Kym Simon has paved her own unique path in the Canadian Country Music scene as an award-winning Recording Artist and Singer/Songwriter. She remains undeniably down to earth as a devoted wife, mother of two, dedicated music teacher, and businesswoman.
Kym has three successful albums to date (“Mirror”, “Priority”, and “If You Stole My Heart”) followed by two singles (“You Got This” and “Heroes”).
The first of three new singles, “Lonely Together” is available on October 2, 2020. All singles were produced by CCMA Hall of Honour Inductee Travis Switzer (Dallas Smith & Megan Patrick) and mixed by Juno© and CCMA© Award winner, Bart McKay.
Kym co-wrote “Lonely Together” with Ryan Balanecki. She describes it as “A song that definitely will fit the times we are living in now, where relationships have been tested and you never know where things will end up”.
Some of Canada’s top musicians contributed to these songs. Darren Savard (Electric Guitar), Mitch Jay (Steel Guitar/Dobro), Mathew Atkins (Drums), Chad Melchert (Drums), Kris Ulrich (Acoustic Guitar/BV’s), Ryan Davidson (Electric Guitar), and Robin Pelletier (Acoustic Guitar), to name a few.
Covid-19 literally stopping the way we record music. It’s amazing how all of these talented people came together virtually (no an easy task), to make this song a reality. The hub of the recording started in St. Albert, AB and spread across Canada to musicians from coast to coast, sending tracks back and forth. It all come together with the final product being more than Kym could have anticipated.
Kym has creatively found a way to realize two dreams despite Covid-19 lockdown measures. Kym’s dreamt of being a talk show host (like her idol Oprah Winfrey, whom she met in 2013). She also wanted to expand her fanbase beyond the Canadian borders.
Every Monday at 7:30pm MST she brings both dreams to life with “Kym’s Korner” on Facebook.
She’s been steadily growing her viewers and currently gets tens of thousands of views worldwide. With different themes, customized set lists, and the odd celebrity special guest, each week is unique and entertaining!
