About Us - An Evolution
Jim Rhindress has been playing professionally since he was 16 years old and Kim Foreman-Rhindress began piano lessons at the age of five. We come from very different musical backgrounds - Jim, classic rock and Kim classical and musical theatre but our love for music and each other has brought about a wonderful alchemy. At Jim's encouragement, Kim picked up the bass which has proven to be a lot of fun and has added a unique versatility to the music they play. She now goes back and forth between keys, bass and occasionally the melodeon.
We created our acoustic cover duo Smitten in 2015 and play all types of musical genres and eras from 1950s and 1960s oldies to classic rock to country to 80s pop and contemporary music in fun acoustic vibe with great harmonies.
Our electric duo can create a great night of fun music for any party. We perform a wide variety of dance and party music ranging from classic rock & country to the best of the '80s dance music.
We began writing original songs in 2017 and now have 18 original songs which we have begun recording under the band name Rhindress Duo. Our songs are a reflection of our real life experiences and the people and stories we have gleaned from our travels across Canada and the world.
Jim builds and repairs guitars under his label JR Guitar and Kim teaches singing and acting in her studio Kelowna Voice Lab.
