Kimberly Henninger

Kimberly Henninger of Cathedral Sounds was born and raised in the musical mecca of Detroit MI. Her earliest musical memories are of tuning into AM Motown radio and listening to gospel songs and learning harmonies from her mom while riding in their Ford Pinto. As a teenager she snuck out to every punk and hip hop show she could, bounced around in a few bands, and studied video and media production under the esteemed tutelage of music industry icon Russ Gibb. Before turning 20 she co-founded a long standing venue of underground music and art – and booked dozens of underground acts over the course of several years. A short road trip to the West Coast eventually developed into a long-term love affair with the lush green mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Kimberly studied Fine Art at the University of Alaska and completed her degree in Art & Psychology at The Evergreen State College in Olympia WA. She has created music in cabins with cassette four tracks, with field recorders in parking garages, and in forests on big rivers. Kimberly is now a full-time composer and visual artist living in Portland Oregon. She is also a co-founder of Girls Rock Camp Foundation. In 2015, with partner Shawn Parke, Kimberly composed the original scores for the award winning indie feature Embers (Dir. Claire Carre) and Lucky (Dir. Bari Kang). Kimberly is a member of ASCAP & OMPA.
