Kim McMechan is a poet, photographer, and folk/roots singer-songwriter who was just approved for a FACTOR grant to record with Canadian blues legend and producer, Colin Linden (he’s worked with wonderful artists such as Bruce Cockburn, Colin James etc.).
After the release of her EP Little Grey House in 2006, she was voted the Okanagan’s Best New Artist. Many of her songs have received awards, including honourable mentions in the Great Lakes Songwriting Competition and the International Songwriting Competition. Her songs, which often begin as poetry, are grounded in the details of the everyday—laundry and tomatoes and sidewalks—and are often tingling with the bittersweet. The past few years have found her working on new material and attending art school at the Centre for Arts and Technology. She is currently in the process of making plans with producer Colin Linden for her second release, which she plans to tour in the spring and summer of 2012.
The grant she has received provides 79% of her expenses so If you’d like to help her raise the rest (which she’s doing through pre-sales) click here.
