Kym calls the Red Deer area home, but her roots began in Stettler, on March 19, 1978. She was born into a musical family and followed the steps of her parents and Grandparents as they sang and played musical instruments for various community events. It was at her High School Graduation Ceremony, while she was playing solo, that she instinctively made her music career path. Before she knew it, she was performing and discovering that music was an entire way of life.
Kym has always believed that performing is only one aspect of the music industry, which brought forward a determination to learn more about the business side of her passion. She founded Prairie Platinum Music Inc. in 1999 with her manager Alan James.
It was in August of 1999, when Kym headed for Nashville, TN, where she had the good fortune of meeting Ed Russell from Castle Records, who became the producer of her first album ?If You Stole My Heart?. It was that very song which topped the charts shortly after it was released.
On March 23, 2007 Kym Simon released her second album ?Priority?. You?ll be sure to hear the first two singles playing on Canadian Country Radio. Both songs, ?The Blame Game? & ?More About Me?, have charted. In conjunction with the album release she began her ?Light Your Fire Tour? promoting volunteer firefighters and a portion of the ticket proceeds going to Alberta Volunteer Fire Departments. The most recent honor was the song ?My Priority? which was featured as the exclusive song for the highly acclaimed ?World of Women Festival? in Central Alberta.
The energy Kym eludes on stage is nothing short of magnificent. Her audiences are always the ?priority?, and whether it is bringing fans up to join her on stage or walking into the crowd so everyone can dance and sing along together, that?s what makes Kym?s music dreams become a reality.
