Kim Banffy played at Sydney Spring Summer 2015
Time on stage: 4.50pm
Kim Banffy's music is reminiscent of 60s-70s singer/songwriter style, with a more modern, poppy, at times even slightly jazzy twist. Kim’s songs have been compared by other musicians to Joni Mitchell’s, and her voice to Joan Baez, Karen Carpenter and Sinead O’Connor, ranging from sweet and pure to rich and full.
If you're a lyrics person this is for you. Kim has been dubbed ‘The Poets’ songwriter’ for her ability to build evocative word pictures with lyrics and her skilful use of metaphor. This is an artist best-appreciated in venues where you could hear a pin drop.
Kim’s just-released album, State Of Bliss, features Thierry Fossemalle (The Whitlams, Grace Knight) on electric and acoustic bass, Dave Sanders (Grace Knight) on drums & percussion, the legendary Steve Russell on keyboards and Paul Appelkamp on very sensitively played electric guitar. The album was engineered and produced by ARIA-nominated Anthony Lycenko at Studios 301, Byron Bay.
From Michael Worthington, who mastered the album: ‘This album (State Of Bliss) was a delight to work on. These are songs of melody and substance.’
Kim's songs have been aired on the independent radio stations airplay list, ABC radio, and two of her songs are currently being aired on Californian radio. She has recently played at Maleny festival and toured the NSW north & mid-north coast, as well as the Qld sunshine coast, and has tours in the pipeline for Victoria and Southern NSW next year.
