SARAH FIMM will return to Back Stage Productions, 323 Wall St, Kingston at 8 p.m. on Tuesday and again on March 20 as part of month-long residency.
In her previous Kingston performance, she was joined by musical guests such as bassist Sara Lee and drummer Manuel Quintana. Additionally, other local bands such as Year On A Mountain and You Won’t also performed. The event raised funds and awareness for the International Justice Mission, a charity fighting to stop the spread of human trafficking and domestic violence.
During previous shows, Fimm displayed about a hundred of her paintings, which are all part of a movement she calls Inspire Art, which she hopes will celebrate the thriving Hudson Valley arts scene and inspire other like-minded artists to take up charitable causes.
This is just the beginning of a series of multimedia exhibitions at BSP which are continuing to raise funds for various charities while showcasing local artists and musicians. On Tuesday, Fimm will raise money for the MARK Project, which helps rebuild Hudson Valley communities in dire need of aid.
Fimm’s music is a dark, chaotic mixture of rock and pop with alternative influences. Her sound is colored with smooth, melodic rock fused with thick ethereal electronic grooves and haunting vocals. A prolific artist who draws influences as varied as Bach, Chopin, Leonard Cohen, Bjork, Tori Amos and Alice In Chains, she has independently released seven albums to date.
