““Kimberlye has a way with words and music. Her songs are based as much on heart and soul as they are on rock & roll, folk, country and the blues. Her voice, pretty, strong and rocking, is equally adept at covering all those musical bases and more. Whether she’s singing vintage songs by Janis or Grace or gracing audiences with her own creations, she’s a fine, committed, and giving entertainer.”” - Ben Fong-Torres | author / journalist / radio / T.V. personality & former senior editor of Rolling Stone / documentary subject of LIKE A ROLLING STONE: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF BEN FONG-TORRES
Kimberlye Gold is a San Francisco Bay Area singer/songwriter who spent many years honing her skills living and working in the trenches of LA/NYC/Nashville, working with hitmakers from all those major music towns before returning to her roots. Her love for multiple genres of music spanning decades is on full display in her combo platter of pop/rock/R&B/country original and cover tunes. Gold's stable of top-notch players includes members of luminary bands such as Tower Of Power, Steely Dan, and Boz Scaggs, joining her on everything from duo gigs to headlining on main stages with her bands Kimberlye Gold's Rock'n'Soul All-Stars and The KGB Kimberlye Gold Band.
Gold is often compared to acclaimed singer/songwriters such as Grammy-winning and Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee artists Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, Brandi Carlile, Carole King, and Carly Simon. A recent moment in Kimberlye's career speaks to that of Bonnie Raitt and John Prine's relationship, as Kimberlye's cover of The Rascals' iconic song “How Can I Be Sure” has sparked a friendship with The Rascals founder and songwriter Felix Cavaliere, a supporter of the cover of his iconic song co-written with former Rascals member Eddie Brigati. Upon hearing it, Felix contacted Kimberlye and said, "This is one of my favorite songs, I enjoyed your performance very much! It's not an easy one to sing and you did it wonderfully. I want to wish you the very best of luck with your career and songwriting, and would love to have you as a guest at any upcoming Felix Cavaliere's Rascals show!"
After a long hiatus since her last album, Sycamore Street, she released an EP titled SOLILOQUY with stellar contributions from members of Tower Of Power, Pacific Mambo Orchestra, and more, produced by singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Jimmy Goings. It has already garnered her across-the-board rave reviews from renowned music publications/journalists such as Rolling Stone and others of being a “singer/songwriter of the finest tradition” and “an inventive musician and composer of melodies”.
