Kym Pitman has a special place amongst Australian singer songwriters. Her songs and music are deeply an expression of place and ecological connection. They inspire an enlivened sense of presence and emotional recognition of human experience and wild landscape -"a uniquely female, Australian perspective brimming with heart, spirit, experience and a love of country".
Born in South Australia, Kym began performing as a singer songwriter in Adelaide’s Music bars and Cafes as a teenager in the late seventies and early eighties. Later moving to regional NSW she has recorded three albums and performed extensively on Australia’s festival circuit. As a multi instrumentalist playing guitar, fiddle, viola and banjo, Kym’s enchanting concerts are a poignant journey rambling evocatively between coast, desert, gorge and tableland. She inspires hope and leaves her audiences moved and uplifted.
In her home town of Bellingen, Kym is founder the Bellingen Wilderness Youth Theatre - a unique rite of passage for young people, integrating wilderness treks with theatre and music to help teenagers develop a sense of place and belonging. This work is also a great source of musical and lyrical inspiration.
Kym also plays with Trunk Road
