Kim Settle is simply a country girl at heart. Her family came to Australia from the USA when she was just 2 years old and settled in Cairns, Far North Queensland.
Kim’s formative years were spent living on a citrus orchard, riding horses, going to the beach and sitting around a camp fire singing songs. Time spent with her Dad playing table tennis, led to Kim becoming so good at the game that she was ranked in the top 10 players in Australia.
Kim also spent many years as a Physical Education teacher but ongoing health problems forced her to reassess her lifestyle. She had always sung as a hobby but through her illness discovered songwriting as a form of therapy.
Kim has always enjoyed performing songs of different genres, from country rock, pop rock, to rock and roll and rockabilly. However, as her uncle Johnny Erdelyan was a producer at one of the biggest recording studios in the World - Acuff Rose and Hickory Records ( which was owned by his brother in-law Wesley Rose along with Roy Acuff), she has been greatly inspired and influenced by artists like Hank Williams, Roy Orbison and The Everly Brothers.
Kim has performed in many venues across the country and also worked the country music circuit in Queensland and NSW, including major Festivals like Tamworth and Charters Towers, winning and placing in numerous Talent Quests.
Kim has finally released her first EP titled 'Rock'n Sweet Country' which contains three original songs and two classic covers. The EP was recorded at Pegasus Studios in Cairns and produced by Nigel Pegrum (who also appears on drums). Kim was thrilled to be able to round up the cream of Cairns musicians to play on the EP including Gordon Sheard (guitar and bass), Simon McMenamin (violin) Steve Gilbert (Harmonica) and Libby Brockenshire (backing vocal).
