Kim Rocker
A Syracuse University graduate who graduated with a BFA in musical theatre, she learned the art of performance and reaching her audience through her singing early on.
She started singing at age 5 and never looked back.
Being trained by vocal instructors since she was 12 and learning how to sing in Italian, French and German, she participated in NYSSMA. 

 

She decided long ago that her heart was in rock n roll, blues and country music. She has been with Playin With Fire Band since 2007 as the lead singer, guitarist and songwriter. She has written 2 of the songs on PWFB Closer Than We Know album and has a few more in the works! “Best moment was when we pulled up to  our gig and the radio station WEXT was playing my song on the radio!!!! Wow!!!!”

Her vibrant performances and engagement with the audience guarantee an incredible show!!!!


At 21 years old she quit singing after her friends were killed on Pan Am 103. It took 10 years until the realization that her friend Nicole would have WANTED her to use her talents. So Kim started singing again at local coffee shops and open mics, just her and her guitar. She moved forward and always remembers that her singing honors them. “I remember them and act forward in their memory.”

 

“I am in awe of the talent around me onstage and that I have been allowed to be such an integral part of this amazing band! Our studio work and outside projects are also such an honor and let me know that I am perhaps doing something right .”

 

In her spare time she loves to hike, travel, kayak, play with her pups, spend time with family and friends and train in martial arts with her husband Dean.
