About

Kim Moberg was born in Juneau, Alaska, the daughter of a classical pianist mother of Alaskan Native Tlingit descent and a US Coast Guard veteran father from Kansas. Music was the constant in Kim's childhood, helping her to adjust to the frequent moves associated with growing up in a military family. 

At the age of 14, Kim began playing acoustic guitar on a borrowed nylon 6 string. A few years later, Kim taught herself to strum and finger pick to her favorite songs by singer/songwriters, but debilitating stage fright kept her from pursuing her own dream of becoming a professional performer.

In 2014 Kim set out to overcome her stage fright and wrote her first song and has since recorded two albumns.

Kim teamed with Grammy-nominated producer Jon Evans to record "Above Ground” which celebrates the achievement of her goal to bring her music out of the basement and “Up Around The Bend” consisting of 13 new original songs and one cover. Both recordings have received world wide airplay and critical acclaim, charting on the Folk International Folk DJ and NACC charts.

Kim has shared the stage with both legendary and contemporary folk artists. Her passionate and heartfelt vocals mesmerize listeners while her compositions tug at feelings of melancholy, heartbreak, healing and social consciousness.

"Kim’s mighty pen is a source of amazing material that bridges the past with the future. She brings stories to life with harmonious melodies, and nothing can be more representative of that than her brand new LP Up Around The Bend. Kim’s stories are real, relatable and can connect each and every listener to their substance. In this world there are some people who write true organic music, music so real, and so important for our times, and that is Kim Moberg. It doesn’t hurt that she has an amazing voice to go with it!!” -Jon Sexauer, Country, American, Roots, Blues Music Promotion
