Alabama’s KIM TIBBS boasts an impressive CV. It includes work with people like Billy Ray Cyrus, The Blind Boy of Alabama, Noel Gourdin, Percy Sledge, Bobby Rush, Bobby Bland, Paul Rogers of Bad Company, The Hi-Rhythm Section of Memphis, The Swampers of Muscle Shoals, Keke Wyatt, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and Felix Cavaliere of the Rascals.

Last year she debuted with her very own ‘I Need You For Your Love!’ and while we wait for Ms Tibbs to complete her album she’s just released a new single, a lazy, jazz-tinged soul groove, ‘Drifting’. The cut’s retro flavours include a Herbie Mann style flute towards the end.

‘Drifting’ is coupled with the slower, more sensual, ‘For’…. an old school soul ballad that allows Kim to show what she can do in the vocal department.

KIM TIBBS; Drifting/For is out now on Black Orchid Records
