Steven Kim


September 1, 2005

Everybody knows at least one Steven Kim. Heck, you may know three, or you may even be Steven Kim. But if you live in some remote outpost that is free of Korean males, here's one Steven Kim that'll sing to you and not stink up the bathroom. He's a journeyman singer-songwriter from Los Angeles who just released Hangman, a four-song EP. He's on the melodic guitar vibe, using big words on “In Spite of It All.” His best songs—“Wake” and “Make It Through”—compare favorably to Coldplay in the tension build/release equation.
