Re/Verb : More Than M.E. – Kimbi the Goddess

More Than — Poetry

More Than M.E.(Melodious Expressionista) by Kimbi the Goddess is a funky eclectic mix of spoken word infused with a jazz soul and broad sensibilities.  With standout tracks like Ish and Moment, this is an album that is both easy on the ears and good for the soul.

Each track of  More Than M.E. is representative of Kimbi’s own thoughts and experiences, but her navigation of these tropes often flirt with the profound. She weaves her truth through questions about God, black culture, love, and being. She champions oneness; oneness of man and woman, of god and humans, even the oneness between  parent and child. It’s a beautiful message, and one that fittingly ties the project together.
