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 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 October of 2017, and was recorded in Nashville by Daniel Dennis at Prime Cut Studios.
Kim’s style of acoustic-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 you can view her schedule under the "shows" tab or visit her Facebook page for news and updates.
"... lovely, talented, and, dare I say it, vivacious... Kim is an emerging star in the Music City firmament that can play, sing, and write songs which run the gamut of emotional awareness, from warming the cockles of calloused hearts, to putting the boogie back in the woogie... We love her music and you will, too! "- Janet & Charles Cox, hosts of Writer's Night at Bobby's Idle Hour on Music Row in Nashville
