about

Kymberley Drake (July 31, 1976–September 15, 1999) was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis from an early age. She fell in love with music and taught herself to play the piano, which she played "all her life." The Children's Wish Foundation gave her a piano circa 1991 and her songwriting began. The Niagara Symphony Orchestra performed a version of her song "An Ocean's Wake" in 1991. Kym's version is presented here.

The tracks were recorded on 4-track circa 1996 and mixed in 1996, 1999 and 2005, except track 4 which was recorded by Ron Elliot and pieced together from three rough mixes. First uploaded March 21, 2012.

The download includes 4 bonus tracks (recorded straight to cassette), and the original mixes and artwork from the earlier cassette release (MMM09).

This is My Mean Magpie 31.
