With the Thunderbirds, everybody in the band has to cover a lot of bases musically. They’ve got to be able to play rock and roll. They’ve got to be able to play R&B and soul. They’ve got to be able to play blues. And they have to be able to do it in their own voice. With the Thunderbirds there is so much different Americana going on … and maybe a lot of different blending of music, as in Blues and R&B. – Kim
“Now when you say that you’re more of an R&B singer than you once were, was that intentional or was that kind of your natural evolution?”
Kim: Well, if I’m going to sing R&B songs, I’ve got to get a little more churchy.
