ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Kim gives voice to some of our most profound human experiences including our fears, our grief, and our painful divisions. And through her soul-full songs she invites us to connect with the power of our shared humanity to move beyond the pain together. Her rich, deep-hearted singing carries us from despair to bright hope; from complacency to compassion and possibility." --Carol Armstrong-Moore

"Together, We Rise" was produced by Resa Gibbs of MSG, the Acoustic Blues Trio, who also guided vocal arrangements.

The amazing musicians who are a part of the Bubble" of Love Band that formed for "Together, We Rise" include Phil Wiggins (National Heritage Fellow 2017) on Harmonica, Eleanor Ellis on guitar and vocals, Gina De Simone on guitar, Pat Quinn on bass and vocals, Billy Mayfield on keyboards and vocals, Eric Selby and Collen Dugan on percussion, and Resa Gibbs on washboard and vocals.

A little about the songs-
"Let Your Hope Grow Roots": like a seed planted on rocky soil, hope can easily burn up in the heat, unless it is nurtured, and given a place to dig in deep.

“Spirit in the Song” “is a testament to the power of music and the Spirit that speaks and moves in and through it whether it is in the church, on the street, in any country and every genre.

“You Made My Heart A Home” is dedicated to my husband Greg Case, who has built many things in his life. I am especially grateful that we chose in 2013 to build a life together!

“Earned My Wrinkles” After being confounded for a long time by the number of very young women who were trying to sell me and others my age “anti-aging” creams, I finally figured it out: it is a conspiracy! They must be jealous! Who wouldn’t be? We bear the marks and the beauty of our lives!

“For Broken Things:” is dedicated to all those who lost their lives to gun violence in the summer of 2016—especially the 49 people killed in the pulse night club on June 12 in Orlando, Florida.

"We Can Rise:: We can choose fear, hate, and division; or we can choose to love, and raise each other up. In practicing love and compassion, we see that together, we rise.

If you love the Piedmont Blues genre
You're going to love this record. Spent an enjoyable Sunday listening. The "preacher lady" has assembled a first class group of musicians steeped in the Piedmont style. Yes, I'm a little biased as some have been my teachers and others friends and mentors. But the "vibe" is real. These gals and guys put it together and deliver Kim's heartfelt writing with a bang. "Earned My Wrinkles" is my fave.
Grab a cup of coffee of tea, put your feet up and enjoy!
