“Kim Horn is smooth, debonair and a throw back to a time when singers were singers.”  Press Enterprise

"Kim is an accomplished musician and singer who's smooth, romantic style sets the standard for Jazz music.”  Temecula’s Got Talent

Kim Horn’s smooth, romantic style sets the standard for Jazz music. His style is reminiscent of Jazz and Big Band singers of old, such as Billy Ekstine, Nat King Cole, Joe Williams, Arthur Prysock, Lou Rawls, and Johnny Hartman.

Kim Horn, jazz singer, began his love for music at an early age. “Since the age of two years old, singing was in my blood.”  His father was an accomplished Big Band singer who many thought sounded like the great Billy Eckstine.  “Growing up listening to him was truly a pleasure.”  

At thirteen, Kim became the front man of a rock band.  He learned how to entertain people through his voice.   By the age of 18, Kim was working with future greats in the industry like Lars Ulrich of Metallica.  At 20 years of age, he had many opportunities to go very far in the industry with several bands however, he took another road and married his high school sweetheart and soon after his wife became pregnant with their first child.  So wanting to be the responsible father and wanting to spend quality time with his children, he chose another way to make a living in town instead of touring.  It was during that time he lost his best friend and favorite singer, his father David Horn and it was then that Kim decided to do his father’s style of music, the greatest music in the world, Jazz.  After raising his son’s, Kim decided to get back into his passion, singing Jazz.

Through his music Kim has had the privilege of working with some of the greatest artists to date such as Wilton Felder, Peter White, Paul Brown, Mindi Abair, Jeff Kashiwa, Freddie Ravel, and Michael O’Neil to name a few. 

During one of Kim’s concerts Kim had the privilege of meeting one the legends of Jazz, Herb Jefferies who was in the audience. Mr. Jefferies made a gesture to Kim as if to hand him a torch and asked Kim to “keep the sounds of classic Jazz alive”.  So Kim has decided to make it his mission to regain that sound of the great singers of yesterday. 

Come out and enjoy the classic sounds of this music written by some of the greatest composers in the world.
