Kim Meeks counts Al Green, Marvin Gaye, and the Bee Gees among her influences. Her biggest influence, though, is Hall & Oates. One of her goals in life is to perform on “Live from Daryl’s House,” which is a web series people watch online featuring the soulful vocal stylings of Daryl Hall from Hall & Oates.
Right now, Meeks calls Macon, Georgia home. It’s where her song, “Sleeping With The Past,” ended up on the Macon Music CD. She enjoys living there and says, “Macon definitely supports artists. The music scene in Macon is growing.”
Besides performing around Macon, Meeks has recently toured the South and the East, with Washington, D.C., being among the memorable stops along the way. On tour, Meeks usually plays piano while singing solo, though she sometimes has a band, like the time she performed at Blues Boulevard Jazz in Greenville, South Carolina.
While national recognition “would be awesome,” she’d mostly like to make a living playing music. If her songs were featured in TV shows and movies, that’d be a bonus.
With her new CD, Meeks titled it Forget Me Not. The title track on the CD speaks to betrayal. “The victim ultimately sees the villain for who he/she is,” she says. Her music, ultimately, has a deep sense of longing, which is “something I believe listeners can relate to.”
Kim Meeks doesn’t like to reveal too much about herself, preferring to let the music speak for her.
One listener told her that “Sleeping With The Past” helped get him through a difficult time and that really touched her.
“I want to move people with my music, and that’s what inspires me to continue on this journey,” she says.
