Arts Calendar: Music
My uncle gave me a guitar, I became obsessed with the recordings of the Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens and the like, and I began to figure out how to play some songs. Slowly (though not particularly surely) I would also begin to find my voice as a singer, a player and a writer. Eventually, I found my way to New York City, then on to Los Angeles and onto stages all across the land.
I seek that connection. I search for that sound. I suspect that the universe has some particular resonant frequencies and I believe that is truth that we are all looking for. Just as it exists in the physical world, I think that we can find that resonance in melody, harmony, rhythm and poetry. I was lucky enough to discover it very early on in my life – and so, I take that as a hint from the universe that I should encourage and enable others to make similar discoveries.

Brandon Music is delighted to welcome Kimberly Townsend on Friday August 23rd at 7:30pm. A relatively new artist, and definitely a rising star, Kimberly Townsend is already being hailed as “the real deal”. NYC based sing/songwriter Kimberly Townsend’s lyric-driven, emotive songs captivate, challenge, inspire, and console. Townsend's sound is a blend of folk, indie pop, and soul, often compared to Sara Bareilles, Trevor Hall, and Brandi Carlile. Through a uniquely powerful songwriting lens and strong, expansive vocals, she offers an earthy, visceral, intimate spin on telling a story through song.
