Kim likes to have her way with words. She releases them with a voice of heart-rending dynamics and range — lyrics that rise and fall with jazzy lure and troubadour candor.

Gulf Coast born and West Texas raised, Kim writes songs brimming with emotion and sense of place. She writes anthems to beauty and lamentations for things lost; she sings of our universal scrapes, triumphs, and desires.

Though Kim performs intermittently, “the wait is well worth it” said the late American music journalist Margaret Moser, of Kim’s performance interludes. “If you can catch her live, you should” says songwriter Willis Alan Ramsey.

Kim is working on a collection of songs she's tentatively titled “Pleasure of My Yearning”, promising further meditations on favorite themes of risk, natural wonders, and explorations of the heart. In the meantime, Kim can be found singing in the hills and stages of her beloved Texas Hill Country.

“Miller takes listeners on a tantalizing journey” — Tom Buckley, Editor of Texas Music magazine

PLEASURE OF MY YEARNING

I’m hummin’ down the highway

West with the night

On a poet’s mission

A search and recovery

Expedition

The open road

Is my prescription

Far-flung territory

Suits a soul

In this condition

How many times this leap of faith

To keep the fire in my belly burning

How much loneliness does it take

For the pleasure of my yearning

Sunrise in the Chisos

Welcomes me back

Drawn by wonder

To this land of snakes

And switchbacks

Standin' on a canyon rim

At the edge of a big-sky line

I close my eyes

Fill my lungs  

And sing for a sign   

How many times this leap of faith

To keep the fire in my belly burning

How much loneliness does it take

For the pleasure of my yearning

Feel the heartbeat in these the rocks

Of my pilgrim pit-stop

Hummin’ with power

Mountains that move you

Ready or not

The sky has further to fall here

Dreams more room to land

I come for the beauty

I come for the view

I come to understand

How many times this leap of faith

To keep the fire in my belly burning

How much loneliness does it take

For the pleasure of my yearning
