Kim Treiber (guitar, vocals; songwriter): Kim says, 'My mom force fed old country (we're talkin' Loretta, Cash, Waylon, Willie and the boys) to me at an early age, and I rebelled, first playing bass in an 80s rock band, 'The Bohiems', later becoming a folkie, still leaning in the rock genre, but mostly writing totured love songs and political/social stuff in the band 'Burning Joan.' For giggles, in 2003 I recorded a bastardized version of 'Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain' for my mom's birthday, and it all took off from there. I realized my roots had caught up to me and I liked it. We recordered the CD Blue Hearted Girl at Howlin' Dog Studios in Alamosa, Co. and in Nashville. I live in Taos, New Mexico with my children; work with homeless youth at the DreamTree Project garden ride my horse, Nugget, up in the mountains (just like the song says) and sing big 'ol twangy country every chance I get.'
