About 

Kim Johnson

 

Kim Royce Johnson first started performing publicly some 20 years ago and has been gigging as a guitarist and singer-songwriter since then.

Kim can play solo or with guest musicians brought in from time to time.

He is forging a new direction into original inspired oceanic music and back of the panel van 70’s classic rock covers with a laid back style infused with covers from the likes of JJ Cale, The Doors, and The Triffids.

 

With a solid background of blues, expect uptempo songs with a beat as well as ambient moody songs for listening. The ebb and flow of Kims music is like sitting out the back, lapping up the sunshine waiting for a wave, and then launching into the next wave in the set, for a heart pounding ride into the tube.

This is sure to please a crowded bar of any age with uptempo swinging tunes to mellow moody ballads with insightful lyrics and sensitive guitar playing with lots of interesting dynamics.

 

With vocal styling influenced by Lou Reed and Tex Perkins, Kim delivers heartfelt expressions in his vocalising, blending easily with finger picking, blues influenced lead playing, and steady rhythms to provide a bed of soulful grooves. 

 

Recent guest artist collaborations have been with well known south coast players such as Dave Rastrick, Jay Cook, Jo Sharp, Terry MacKintosh, Bevynn Wilkerson and Bruce Anthony.

 

A reliable performer on the south coast music scene, at venues such as Wilsons Brewery, The Earl of Spencer Tavern, Six Degrees, Hybla Tavern, Due South, Boston Brewery, Vancouver Arts Centre, Denmark Artshouse, Three Anchors Restaurant, Boatshed Markets and various public festivals and events are where Kim has played over the years.

 

Kim is available as solo, duo, or 3 piece band with a drummer and bass player.  A full Pa for moderate sized venues is supplied if required.
