Kimberly Sunstrum

Kimberly Sunstrum is a queer, Afro-Canadian neo-soul, folk artist who blends profound vocals with heartfelt lyrics to paint stories that delve into her multidimensional identities. Growing up in 8 different countries, primarily in sub-saharan Africa, has resulted in song writing that is an eclectic journey through genres and style. From classic R&B to south african pop, country to motown Sunstrum spins them all together with her deep, evocative and powerful writing.

She writes about the world as she sees it with a powerful poetry and grace. Mixed-race identity, feminism, love, and, family are reflections of her life and constant themes in her songs.
