Kim Mayo (music and video)

Kim Mayo, a conservatory-trained vocalist with an affinity for lush
orchestration, tender melodies, and surreal lyrics, has quietly
side-stepped onto the internet with the unveiling of her debut single,
“long slow love’s hum.” Mayo’s delicately crafted song is a perfect
amalgamation of her diverse influences, drawing upon elements of folk,
pop, jazz, and chamber music.  The result is a soaring representation
of her love of language and her skill for weaving her thoughtful
melodies between sublimely constructed arrangements that defy easy
categorization.  Mayo's and her (ten!) bandmates met while studying at
the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston.  They recorded a
collection of five of Mayo’s singles live at The Record Company in one
afternoon this past December.
