Simple Folk Radio's Holiday Hootenanny - Starring KIMYA DAWSON
Kimya Dawson is a Grammy winning, platinum selling singer songwriter most widely known for her work on the JUNO soundtrack & her former band, The Moldy Peaches.
"Warm, personable, & often erring on charmingly twee, Kimya Dawson’s music has always communicated with her fans via revealing and heartfelt lyrics... topics such as body image, depression & child abuse made their way on to Dawson’s last solo album… With Dawson, the focus is on the lyrics, with her music tending to serve as a mere platform for sprawling, humorous stories whose serious subject matter contradicts the childlike catchiness underpinning them" – Mia Lily Clarke/Pitchfork
