Dive into KIMBERLY & THE DREAMTIME’s latest sound waves—a lush, liquid landscape of dreams and desires that leaves listeners tipsy on rhythm and rhyme. Montreal-based singer-songwriter Kimberly Bourgeois' second release, HEART WAVE, was launched in Montreal on November 9, 2016, and in Ottawa on November 19, 2016.
Letting out a howl, HEART WAVE rises like a transformative tide while themes of 'holding on' topple exquisitely into those of 'moving on,' rocking the boat in all the right ways.
On these latest recordings, Kimberly had the pleasure of collaborating with engineer and producer Bill Szawlowski, whose career has spanned several decades, and earned him more than 30 gold, platinum, and double-platinum records. Over the years, Szawlowski has worked with many heavy hitters such as Oliver Jones, Ranee Lee, Suzie Arioli, and April Wine.
Pulsating with emotional power, HEART WAVE features six songs with carefully crafted lyrics, denoting Kimberly's love of literature and parallel career as a literary critic. Having published in the Montreal Review of Books, The Globe and Mail, Quill & Quire, and University Affairs Magazine, the artist approaches songwriting with the same kind of depth and expertise she devotes to book reviews and features.
A circle of seasoned musicians contributed to the sound on Kimberly & the Dreamtime’s self-titled debut album, which was launched in March 2011. Noteworthy for its modern, yet timeless appeal, it features an enticing variety of pieces, ranging from spoken-word, to rock ballads and electronica.
Joined by her stellar Dreamtime band, Kimberly comes alive onstage, enveloping crowds with her unique brand of reverie rock.

Spirited, inspired, intimate fire… Kimberly and the Dreamtime is poetry you can dance to.
