Connect with Kimberly Townsend: Instagram
Kimberly Townsend is an American singer-songwriter based in NYC. Townsend’s sound is a blend of folk, indie pop, and soul, often compared to Brandi Carlile, Sara Bareilles, and Ingrid Michaelson. Townsend’s debut album, The History and the Heart of It, will release first as singles, each with their own music video, exclusively on Spotify and YouTube. It will re-release in its full album form on January 18, 2019 on all platforms. The latest in the succession of singles is “Steps,” Townsend describes the tune as being about “what happens when coping mechanisms keep us from growing. It’s about how it feels to get lost in the haze of seeking validation externally instead of finding our power from within. And it’s about how healing takes time, baby steps, one after the other.”
Release Date: December 7, 2018
Townsend offers a lyric driven empowerment song. Her voice is honest and penetrating.
