Formerly the front woman of progressive rock band Touchstone, Kim has launched her solo career and has joined forces with White Star Records.
Recovery Is Learning has been penned together, with the help of one of prog music’s finest and prevalent musicians, John Mitchell (who also assists in the running of White Star Records, together with Chris Hillman).
Kim’s work on this album is ready to connect with those who suffer or who have ever suffered from a mental or physical illness and is out now.
The title track ‘Recovery Is Learning’ was premiered over at Prog, you can listen to the single below.
Kim Seviour- Recovery Is Learning
Kim says this about the title track –
“”Recovery is all about learning” is a quote taken by Clinical Psychiatrist Professor Jim Lucey, who has a strong optimism and belief of the power of recovery for sufferers of mental illness. I found this quote during my psychology studies and it’s stuck with me ever since. It’s helped me through my own struggles with ME, depression and anxiety, and the song was written for a close friend who was being treated for anorexia at the time. I believe that we’ve all got the capacity to learn from our experiences and to find our core selves, and that it will always be waiting for us to return.”
The album is available digitally and on CD from all good stores. The CD is in digipak format with an 8 page colour lyric booklet. A limited edition artwork card signed by Kim is available with initial copies ordered direct from the White Star Records website while stocks last.

ABOUT KIM SEVIOUR
Kim has a particularly unique approach to the feel of her musical creations, which encompass magically mesmerising soundscapes and lyrical content that represents her own personal journey to recovery. After enduring various adversities whilst going through the writing process for the album, her ongoing struggle with M.E/CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) motivated her more than ever to inject her experiences and emotions into her music, which has cultivated in a stunningly unique album that is sure to cement her as an artist to watch.
Kim says this about her recovery –
“I started off wanting to write about what I’d learned already from my own health experiences and the process of recovering from them. I became unexpectedly ill in other ways whilst writing which actually delayed it, so the second half of the writing process was all about climbing out of it for myself. Because of this, the album turned into a truly organic self-fulfilling prophecy.”
Kim was the first ever signing to White Star Records. Her former achievements to date are touring with Touchstone and playing with notable artists in the prog and rock scene such as It Bites, Joe Elliot, and performing at festivals such as High Voltage and Ramblin Man Fair. Her work with Touchstone was what inspired Chris ad John to sign Kim’s solo endeavour after she departed Touchstone.
