Kim Of All She Surveys
As Katie Kim prepared for her recent Kilkenny Arts Festival performace, she told Celina Murphy why 2012 has been her busiest year yet.
Celina Murphy, 23 Aug 2012
Kilkenny appearance wrapped up, it’s off to Perpignan to record the third Katie Kim album, with filmmaker Neil O’Driscoll in tow to capture the whole process for a documentary. Sounds like a fierce competitor for Katy Perry’s Part Of Me in 3D...
“I don’t know if it’s going to be that detailed,” Kim laughs. “It’s not going to be Behind The Music or anything. It’s going to be more about the visual aesthetic. Hopefully we’ll have fun doing it and we’ll be able to make things look beautiful.”
After that, we’ll be adding Kim to the list of artists lost to slightly-less-green pastures; yup, the Dublin resident is plotting a move to New York sometime in the next two years.
“Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be a musician and move to New York, that was my whole thing,” she confesses. “It’s historically an amazing place for arts and music. I’m hitting 30 soon so I feel I’m getting a bit long in the tooth for moving away and starting a new life!”
