Dutch jazzvocalist Kim Hoorweg (24) has adopted New York City as her second home. She is known for her clever originals, her clear, warm and pleasant timbre and charming way of reinterpreting old forgotten songs.
She worked with top-notch musicians Trijntje Oosterhuis, Gino Vannelli, Candy Dulfer, Chance Howard (Prince) and Benjamin Herman. Signed with American record label Verve when she was only 14, frequently on Dutch television, performed twice at the North Sea Jazz Festival, worked with the famous Metropole Orchestra and was nominated for the most prestigious Dutch Music Award: the Edison.
Now she is releasing a brand-new record with originals written by her and Raul Midón (collaborated with Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock and many more), widely known as an amazing songwriter, skilled vocalist and guitar virtuoso. On her new album she's accompanied by the creme de la creme of the Dutch jazzscene: Anton Goudsmit, Niels Broos, Glenn Gaddum Jr. and Joost Kroon. She describes it as indie-jazz with a synth-touch. Also, the lady produced the record herself, did the artwork for the album and is releasing it on her own label.
