NYC based singer/songwriter Kimberly Townsend’s lyric-driven, emotive songs captivate, inspire, and console. A blend of folk, soul, and indie pop, Townsend’s sound is often compared to Brandi Carlile and Sara Bareilles. Through a powerful songwriting lens and strong, expansive vocals, she offers an earthy, visceral, intimate spin on telling a story through song.
Townsend’s songs explore vulnerability, pain, and how this life feels. She writes to heal and ground herself, and she shares them to make you feel things. Her most recent work explores the weight of getting lost and feeling stuck, and the empowering release that comes from finding one’s way again.
Townsend’s debut album, The History and the Heart of It, released on January 18, 2019.
