Kim Carnes (born July 20,1945 in Los Angeles, California) is an American singer-songwriter. She is noted for her distinctive, raspy voice which she attributes to many hours spent singing in smoky bars and clubs.

    Thanks to Blank & Jones for discovered Kim Carnes. B&J included 'Voyeur' in their 'So80s' compilation. She is a great singer. I like her feathery voice so much.

    Crazy in the night for me it's the best hit single from Kim. There are other cool hits like Invisible hands, voyeur, mistaken identity, it's not the spotlight and more love.

    When I find an album to be a 'masterpiece' and yet it doesn't do great commercially, I always put it down to tough competition at the time. I'll have to have a look at what albums came out at the same time, it's the only reason I can think of to explain why it didn't get what it deserved...

    @ezwriter: i almost want to agree with your assessment of kim's career woes. it makes sense on paper considering her eventual return to more rootsy instrumentation with 'view from the house' in '88. but i can not accept the notion that a woman simply "pursuing the wrong genre" could've crafted the synth pop masterpiece that is the 'voyeur' album. the very un-'bette davis eyes' dark atmosphere, songwriting and creativity on that album lead me to believe she knew exactly what she was doing. I'll never understand why it wasn't a success.
