Imagine what would have happened if the Sun Ra Arkestra was Joni Mitchell's band. Imagine if Laurie Anderson wrote songs for Billie Holiday, or if Abbey Lincoln and Lemmy Kilmister had a duo project. That potent and eclectic poise is what the duo, Silvervest, offers. Silvervest is the duo project of Nic Caloia and Kim Zombik that cruxes intimacy at the heart of their compositions. Playing in the field of storytelling, pop, soundscapes, jazz and jangling, Silvervest offers fresh music that is intuitive and unique. They place primary importance on creation that has structure yet allows following their ears into wider spaces. The duo, ever open to possibilities, explores the nuts and bolts of humanity’s mortal coil with tenderness, humour and tunefulness.




Silvervest est le nouveau projet du duo Kim Zombik, voix et Nicolas Caloia, à la basse. Leur but est une musique fraîche qui joue entre fanfaronner et douceur, entre caresse et moulage, amusant et incroyable. Le duo, toujours ouvert aux possibilités, entreprend

des rencontres cosmiques tout en continuant à ‘’satellitiser’’ les histoires de cette bobine humaine. Vibrante, la musique demeure infinie et généreuse.



Kim Zombik is known for her unembellished, poignant style, twice nominated as one of top ten “Best Female Jazz Vocalists” by Japan’s SWING Journal Jazz Magazine. With over 12 albums, one can hear her evolving path through pop, choral, funk, jazz and her new studies of Indian Classical singing. Kim aims to create music that brushes the heart with honesty and pleasure. She has performed in the Montreal International Jazz Festival (2005, 2009, 2014), the L’OFF Jazz Festival (2014, 2018), the Ginza Jazz Festival (Japan 2007), the “New York Blues” Festival in Siberia (2008), as well as toured and recorded with 90-piece New World Orchestra in Japan (2009 under Joe Hisaichi). Kim has opened for Parliament Funkadelic, Maceo Parker, Jimmy Cliff, and sung with Olu Dara and William Parker. Heading her own jazz trio since her move to Montreal 14 years ago, she appears regularly venues throughout the Montreal.
