Singer, Songwriter Kate Klim to Perform
Pianist-singer-songwriter Kate Klim will be the headlining performer at the next LSU Eunice Performing Arts event on November 7 at 6:30 p.m. in the campus' Health Technology Building auditorium.
Tickets for the event are free to LSU Eunice students and children under 12, and $4 for general admission. As always, tickets are available at the door.
Producer Crit Harmon, who has worked with singers like Martin Sexton, Lori McKenna and Mary Gauthier, called Klim the next Carole King.
"There I said it," said Harmon. "Not just because she writes and performs her songs on the piano, but because her songs show wisdom beyond their years, drawing on experiences from her personal life, but expanding those lessons to include a broader view on the meaning of relationships and people in our lives."
Klim has been recognized by some of the country's premier songwriting contests. She won the 2010 Kerrville New Folk competition, and was a finalist in the 2005 and 2006 Mountain Stage Newsong Contests, 2006 Mid-Atlantic Song Contest, 2007 Kerrville Newfolk Competition, and 2007 Solarfest Competition.
Her newest release, "Kamikaze Love" contains her strongest songs yet, including the two than won her the New Folk competition. Produced by friend, band mate and promising new producer Brian Packer, the album is a sign that Kate is no longer trying to conform to the folk community, but rather embracing the indie-pop songwriter she has always been. The product is an honest collection of songs that Kate considers her best work yet.
This event partially funded by the LSU Eunice Campus Activities Board.
