Meet Jim & Kim

The Story Behind the Music

Jim and Kim Rhindress are a happily married couple who have been performing together professionally since 2015 and are the heart and soul of Rhindress.

Jim has been playing guitar and singing professionally since he was 15 years old and Kim has been playing the piano and singing in public since the age of five. They come from very different musical backgrounds – Jim’s, classic rock and Kim’s, classical and musical theatre but their love for music and each other has brought about a wonderful alchemy. 

They perform as an acoustic duo with Jim on acoustic guitar and Kim on bass OR as a party duo with Jim on electric guitar and Kim on keys. With more than 700 songs in their repertoire, they are easily able to modify their duo shows to suit any audience with songs from modern country and love songs to crowd favourites that span 7 decades.


They began writing songs in 2017 and now have more than 20 original tunes. Their first EP “My Heart Is Yours” and was released November 1, 2021 and a full-length 10 song album Cut Flowers was released September 1, 2022.

True Canadiana, their songs are based on real-life experiences and the people they have met during travels across Canada and the world. Their songs cover a wide range of musical styles from ballads to country rock to comedy blues to east coast Celtic.

Lyrics and harmonies are important components of all of the music they write and perform. They also love a good laugh and have written some funny tunes about cellphone addiction, how to get out of speeding tickets  and even Kazoos as a sexy metaphor.

Their high energy live shows share the stories behind the songs and bring the audience on a journey of laughter, tears and discovery about what it is to be human.

When they play with a full band, they have some of the most talented musicians in the region: Cyril Schermann on bass has been nominated for a BCCMA award as best bassist in BC. Scott Evans on drums has played big stages for thousands of people throughout his career.
