Kim Versteynen & Tim Finoulst
Kim Versteynen: voice
Tim Finoulst: guitar
The duo Kim Versteynen and Tim Finoulst is a collaboration between two young, sensitive musicians in the most transparent way possible: voice and guitar.

It is a very intimistic project, though a delightfully enchanting one. Kim and Tim tear away from the traditional soloist – accompanist roles and work their way towards each other through interaction and improvisation: music in the purest sense with loads of creativity. They combine the warm sounds of their instruments with an abundance of personal interpretation and empathy in a wide-ranging repertoire of original and other compositions. On July 21st 2013, they won the Concours Des Jeunes Talents at the Dinant (B) Leffe Jazz Nights festival. The jury praised the audacity of the project, the quality of the musicians, their soberness and intimacy, the way they adapt popsongs to the jazz tradition and their stage presence. Their debut album First Time will be released in November 2014 with the Belgian label RailNote Records.

Singer Kim Versteynen (1984) backs up the intuition with which she sings by two master degrees: art history and jazz singing. Next to working in the duo with Tim Finoulst, she's active in several projects, jazz as well as cross-over: with her own quartet, Kim In the Middle, she released an already well-recieved second album Open & Close in April 2014. Kim is also a singing teacher, specialized in coaching young jazz students on their way to the Conservatory.

Tim Finoulst (1986) graduated summa cum laude at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. During his studies he started the Sullivan Street Trio which landed fourth place at the Jazz Hoeilaart jazz competition in 2011. With The Circle he played at Jazz Middelheim in the summer of 2009, together with guest Mark Turner. He's a young, but very busy player in the Belgian jazz scene, often working with people like Nicolas Thys, Tutu Pouane and Carlo Nardozza.
