“Kimwei was featured in three episodes of Guitar Star series 1 in 2015 (Sky Arts UK). She is an inventive and expressive guitar player, using every available part of the guitar in her compositions.
At 26 she began lecturing on a BA through Wolverhampton University/AMS, mentoring composition/songwriting/percussive guitar students and teaching film music. She has written percussive guitar materials for BTEC and songwriting materials for Foundation Degree. As a singer-songwriter she has self-released two albums. The most recent, ‘Refraction & Redemption’ is haunting and delicate, with a strong core of hope, to bring light to dark themes.”
