Born and raised in Rhode Island, Kim Petrarca is a singer-songwriter based out of Nashville. She was involved in the local New England music scene for over ten years, and has recently released her second album in Music City.
Her first EP, “Leave It Where It Lies,” was recorded by former SR-71 guitarist, Mark Beauchemin, and mastered by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, Grace Potter, Ray LaMontagne). Her sophomore release, “Dead Before the War,” was released in Fall of 2017, and was recorded in Nashville by Daniel Dennis at Prime Cut Studios.
“Maybe,” co-written with Brandan James, is the first single off “Dead Before the War.” The music video for this track was filmed in Tennessee by Jordan Miller.
Kim’s style of indie-folk-rock is not only lyrically driven, but honest and simple, making her songs relatable to any listener. Some of her influences include Bob Dylan, Carole King, Griffin House, and Tristan Prettyman. Kim plays regularly in Nashville, and has a short run booked in New England this Spring.
