Album Notes
Kari Kimmel grew up in Boca Raton, FL, and the one thing that was evident about her, was that she loved to sing and create. Everywhere she went and everything she did somehow revolved around music and poetry.

At the age of 3, she was singing more than she was talking. At the age of 6, she was stapling little poetry books together for her family. At the age of 10, she started playing her family’s organ. At the age of 12, she sang for the first time in public in front of her whole middle school cafeteria. At the age of 13, she wrote her first song, and at the age of 14, she became the lead singer in a youth group band. And, that was just the beginning.

Since then, Kari has been completely dedicated to music and her life has been expressed through it. She has since written and performed songs for movies such as “White Chicks”, “Ella Enchanted”, and “Shall We Dance”. She performed her first music video “It’s Not Just Make Believe” which can be seen on the Ella Enchanted DVD and hosted the red carpet premier aired on ABC Family. As well as movies, Kari’s songs have also been featured in numerous television shows as “8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter”, “The Gilmore Girls”, “The Young and the Restless”, “The Bold and the Beautiful”, and MTV’s “Camp Jim”.

Although Kari usually sings the songs she writes, other artists have covered her songs as well. Those artists include: Kimberley Locke (American Idol), Gloria Gaynor, Joy Williams, as well as some overseas artists. Kari’s song “I Could”, performed by Kimberley Locke, soared to number 7 on the charts and remained in the top 10 for 3 months.

The media has also noticed Kari’s talents. Kari was listed as one of the top 50 artists on VH1.com, and has been featured in Demo Diaries and Hit’s magazine as an upcoming unsigned artist. In addition to her writing career, Kari loves to perform live. She has played at various clubs and venues around the U.S., a benefit hosted by Prince Edward of Wales, Teen People Magazine, and performs an open-air concert every Fourth of July in Orlando, FL. for an audience of 30,000.

Kari lives in Los Angeles. She writes for Chrysalis music publishing, and has just completed her solo record entitled “A Life in the Day. “Great music is indefinable. It can trigger things that have happened in the past and take you on a journey that reaches such deep emotions that you may not realize it was music that brought you there. It’s mysterious and it almost has a life of it’s own. It can heal and it can break people down. I write songs because that’s all I know to do. Everything I feel and everything I think about gets poured into a song, and my hope is that it has the power to make people feel things that change the way they look at life.”



to write a review

Steven Leavitt - Don't Call Us Tori

Amazing! A solid, catchy pop/rock record from beginning to end.
Catchy melodies, silky-sweet vocals meet rock-solid production and impeccably crafted songs. This record is a definite winner.

The CD's first track is 'To Make You Smile' is Billboard worthy pop/rock goodness. Kari's lyrics are uncharacteristically upbeat for the subject matter and you can't help but sing along.

The ballads, such as the second song 'Seattle' are piano centered yet complete. Like everything else on the album very well-written.

There are plenty up-tempo tracks too (Makin a Change, The End of Me and You) that keep the record moving. You never get bored. This album is good from start to end.

The big labels really missed out on Kari Kimmel. Fortunately for Kari and her producer (Busbee), they may have struck gold.

triple-threat album
This is a triple-threat album: Kari's powerful yet emotional vocals, catchy and intelligent songwriting, and crystal-clear production make this record a must-have for anyone who enjoys good pop-rock. Kari Kimmel and Busbee make a great team, this album is as good as it gets.
If you are a frustrated Sheryl Crow fan, or you wish that Kelly Clarkson would stop being so stubborn and let other songwriters take the wheel, then you would do well to discover this gem of a record.
