J.R. Rivero Kinsey (formerly Suarez) is a story teller, a music maker, a lyricist, guided only by a need to connect with sound and stories that engage the heart on an intimate level. A life-long musician and singer, writing crept into her life several years ago and has slowly taken a prominent position. She is currently working on a series of creative nonfiction about finding family and the struggle of growing up not knowing who you are. She has written two solo albums, and her music has been featured in stage productions by Off Center Dance, and film productions by Wild Lens and Axel Void. She also wrote and recorded the soundtrack for the documentary “Bluebird Man”, which aired nationally and was nominated for a NW Emmy Award. She currently lives in Idaho where she weaves her time around music and prose, and studies Gaelic in moments between.
