KIM RICHARDSON

Kim Richardson started her career at a very young age, first as an actress and a dancer in the theaters in the Toronto area. During her early teenage years, she performed as a singer in bars, needing her mom’s permission, since she wasn’t of legal age. In 1986, she won her first Juno for “Most Promising Female Vocalist of the Year”, with her first single “He’s my lover”. The next year, she struck back with a second win, for her second single “Peek-a-boo” getting the Juno for “Best R&B/Soul Recording”. She then got her third Juno in 1994, for “Best Contemporary Jazz Album”, with the group The Merlin Factor.

 Throughout the years, Kim has accompanied such artists as Celine Dion, Corey Hart, Gregory Charles, Dan Bigras, Isabelle Boulay, Diane Dufresne, Lara Fabian, Garou, Murray Head, Éric Lapointe, Ginette Reno, Barry White, Stevie Wonder, Robert Palmer, Bruno Pelletier, Roch Voisine, Nanette Workman, just to name a few.

We regularly saw her on television in shows like Beau et Chaud, Belle et Bum, Le Plaisir croît avec l’usage, Le Poing J, Chabada, Célébrations, Ti-Mé show, Prière de ne pas envoyer de fleurs, Le Choc des générations, La Cours des Grands, and more.

 On stage, Kim participated in several shows celebrating La Fête Nationale du Québec as well as Canada Day, Show du Refuge, and other major music festivals and events across Canada. We also saw her perform with Gregory Charles in his shows Musicman and Vintage, the last one being presented in New York City for the whole month of April 2015. In 1990, she sang for Nelson Mandela, during a commemorative event given in his honour in Montreal.

 As an actress, she played in « Ain’t Misbehavin » in 2013 at Segal Centre, and in « Hairspray » the same year, produced by Festival Juste pour rire. She also got a role in the movie « Funkytown » released in 2011 and voiced the French version of « Chicago », « Lion King » and « James and the Giant Peach ». She was also heard in a multitude of TV and radio commercials, in French and in English, for multinational companies, as a singer or voiceover artist.

 In 2006, she released a solo album, « Kaleidoscope », and a second one in 2011 called « Mes amours ».

 Recently, she’s been on tour across Quebec, with « American Story Show ». We can regularly see her perform at Dièse Onze in a jazz trio format and Le Balcon, with her funky, soulful quartet.
