KIM ROWE

PictureKim has always been a performer and a flirt, starting at the ripe young age of 6, when she and her stepsister would write and perform after-dinner plays for the family; she was always the damsel in distress, being rescued by some evil someone.    In elementary school, she collaborated with her best friends to star in several plays and musicals at school, as well as produced and starred in Variety Shows for friends and family on weekends at home. At summer camp, she was chosen to play Sandy from Grease (her favorite Musical), and she got to personally select her Danny. They re-wrote the musical combining several hit movies, called “Thank God It’s a Greasy Friday Night.” She received her B.A. from California State University Northridge in Honors English, and was working as VP of a film distribution company, when a client asked why she wasn’t an actress. She quipped, “Who says I’m not,” and started taking acting classes only on a dare from the client to see if she could act. She could, and went on to star in several movies and guest star on several television shows, before pursuing other life inspiring ventures, including world travel, becoming a certified Ayurveda Counselor, and teaching yoga4kids.
She has recorded, in total…. belt ya heart out, rockstar fashion cover songs with her life long musician friend: Marilyn Monroe’s “I Wanna Be Loved by You,” Elvis’ “Trouble,” and Blondie’s “One Way or Another.” She has also recorded back up vocals for Sonny Vincent, The Spiders, and The Superbees, and has starred in various music videos (back in the day, when MTV rocked ‘em): Donna Summer “I Will Go With You,” Dolly Parton “Salt in my Tears,” Dragbeat “Pure Dirt,” Hangmen “Bent,” to name a few.  She met Christina through a mutual friend, and as fate would have it, they hit it off beautifully. She is so grateful to be a part of the Flirts comeback.

The songs are so catchy – they just make you want to move. And the fans? They are some of the most whole- hearted and enthusiastic I’ve seen. I’m so excited to jump on board The Flirts. It’s kinda like a party on-stage!”
