Venue: Streaming Cafe
Event Time: 7:00 pm

Kim McMechan will be sharing her story & creativity with us.

Nov. 14 @ 7pm at the Streaming Cafe

Kim 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.

Her new album is about to be released (the one recorded with Colin Linden) so I’m sure we’ll have some good stories about that process as well.
