    Anderson Fair presents Kimberly M'Carver.

    Born in Dallas, Texas and raised in Mesquite, Kimberly's been singing and dancing since childhood. She studied as a music (opera/voice) major in Dallas and UT Austin, and danced professionally with a dance troupe in Dallas. During college she became more interested in writing music than performing classical prior works. Moving to Houston (after living in Dallas & Austin), Kimberly sang with the Houston Symphony Chorale and fronted top 40 bands. It was during this period that she started writing songs and playing songwriter open mike nights.

    This led to a homemade tape of her songs which was sent to Rounder Records. Rounder liked'em and came to Houston to see a live performance and offered a recording contract that very same evening.

    Kimberly's two Rounder releases, Breathe the Moonlight and Inherited Road, (containing only original songs) drew great reviews, nominations (Best Independent Record, CA) & charted on the Americana chart. She's been nominated by the Houston Press Music Awards for Songwriter of the Year 2001 & Best Acoustic/Folk from 1992-1998, as well as Public News critic's pick for Best Female Vocalist.

    Her third cd, Cross the Danger Line contains seven of her original songs along with Greg Trooper's Ireland, Townes Van Zandt's Niles River Blues, & the classic Return to Me. It includes an amazing group of musicians including Aubrey Haynie (Faith Hill), Viktor Krauss (Lyle Lovett), Scott Neubert (Hal Ketchum,Trace Adkins), & harmonies by grammy-winning singer-songwriters Jim Lauderdale and Claire Lynch.

    "... a sitting-on-the-beach-house-porch-in-a-breezy-sunset ambience ... M’Carver’s voice covers the same full-throated range that Emmylou Harris’s does, but has a sweeter, more - dare we say it - "dulcet" tone. -. John Nova Lomax, Houston Press
