Equipped with beautiful storytelling and an enchanting voice, NYC-based singer-songwriter Kathy Zimmer blurs the lines between folk and pop music, showcasing her style of music which she describes as "cosmopolitan folk."
Kathy Zimmer has released several recorded collections of her music, most recently a vinyl record in 2019 combining two EPs, White Noise and Sparkling Smile, and a separate single, a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” (all of which are available on all streaming platforms). A resident of New York City, Kathy Zimmer is a native of rural Nebraska. Her original love of acoustic guitars and tight vocal harmonies was the product of being raised in a large musical family. In school, Zimmer studied classical music, her education culminating in a master's degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music. Zimmer's roots and musical explorations have led her to create music she terms "cosmopolitan folk"--music that is sophisticated, sincere, smart and accessible with a variety of identifiable influences including country music, 1960s girl groups and classic and current pop singer-songwriters (think Phoebe Bridgers, Kacey Musgraves...) However, ultimately, Kathy Zimmer strives to make something new.
Rock n’ Reel Magazine has declared her the “latter day Joan Baez.” The Roots Music Report proclaims, “At various turns enchanting, haunting and soothing—and at times a bit of all of these—Ms. Zimmer’s sophisticated song crafting never fails to charm.”
