Interview with Jeffry-Wynne Prince of The Kimberly Trip
SacTV.com "Video of the Day" review by
Alex Cosper on Feb. 23, 2012
Jeffry-Wynne Prince talks about The Kimberly Trip, a modern rock band that picks up where new wave
left off. Prince's wife Kim is the lead singer of the fun group that offers an upbeat contrast to
to the common doom and gloom sound voiced by many current rock bands. He explains the formation of
the group and how it has succeeded handling its own business. With over 100,000 downloads and
a long history of creating their own venues, The Kimberly Trip is well-poised to advance with the
independent music revolution of the 2010s.
Prince is featured in the 2010 book that documents this pop music expansion called Indie Revelations,
in which he discussed how the band was able to secure a music video deal with the Electronics Arts
video game Rock Band for the song "California." The band represents a model for other bands who want
to pave their own path, as they record, release and promote their music on their own. Part of what
makes the band successful is the lure of their humorous lyrics that point to the message it's ok to
have your own identity. Their songs "Not Quite Right in the Head" and "Shy Girl From Orange Country" are
examples of unique conversation pieces conducive for social networking.
Update: June 23, 2013
The band recorded new music in 2012 and continues to do show. In the Spring of 2013, however, Kimberly
injured her ankle and the band was forced to cancel several summer shows and a few video shoots. The band
then focused their attention on recording and completing an album by the end of summer. The album will
be called Hold Up the Sky. The band has had a busy year, as they went on a Pacific Northwest tour
that covered Eugene, Oregon, Seattle and Boise in April. They plan on resuming live shows in August.
