Kim Wilson and the Blues Allstars are performing at 4:00 pm on November 22nd at Wilson’s in Ocean Beach, California! Buy tickets!
“Spending an hour chatting with Wilson, who brought the Fabulous Thunderbirds to life, is like sitting with a curator of an exotic museum. His admiration for the forefathers of the blues is clearly on his sleeve and you can’t stump his knowledge.”
Read the full interview with Kim in Glide Magazine.
“How have you changed as a singer over the years?”
I’ve changed as a singer in a lot of ways. I mean, basically I’ve just gotten better. Singing is a lifelong skill that you have to be a journeyman at for a long time. Some people have natural talent. I had a little bit of natural talent at it, but the people who I wanted to sing like were all the greatest singers ever. So, it’s still a work in progress.
But at least I can listen to stuff that I’ve recorded and I can like it now.
Mud Morganfield and Kim are releasing “For Pops (A Tribute to Muddy Waters)”.
“We began with an old-fashioned ‘house party’ in our studio,” recalled David Earl. “Attendees included friends and family from all over the mid-Atlantic region, who were treated to a wonderful performance by Mud and Kim, along with some barbeque and spirits.”

This just in: We are performing at the “From Austin With Love” benefit concert on Sunday, May 4th at the The Backyard Live Oak Amphitheatre in Bee Cave, Texas!
I think it’s a very diverse record. I think there’s a lot of bluesy stuff, but there is a lot of soul-y kind of R&B. It’s really more Americana. I’m not really a dyed-in-the-wool soul singer, but people seem to think I am on this one. I am just singing along with the tracks and doing it in my own way. — Kim
