Kimberly Sunstrum + Kira Montfort
Kimberly Sunstrum is a heart-stopping performer. Her song writing is deep, evocative, and powerful and her music delightfully impossible to pin down. It’s an inspired blend of the grooves she listened to growing up in Sub-Saharan Africa and Canada. She strings together sounds from South African pop hits, classic R&B, old-time country and 70’s Motown power bops and spins them all in to her own unique melodies.

She writes about the world as she sees it with a powerful poetry and grace. Mixed-race identity, feminism, love, family, and queerness are reflections of her life and constant themes in her songs.
Accompanied by Kira Montfort, one of the most versatile and hard-working drummers in Ottawa, Kira and Kimberly are the founding members of Ottawa acoustic soul group, Sunstrum + The Wilds. Montfort and Sunstrum are set to put on an enigmatic and passionate duo performance at the 2019 DIY Spring Festival.
Sunstrum released her latest single, Confessions in August 2018. It’s a follow-up from her 2017 self produced album The Kid, The Wall, and The Box and the title single to her upcoming album.
Look out for new music from Sunstrum in 2019.
