According to The Boston Herald, Seattle songwriter Kym Tuvim "is a rarity in modern folk-pop: a...singer-songwriter truly in touch with the roots of American music." The daughter of a pianist and granddaughter of a big band leader, it's safe to say that music was like breathing in Tuvim's childhood home. Growing up in central, suburban California, she was playing piano, guitar and writing songs at an early age. When it came time to go to college, she chose Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, where she studied Jazz piano and composition. She's been based in the Northwest ever since. Touring part-time since 2003, Tuvim has cultivated a national following playing in listening rooms, living rooms, and festivals across the country. She has three albums to her name, all of which have been critically praised by fans and critics alike, including Acoustic Guitar and The Performing Songwriter Magazines. Her seasoned guitar work borrows from folk, pop, jazz and blues, seamlessly blending genres with an intricate and deep groove, while her songwriting delivers lyrics that are truthful, smart and emotionally vulnerable. Of Tuvim's live show, About.com said, "Seattle singer-songwriter Kym Tuvim can sing...A remarkable performer, she didn't bounce all over the place or boogie behind her guitar, and she didn't need to. Her songs were thoughtful, provocative, and relatable. Her voice was solid, strong, and soaking with soul." Tuvim has shared the stage with Susan Werner, Girlyman & Kris Delmhorst, among others, and in 2005, she was voted back for the 2006 'Most Wanted Tour' by the audience at The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, one of the largest folk festivals in the U.S., held every summer in the Berkshires in New York State.
