Insider: Kim Thomas

This was a very entertaining and informative interview. Today we begin a little over twelve minutes into the interview because this is such a great interview and is relatively long. Kim’s father was in the US military, so they did not stay in one place for very long. Her time in Japan has a large effect on her early work and she began creating art, both music and visual, at an early age. This free segment focuses on her music career.
