A B O U T
Kimmy June was born in 1994 in Waalwijk as Kim van der Gouw. When she was four, she discovered Ilse DeLange's first album "World of Hurt". From that moment on, her love for country music and singing and playing country songs was a fait accompli. The girl and guitar were inseparable. At the age of twelve, Kim emigrated with her parents to Austria and lived there for seven years. In Austria she developed herself further as a guitarist, and a series of self composed songs quickly followed. At the age of seventeen, she participated in the German talent show "Deutschland sucht den Superstar" and moved the jury to tears. Kimmy June's songs have a sound and phrasing that seamlessly matches the sound we know from Nashville with a unique Kimmy June scent to it.
In 2013, she moved back to the Netherlands and after pursing a degree in education, she started working as a German teacher while developing herself further as a composer and singer. Kimmy June breathes music and it'll always be the main goal in her life.
Fall 2019, she had the privilege of opening for the Dutch band "The BlueBirds" In Parasido Noord.
Next to spending her days creating music, Kimmy June performs at various events such as weddings, dinners and festivals throughout the year.
Kimmy June's songs are inspired by artist like Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton, Ilse DeLange and The Chicks.
On September 4th, Kimmy June released her first single "Mellow Lark".
