About

All of the content you see on this here bloggy blog was written by me, Kim Ware. I am a Communications Manager by day, musician/indie record label owner by night. I live in Southwest Atlanta with my husband and best friend Mark, our two three dogs Buddy, Churchill and Manny, and our cat Snowden. Our pets bring us constant joy and hours of entertainment and I really can’t imagine our lives without them. That’s Churchill and Snowden in my header graphic.

I was born and raised in a very small town called Kings Mountain, located in the foothills of North Carolina (about 35 miles west of Charlotte). After graduating high school I moved to Wilmington, NC to go to college and remained there for 15 years. It was there that I joined my first band, met my future (ex-) husband, started a record label and made many dear friends, so Wilmington will always have a very special place in my heart. In October of 2004 I moved to Atlanta, where I’ve managed to make a cozy home for myself; I purchased an old brick tudor in May of ’06, something I feel is my biggest accomplishment to date, especially considering that just two years prior I had given up practically everything to live in a one-bedroom, furnished apartment.

Music is my passion, when I’m not playing it I’m listening to it or thinking about it. I’ve been a drummer for over half my life and recently started dabbling in guitar and songwriting. I launched my own solo project a couple of years ago; named The Good Graces (after my Grandmother, who I miss dearly… her name was Grace), it is my outlet for expressing myself as I venture through this challenging and confusing thing that we call Life. Aside from that, I just try to keep up with this crazy, yet completely wonderful thing called life. I am constantly inspired my all my friends and fellow musicians here, and can only hope that what I do is an inkling as impressive as what they do.

I also really love to write, as well as dabble in web design, so this blog is a good outlet for both. So enjoy, ponder, comment… if you like what you see here (or even if you don’t), feel free to comment or get in touch. I also urge you to check out my other little “projects,” some of which I’ve mentioned already, but all linked below for your convenience. Thanks for stopping by!
