsend's songs explore vulnerability, pain, and how this life feels. She writes to heal and ground herself, and she shares them to make you feel things. Her most recent work explores the weight of getting lost and feeling stuck, and the empowering release that comes from finding one's way again.
Townsend's debut album, The History and the Heart of It, will release first as singles, each with their own music video, exclusively on Spotify and YouTube. It will re-release in its full album form on January 18, 2019 on all platforms.
