At times throughout this EP it was kind of a little Gretchen Wilson with a whole lot more of punches & kicks.”

Reviews

"Kim keeps the music flowing and has a sound that is unmatched and really finely crafted and all the way through the album I actually really heard Kim's incredible vocal range and her stronger than life lyrics." Full review at:     Steven F Adams-SoundwaveOne

“Stylistically, she runs more with Gretchen Wilson than Carrie Underwood  with her undeniable energy and straight down the line delivery making me wonder whether this EP is doing more than merely showing that she can compete with the big names.”      Bluesbunny
