KM was raised in Brooklyn, NY and recently moved to Portland, OR. She didn't really learn to play guitar till she was in high school and didn't become serious about till jr. year in college. For a while, as with all college-aged kids, she was whiny, angsty, and mildly over-dramatic. That's where a good number of her original songs come from. Looking back, it all seems somewhat silly and sounds like badly written poetry. Read more about KM on Last.fm.
