Kimball Hooker grew up at a young age listening to and playing music in the house. His first passion was dancing and playing the drums. His inspiration came from watching and listening to the musician at church. He loved the snap of the snare and wanted to emulate the sounds that he heard. He would sit and practice for hours on my back porch. That passion then grew into singing, songwriting, and producing. At 18, He moved with some high school friends to Minneapolis, MN to play music. He played the local scene there for several years. After moving back to California, he gained a pretty good notoriety playing drums with several local bands. During this time, He received many endorsements from major drums companies such as: Kickport International, StageworksGear, VALOR Drumsticks, KAT Alternate Mode www.alternatemode.com/katartists/kimballkhookhooker, Tune-bot www.tune-bot.com/artists.html, and Prentice Practice Pads www.prenticepracticepads.com/blog/?page_is=1019 .

He has been blessed to play with several top entertainers in multiple genres: Cindy Herron, from the multi-platinum group EnVogue, Jazz Legends Eddie Gale and Calvin Keys , Soul Sensations Gloria Scott and Diva Ladee Chico www.divaladeechico.com , Romanian pop singer Lara Moco , Blues Legends Lazy Lester and Kenny Neal , Rapper Prohoezak , Jazz greats Eric Darius, Marion Meadows, and Johnny Britt of (Impromp2) www.johnnybritt.com and countless other bands.

2015 is the year of Kimball Hooker. The past few months, he has already performed alongside Troop, Kelly Price, and Luenell Campbell at the OHM Nightclub in L.A. I sang Diamonds and Pearls with Sangin’ Sara, at a Benefit for Rosie Gaines. He was a featured artist at Sherry Gordy Presents in Las Vegas and returned in August to host and perform at their 2 year anniversary special. He also took second place in an international radio contest on Sparkx Radio. One of the biggest highlights of 2015 (so far), has been performing at the Bay Area Black Music Awards and winning two BMA Awards (The Ambassador of Music Award and The Best Urban Pop/Rock Award).

Today he is a seasoned singer, songwriter, producer, and professional drummer. He has released multiple hit singles that he both wrote and produced. “Light Em Up” has gained the most attention with several remixes. Kimball just released a remix of Light Em Up produced by Freddy Kaza www.facebook.com/fredy.shimoda/about from Brazil. Light Em Up has been very successful in Europe, especially in France where it is being played on rotation every hour on Funk France Radio. His can also be found on Pandora.

  22. Kimball Hooker is the most talented musician I’ve ever worked with. I met Kimball about 15 years ago and I was looking for someone to create some beats for some raps I had wrote. Before meeting Kimball I had spent time in studios in Richmond and San Francisco but I could never seem to get that “right sound” I was looking for. I needed a catchy beat with some 808 drums and snares, highs, I wanted folks to say “who did your music” I knew my rap game was on point already. It was the funky dope beat I was missing. K-Hook put me on the map! We took first place in our ECO-Rap show in San Francisco! Kimball was like… Damn! Our first show and we took first place Romey Rome AKA “The Ebony Poet” I still tell people all the time about the Mad Skills Kimball has. Hands down he’s the Best in the Bay!… Actually now The Bay and Beyond!

  43. First of all I am really impressed but not surprised to have read so many wonderful comments on Kimball Hooker on how he has touched the lives of so many who he has come in contact with along his extensive path in the Music Industry as a singer, musician, entertainer and host.

    Kimball was first introduced to me by Andrew-“DJ Ansy Asota” from Europe heavily into EDM Music. He knew that I live in Los Angeles, CA. and insisted that I get in contact with him. So I did exactly that. I first “googled” him and saw that he does in fact have his sh-t together. He has a website, his music is sold on downloadable music websites, he’s on Pandora, videos on Youtube that includes Live performances which that in itself is crucial showing me that in fact he can sing and music videos like “Sexy Senorita” filmed in Miami, Florida where I have lived for over 20 years.

    Being that I am an independent record label, Trigga Entertainment, that has been under the radar and lately I have been focusing on what I am truly best at in Management & Consulting knowing so many great people in the Music Industry, I decided to really listen to this incredible guy that has the knowledge and wisdom of old school as well as in current music covering music genres like ‘House”, “Hip Hop”, “R & B” and so on but starting back from the 70s, 80s & 90s where til this date are the most preferred decades in listening to music now because of the true artists that sang in those period of time. My young daughters, 7, 9 & 11 listen to it instead of the music of today. So we have allot in common and that’s when I decided to commit some of my time in guiding him toward one of his goals in becoming a Billboard Charting Recording Artist. That will “definitely” happen 🙂

    One advice I gave him was to keep connecting to Music Industry people because in reality its a very small world where all of us will connect with each other one way or the other. I advised him to become a Grammy Member in San Francisco and attend the get togethers, all of them if possible and the Grammys itself even if the cost is over $600 or $700. It’s worth it because you never know who will be sitting beside you. Network, network, network. Continue to have this drive that he has and believe in himself that he will in fact be well known and become an International Star touching thousands, maybe millions of lives along the way to then reach out to the less fortunate and give. Become a mentor, a teacher and a leader and touch everyone that he comes in contact with that just wants or needs that push in life in never giving up.

    So now as an ex-military retired Air Force Veteran of 26 years in the Air Force, it is my duty to make him a Star in leading him to the right people that will get him there. I know those people. It’s time!

    Follow Kimball because he is unique, a very positive spirit and light you will want to connect with personally and a true all around Recording Artist. Thank you Ansy Asota for connecting him with me as I have already met the crew at Sherry Gordy Presents, “Take the Stage” in Las Vegas through Kimball. That in itself is a blessing!! See you on Stage!

    • A fan for life. Love him so very much especially his extraordinary music. A true gift from God. I’m also his first stalker. Yes, Jackie Pucci is definitely stalking his fine behind. ??❤️??

  44. Kimball Hooker has been blessed witha a great talent and its not just his muscianship skills. He’s been blessed witha great love in his heart also for humankind.

  138. Kimball’s one of the last artists I’ve heard that dosn’t have to use vulgar words to make a great song.. I’ve been listening to and feeling his musicfor literally years now.. I’ve never personally meet Kimball but I feel like I have through his music and how much he really loves what he does.. That’s 1 of the bravest life events that very few follow through with and the less paved road.. I personally was raised in the music and dance industry my entire life.. I was a real ballerina and dancer.. My Late Great Uncle Tom Marik had his own studio professionally trained in New York then my Aunt did also then my generation.. My Uncle was the coregrapher of the Top less but beautiful ladies in las Vegas back in the day… I have only seen such confidence in doing someone that he truly loved doing without any support back then.. Good luck Kinball congratulations and break a leg.. Sincerely Yours Jeana…
