Kim Yarbrough has a "voice as sultry and haunting as a Southern Summer." Starting at a young age, Kim was trained as a singer, actor, dancer, and instrumentalist making her a quadruple threat. She is classically trained and sings in every style--Broadway, Blues, Rock, R&B, Jazz--you name it and she can sing it.
Ever since her appearance on Season 2 of NBC's "THE VOICE,"the world knows just how gifted Kim Yarbrough truly is. Her voice has been compared to that of Aretha Franklin and "Jennifer Hudson meets Chaka Khan." Adam Levine of Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera consistently pronounced that Kim is "A force to be reckoned with."
After her appearance on "THE VOICE", Kim was interviewed on the"TODAY" Show with Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda and Al Roker. That same evening she sang with "The Roots" on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon".
When she's not teaching at Knauer Pianos, Kim has made appearances as an actress and singer in commercials, films, and TV smash hits such as "The Mindy Project", "The Soul Man", "Jane the Virgin" "New Girl", "HOT in CLEVLAND", "BONES", "2 Broke Girls", "Dexter", "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", and is a regular comedy sketch character on the "CONAN"show.
Kim Yarbrough not only sings and acts, she has also been a producer since the age of six and a violinist since the age of seven. As a child, Kim encountered several opportunities to perform violin as a professional. One of the highlights of her instrumental career was playing for the Vice-President of the United States as a violinist in the Kenny Loggins TNN television special, "December" with noted violinist Karen Briggs.
To add to her extensive list of talents, Kim has made her own films and written her own original R&B, Gospel, and Jazz songs. She has released three CDs, two singles: "Nice and Slow" and "Brand New Day," and an EP of inspirational songs entitled "Dharma 888." Kim is releasing her newest EP this summer, entitled "Champagne & Grits."
