While Adele may be a worldwide superstar with the allure of haunting tones and electrifying performances, I know someone who can do it as good — and dare I say it — maybe even better.
Kymar Garner, a singer that has been known and respected for her atmosphere-shaking presence and demure character, has launched out as an artist. Many have enjoyed her amazing artistry for years, but I am so glad she waited on the right timing and the Lord’s leading with this release. With her husband’s expert orchestration (Troy Garner – master musician & producer) and stellar management (Ayers Entertainment), she has released her new single, “King“.
Kymar’s delivery has rich, deep soulful tones. Her voice is clear and precise from every end of the spectrum. Her range is solid and dynamic. In one song, Kymar Garner shows us that she can stand toe-to-toe with any modern female singer. I am easily picking up hints of Jazmine Sullivan, Fantasia and Adele. Two minutes into the song, I am reminded of why I enjoy Kymar’s live performances so much. She carefully calculate every move yet she is never sterile or disconnected from the listener. She doesn’t just sing the song, she creates an experience.
The premise of the song is to remind and inform people of God’s power and authority and she does just that. She opens up and delivers powerfully, declaring God as King and after laying a descriptive foundation, she raises her voice like a trumpet and gives the listener even more to enjoy.
“King” – Kymar Garner
I almost hate that the song “King” is available free on Soundcloud. I would have paid for it and it is certainly worth the money. The end result is a song on par with anything that her secular contemporaries could produce. Kymar had released a song before now called “Without You“. Like the current song, it is well worth the listen. The song is like a time capsule and shows what an early Kymar Garner sounded like. Whew! She was amazing then, and even more so now.
Kymar is respected as one of her hometown’s premier singers. Now with this new single, she is poised to be hailed as one of the best singers of the modern era. Something that I considered her to be long before now. I also consider Kymar Garner as an Artist You Should Know.
Here is Kymar returning to her New Direction roots singing a song from the 2009 “Destiny” project called “Start All Over Again“. Enjoy.
