About Kim Moberg
Kim Moberg was born in Juneau, Alaska, the daughter of a classical pianist mother
of Alaskan Native Tlingit descent and a US Coast Guard veteran father from Kansas.
Music was the constant in Kim's childhood, helping her to adjust to the frequent moves
associated with growing up in a military family.
At the age of 14, Kim began playing acoustic guitar on a borrowed nylon 6 string. A few years later, Kim taught herself to strum and finger pick to her favorite songs by singer/songwriters of the 1970’s, but debilitating stage fright kept her from pursuing
her own dream of becoming a professional performer.
In 2014, after a hiatus from music to raise her two daughters with her husband, Kim set out to overcome her stage fright and wrote her first song.
Kim's debut CD entitled "Above Ground,"celebrates the achievement of her goal to bring her music out of the basement. “Above Ground," produced by Grammy nominated producer Jon Evans, was released worldwide in September 2017.
Kim's passionate and heartfelt vocals mesmerize listeners while her compositions tug at feelings of melancholy, heartbreak, healing and social consciousness
