Kym "Hawk" Priess

Kym Priess is an LA-based adventurous, bold multi-media performance / musical artist and songwriter who is also an actor. Her creations are highly influenced by the Wizard of Oz, the art of drag / disguise / alter egos, vivid imagery, 80s/90s music videos, fairy tales, old comic books, human interaction and rock ’n roll wizardry.
Kym’s work pushes boundaries, forms and comfort levels yet maintains a whimsical, absurd and curious tone. Her multi-disciplinary projects have been seen in music venues, galleries, theaters, non-traditional locations and federal prisons in New York, LA, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Honolulu and Austin since the 1990s.
Since 2017, her main hybrid musical focus has been STUNTDRIVER, an adventure rock spectacle, that straddles the lines of art and rock in a dancy electro-rock way that originally debuted at LA’s Highways Performance Space with a sold-out pair of wild, immersive shows.
As a songwriter, Priess' tunes have been heard on "Vanderpump Rules," "The Hills," and "Sierra Keys" to name a few and for many years she was a predominant writer for the placement group, Signature Tracks.

As a frontwoman, Priess has been described as “critical to the existence of the dragon in you” (ComeHereFloyd) and earned comparisons to Siouxsie Sioux and Joan Jett (LaBuzzBand’s Kevin Bronson). This discipline bender’s career took root in the NYU experimental theater world sparking theatrical, comedic, vivid works and a rock opera that was awarded “Best of the Fringe” (SF Fringe Festival). As a musician, Priess has written 300 songs, toured extensively , shared stages with Exene Cervenka and Fishbone and sings backup on William Shatner’s Spirit in the Sky. Priess was born in Austin, Texas, loves roadtrips, tubing down a river and and does her own stunts whenever she can.
