Kimberly Brewer: Sweet Sensual Soul


Let’s hop right into this latest single / video, “Don’t Make Me Wait Too Long” featuring the amazing Joe and incomparable Stevie Wonder — Tell me about this particular, not to mention stellar, track; how did it even come to fruition?

Don’t Make Me Wait Too Long” song was written by Stevie Wonder. It was originally performed by Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway.

Aside from the obvious, how then does “Don’t Make Me Wait Too Long” either differ and / or compare to previous Kimberly Brewer entries?

“DMMWTL” is a fun, upbeat, Disco type of song as opposed to the more R&B or contemporary Jazz type of songs that are on my upcoming EP.

As a songwriter, when you sit down to pen your lyrics where do you draw your inspiration from?

In my songwriting, I usually draw inspiration from life events.

Reflecting, tell me your whole inception into music — When did you first become interested in it? And, how did it all begin for Kimberly Brewer?

I actually started singing in elementary school…then I moved onto singing in my church choir. I attended The Shenandoah College and Conservatory of Music. I also attended Morgan State University. I majored in music education, with (a) minor in Music Therapy.

Now where exactly do you hail from? And growing up there, who all did / do you consider to be your strongest musical influences?

I’m from Hackensack, New Jersey. My strongest musical influences are Stevie Wonder and Minnie Riperton.

In having said that, how do you classify your overall sound and / or style?

I would classify my sound as “sweet sensual soul.“

Switching gears here…

What do you feel has and will continue to be the key to your longevity?

I think the key to my longevity is being true to myself, and true to my sound.

What do you want people to get from your music?

I want people to get positive vibes and fun from my music. I love to be happy, and I love to bring joy to my listeners.

On a more serious note, are you happy with the current state of R&B?

I can’t say that I’m happy or unhappy with the current state of R&B. I’ll just say that it’s different. There are some really strong R&B singers that I do like. It just depends on what you’re looking for.

Do you have any other outside / additional aspirations, maybe even completely away from music?

I do have some aspirations outside of the music industry. I’ve written a children’s book called ‘All Balloons Go To Heaven.’ I look forward to doing more writing possibly for television.

To date, what has been your greatest career moment(s), at least thus far anyway?

My favorite career moment was taking my parents to the White House where I sang a duet with Stevie Wonder during the Clinton Administration.

Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans…

I try to treat my fans as I would like to be treated. I try to be genuine, courteous, considerate and patient.

What is your favorite part about this line of work? Your least favorite? And, why?

My least favorite part of my job is the racism, sexism and unwanted sexual harassment that sometimes happens in this business.

What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?

The advice that I would give those who are possibly going to follow in my footsteps is to just keep trying, believe in yourself, be true to your craft and be true yourself.
