“Kim Moberg combines a lovely voice with a deep insight into the human experience.
Her songs evoke genuine emotional responses in the listener, as she carries on the acoustic folk tradition in the 21st century. ” 

— Nick Noble, host of THE FOLK REVIVAL, WICN (Worcester Public Radio)

Short Bio

Kim Moberg was born in Juneau, Alaska, the daughter of a classical pianist mother of Alaskan Native Tlingit descent and a US Coast Guard veteran father from Kansas. Music was the constant in Kim's childhood, helping her to adjust to the frequent moves associated with growing up in a military family. 

At the age of 14, Kim began playing acoustic guitar on a borrowed nylon 6 string. A few years later, Kim taught herself to strum and finger pick to her favorite songs by singer/songwriters of the 1970’s, but debilitating stage fright kept her from pursuing
her own dream of becoming a professional performer.

In 2014, after a hiatus from music to raise her two daughters with her husband, Kim set out to overcome her stage fright
and wrote her first song. 

Kim's debut CD entitled "Above Ground”, celebrates the achievement of her goal to bring her music out of the basement. 
“Above Ground”, produced by Grammy nominated
producer Jon Evans, was released worldwide in September 2017. 

Kim's passionate and heartfelt vocals mesmerize listeners 
while her compositions tug at feelings of
melancholy, heartbreak, healing and social consciousness.

Kim’s recent recognitions include:
* "Above Ground" peaked at #23, with 2 songs in the Top 20 Category, on the July and August 2018 Folk Alliance International Folk DJ Charts
Winner: 2018 Rose Garden Coffee House Performing Songwriter   Competition
2nd Place: Linden Tree Coffeehouse Winter Potpourri
2017 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) Suzi Wollenberg DJ Showcase performing artist, selected by WOMR’s Bob Weiser

Kim's performance resume includes sharing the stage with both contemporary and established artists: 
Opening for Folk music icon Jim Kweskin and Grace Morrison 
Co-bill concerts with Kirsten Maxwell
and the legendary Bill Staines.

I love the CD I received. I am playing a track this week

-Ron Olesko, Traditions WFDU

"Kim Moberg has created a project that features not only her lovely voice but a songwriting style that can easily transition from the gentle americana-tinged ballads to thoughtful protest songs.  "Above Ground" is well worth a listen!"  

-Joe Pszonek Radio Nowhere | Joltin Joe Pszonek Finnegan's Wake

"They say that music cures all ills and has a way of uplifting the soul
when it is down. The very first time I heard Kim Moberg at the
NERFA 2017 Suzi Wollenberg Folk DJ showcase, that very thought came
to mind. Kim has a way of uplifting the spirit when it's down and 
filling one's heart and mind  with hope. 
She is a fresh voice on the scene and definitely wows a crowd. 
The world is a much brighter place with Kim Moberg.   
Listen to Kim's music and you'll be smiling, too."  

-Jon Stein, Hootenanny Cafe, WTBQ Orange County, NY

"Be it instrumental or vocal, there's a haunting quality to  
Kim Moberg's music. Melancholic melodies and stories of separation and reunion are Moberg's songwriting staples, and mark her as an upcoming artist." 

-Joe Burns, Independent Reporter 

"We are starting off this introduction of Singer/Songwriter Kim Moberg with a song called “The Call” because it sets the tone of reaching beyond, both spiritually and individually, to face challenges that all dreams demand we rise to.​....The sweet sadness she sings is gentle and insistent as the incoming tide."  
-Colette O'Connor, Notes From Northeast,
New England Women Songwriters KZUM-FM
