Kim Arrington sang publicly at 4 years old. By 7 years old, she was writing her own songs. Arrington has been described by the Indy Week as ”a singer boasting an appropriately smooth and sultry voice…[Kim Arrington’s songwriting] relishes turns of phrase and unexpected details, subtle character development and sung dialog.”
In 2013, Arrington released her latest musical offering, “Getting II Yes” (Collective Bull), comprised of 10 genre-bending, original songs written with co-producer-pianist-husband Victor Moore. “Getting II Yes” also boasts 3 re-imagined covers spanning from Janet Jackson’s “Control” to Morris Albert’s “Feelings” to Tears for Fear’s “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.” “Getting II Yes” has been described by United Kingdom-based Soul Brother Records as “beautiful, laid back, jazzy soul album… utilizing an amazing tally of 25 different instruments. This album is a refreshingly different and vibrant, yet very accessible.”
In 2008, Arrington released her debut CD, “First Love Note of Kim Arrington” (Collective Bull), which Soul Brother Records described as, “Very good, lyrically-strong, independent soul album featuring real instruments from North Carolina singer-songwriter Kim Arrington, who possesses a really strong, unique voice.” She has sung for thousands in the United States, Italy, Switzerland, England, France, Austria, and Germany.
In 2012, Arrington was the recipient of North Carolina Central University’s 40 Under 40 Award for excellence in the arts. She is the co-founder, along with Billboard-charting singer, Rissi Palmer, of The Relative Pitch, a free, quarterly performance workshop for youth ages 18 and under. Arrington is hard at work on her third CD, “Make Your Luck.”
