YOUNG BLUES- BELTIN’ DIVA THAT IS OFTEN COMPARED TO LOU ANN BARTON & SUSAN TEDESHI.
INTERNATIONAL BLUES MAGAZINE BLUES REVUE SAYS “…SHE POSSESSES THE KIND OF HARNESSED ELECTRICITY THAT WOULD BLOW THE DOORS DOWN IN A PACKED BLUES JOINT ON A SATURDAY NIGHT.”, WHILE LIVING BLUES STATED “WITH CAREFUL PHRASING AND A GRITTY EDGE, KIM LEMBO’S VOICE IS A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH.”
Along with her band Blue Heat, blues vocalist Kim Lembo recorded several albums for Blue Wave beginning in 1994. The Syracuse, NY-based vocalist worked with multi-instrumentalist/producer Mark Doyle for her debut album, which she named after her band.
Two years later, she again worked with Doyle for her follow-up, Mama Lion. During this time in the mid-'90s, Lembo built a sizable following in New York state, where she continued to perform on a regular basis and win much acclaim. By the time Blue Wave released her third album, Ready to Ride (1999), she'd built quite a following.
This growing audience resulted in an opportunity to perform a series of shows in Paris during January 2000 at the Chesterfield Cafe. These shows were later compiled on the Paris Burning album released later that year. © Jason Birchmeier, allmusic.com
