“The first thing that struck me about Kim, apart from his rich baritone voice, was his authenticity… this man means everything he writes and sings – I believe every single word” – Award-winning singer-songwriter Lachlan Bryan.
Queensland singer-songwriter Kim Wright aims to continue the sound of country pioneers including George Jones, Merle Haggard and George Strait in his music. “I want to bring back the honky tonk because I love that style of country and that’s what I aspire to do with my own music,” he said.
The married father of two names his family as being his biggest musical inspirations and it is this family-focused style of music that has won him plenty of fans. “I’m inspired by life and stories people tell me, but most of all I’m a family man.”
Kim gives his fans a variety of traditional country music, from George Strait to Alan Jackson. Thrown in his originals and you have a show not to be missed. The family focused style of Kim’s singing is guaranteed to have the whole family singing and dancing along with him. A natural born story teller, Kim expresses himself through his music which relates to the working class man.
Kim’s biggest musical highlights so far have been performing at the 2018 Tamworth Country Music Festival Official Opening Concert and as a semi-finalist in the 2018 Gympie Muster talent search. The country artist is also a regular guest on Brisbane’s 98.6fm with brekky show hosts, Jamie Dunn and Clay Cassar-Daley.
In May 2018, Kim released his debut single, Man of the House, about his young son, his second single, This Old Bar, was released in March 2019, debuting at No. 10 on the iTunes Country Songs Chart and his EP, Livin’ The Dream, was released in July 2019, debuting at No.2 on iTunes.
Kim is now looking forward to take his music to new audiences.
Kasey Michelle & Morgan
When you think of great songwriting duos you probably think of Ike and Tina Turner, Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson, Alecia Moore and Dallas Green. You can now add Kasey-Michelle and Morgan to that list. Especially if you value melody, harmonies, artful songwriting and honesty in your music.
Separately, Kasey-Michelle has been heralded as creating “solidly built, catchy country pop” (Real Gone) and Morgan is “…able to bring emotion and melody easily into his personal confessions” (The Ripple Effect). Bringing these forces together was not only a brilliant move, it just had to happen.
They met through music projects and got to know each other through a shared passion for nice guitars and vinyl records. Fast forward a few years; hundreds, if not thousands of hours of performing together, they are embarking on their first official duo project. Writing songs in the suburb of North Ipswich based around their voices, life experiences and observations, produced and recorded independently in their own Canning St Studios on their label, Three Figs.
Separately their music has been played on national and international radio and podcasts and have performed all over Australia, America and Japan. Together, who knows where they can end up?
Ally & Sarah
Ipswich musical sisters Ally & Sarah are bringing their stunning harmonies and warm stage presence to share on the Studio 188 stage. The two have been in numerous bands together and have been performing together as an acoustic duo for over 14 years.
Unbranded are an exciting new family trio hitting a stage near you.
