Kim Arrington first sang publicly when she was just 4 years old. By 7 years old, she was writing her own songs. Arrington has been described by the Indy Week as ”a singer boasting an appropriately smooth and sultry voice…[Kim Arrington’s songwriting] relishes turns of phrase and unexpected details, subtle character development and sung dialog.” In 2012, Arrington was the recipient of North Carolina Central University’s 40 Under 40 Award for excellence in the arts. Arrington has two CDs already under her belt and is hard at work on her third CD, Make Your Luck.
