ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You've seen this talented lady on BONES, VEGAS, 3 BROKE GIRLS, and THE VOICE. Now, you will be able to hear her and see her in her debut single/video, BRAND NEW DAY [STRONG ENOUGH], her first release from Nu & Improved Records/RGP. This amazing debut, an event recording session featuring Pattie Brooks, Charlo Crossley, Cynthia Manley, Scherrie Payne, Jim Gilstrap, Joyce Vincent, all directed and vocals arranged by Pamala Vincent, and produced by legendary club dance producer and remixer Rick Gianatos, shows off a voice that fans have heard in live performances and stage musicals.

Her name conjures intrigue and fascination...her voice as sultry and haunting as a southern summer...Kim Yarbrough...One of the world's most gifted vocalists. Versatility is her middle name. Classically trained, she sings in every style, from Broadway to Blues, Rock to R&B, Jazz to Jingles and everything in between. Her vocal prowess has been compared to the likes of Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson and Barbara Streisand. Her latest comparison is "Jennifer Hudson meets Chaka Khan". She dominates every element - stage, film, recordings. Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph has dubbed her "Little Aretha," Teena Marie has labeled her voice as "The Truth," and legendary singer/actress, Della Reese is quoted as saying, "You owe it to yourself to see Kim Yarbrough."

With an extensive background in theater and dance, she is an extraordinary über talent-- a quadruple threat. (vocalist, actor, dancer and instrumentalist) Kim began as a young actor at the age of eight, and by the age of fourteen, many of the most respected professional theatrical stages in her home of Memphis, Tennessee began to take note of her talent and cast her in featured roles, or as the lead. These productions began as dramatic works, and grew into fully staged musicals and operas; and led to phone call after phone call to do studio recording for legends like the Rev. Al Green and perform live with artists like Bobby "Blue" Bland. But the applause in Memphis only offered a taste of what was to come, becoming a springboard for performances at some of the most prestigious theaters in the world: The Guthrie Theater, The Children's Theater of Minneapolis, the Wilshire Ebell Theater in Los Angeles and the Le Clef Theater in Paris, France.

She toured the United States in 1993 in the National Tour of "Ain't Misbehavin'" in the role of Nell Carter. The offer to do this role came subsequent to the First Annual African-Americans and Europe International Conference in Paris, France, where she was a featured actor and vocalist in that history-making event.

Kim has garnered national attention in commercials, television, motion pictures, radio and indie films. She recently made co starring appearances as an actress on the smash hit television series "BONES," and the Hallmark Channel film, "Love Will Keep Us Together" with David James Elliott (JAG), and as a singing guest star on the teen comedy sensation "Sonny With a Chance" on the Disney Channel. Smash hits it seems, are Kim's domain. Her soulful, searing vocals have been featured regularly on the hit television series "Sons of Anarchy" and "K-Ville." She is also a regular co-host on LA Talk Radio's number-one rated "On Air With Tony Sweet".

Kim has been met with rave reviews and throngs of fans at her outrageous production shows, dancers and showcase bands at the nations' hottest and most notorious venues and festivals-- The Hollywood Bowl, The Rainbow on the Sunset Strip, The Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas, Prince's fabled First Avenue and Glam Slam, B.B. Kings on Beale Street and Universal Citywalk, The Mint, The Derby, Stevie's Creole, The Old Daisy, and Monsoon. She is a regular fixture at the infamous and star studded R&B Live Hollywood and Upright L.A. Cabaret.

Kim picked up her first violin at the age of seven, and to her parents' amazement, immediately began to play recognizable and mellifluous melodies on the instrument, all before her very first violin lesson. Being a violinist from childhood, she was afforded the opportunity to play professionally early on. As she devoured every sonata and symphony she could get her hands on, her folks could barely keep up with her schedule of rehearsals, lessons, auditions and symphonic performances, taxi-ing her from one end of the city (and sometimes the state) to the other. She ultimately went on to major in Violin Performance in college, with a minor in Classical Vocal Performance. The pinnacle of her instrumental career came with a request to play for The Vice-President of the United States and making her Los Angeles debut not as a singer or actress, but as a violinist in the Kenny Loggins TNN television special "December," with noted violinist Karen Briggs.

She made LA her home nearly a decade ago, and since arriving in Southern California has enjoyed a dazzling career, holding her own alongside international artists and celebrities: Jim Belushi, Katy Segal, Loretta Devine, James Blunt, Mo'Nique, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Lalah Hathaway, Macy Gray, Freda Payne, Allyson Williams, Jackeé, the late Fred Travalena, and living legends Stevie Wonder and Della Reese. Reese produced a stage show in 2008 entitled, "Della Reese Presents Kim Yarbrough."

Songwriting, singing, acting - just the tip of the iceberg for MS. KIM YARBROUGH!
