Kimmi Bitter may consider herself an artist born in the wrong era. Struggling to connect with the modern top 40 hits, she drowned herself in the various genres of the ’50s through ’70s analog era and took a plunge into the roots revival scene. In 2019, she debuted two EPs “West Side Twang” and “Take Me Back”. Within the first year of taking a niche to country music she was nominated in her hometown for San Diego Music Awards best country/Americana artist of 2020.
A strong believer in minimalism and retro-technology, her recordings are about the tape hiss, human vocal pads taking place over a modern synth, tracking the innate energy of a live band and the imperfections that our perfectly produced music society lacks. She states “Music is a tool for making human connection and people are hungry for it. A connection that thrives through empathy, vulnerability, authenticity, truth, flaws — and my songwriting is a vision directed towards that.”
