"Let's Do Lunch" with Catherine King, Kim Moberg, Beth DeSombre

Catherine King - Upon graduating Berklee College of Music in 1989 only to leave music behind for over 15 years, international performer and recording artist Catherine King released her debut album, Come Back to Me, in April 2016.

Since then, Catherine has played at various venues on Cape Cod, throughout New England, New York and Canada.  She is a member of BMI, NSAI, Songtown USA, and NETN, and owner of Empty Nest Music Publishing.

Catherine''s new full-length album, Hold On To Your Heart, was released October 2, 2018.

Kim Moberg - was born in Juneau, Alaska, the daughter of a classical pianist mother of Alaskan Native Tlingit descent and a US Coast Guard veteran father from Kansas. Music was the constant in Kim''s childhood, helping her to adjust to the frequent moves associated with growing up in a military family. 

At the age of 14, Kim began playing acoustic guitar on a borrowed nylon 6 string. A few years later, Kim taught herself to strum and finger pick to her favorite songs by singer/songwriters of the 1970’s, but debilitating stage fright kept her from pursuing her own dream of becoming a professional performer.

In 2014, after a hiatus from music to raise her two daughters with her husband, Kim set out to overcome her stage fright and wrote her first song. 

Kim''s debut CD entitled "Above Ground”, celebrates the achievement of her goal to bring her music out of the basement.  “Above Ground”, produced by Grammy nominated producer Jon Evans, was released worldwide in September 2017. Kim’s sophomore CD “Up Around The Bend”, also produced by Jon Evans, is due for release in Fall of 2019.

Kim''s passionate and heartfelt vocals mesmerize listeners while her compositions and story telling tug at feelings of melancholy, heartbreak, healing and social consciousness.

Kim is a regionally touring artist who’s resume includes sharing the stage with numerous contemporary and established artists including Jim Kweskin, Bill Staines, Catie Curtis, Grace Morrison and Vance Gilbert.

Beth DeSombre (pronunciation: de-SOM-bree) writes songs that are "smart and uplifting . . . focusing on the quiet meaning to be found in ordinary life" (Sing Out! Magazine), exploring issues from the personal to the political. Her music touches both mind and heart, with insights wrapped in melody and harmony that stay with you after the echoes of the last chorus have faded away. Her 2017 EP, Resistance, reached #10 on the folks charts (with two top-10 songs). This EP, with songs written in response to the current political situation, is a fundraiser for the ACLU. Her 2016 CD, I Was Here, was produced by Sean Staples.
