Fog City Blues: Kim Lembo

Photo: Philip Milic

From 1993 to 2001, Kim Lembo recorded four blues albums with her band Blue Heat. Her special blend of hard rocking blues, gospel and roots brought out a voice unique in its depth, universal in its world weariness.

After a long break working in the non-profit world, Lembo is coming back with a fury. Her voice, preserved in the break continues to evolve and reflects the depth of life and the world around us. She spent several years writing her fifth release, 45 Miles, which was released in 2016. Kim joins hosts Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 3/08 at 9 pm ahead of a St. Patrick's Day show at The Lost Church in San Francisco.
