Former SINERGY Singer Teaching At 'School Of Rock', Raising 5-Year-Old Daughter

Former SINERGY singer Kimberly Goss has revealed to Noisecreep that she is now a teacher at the School Of Rock in Naperville, Illinois, where she is also raising her 5-year-old daughter.

When asked if she is involved with any bands right now, the 34-year-old ex-wife of CHILDREN OF BODOM guitarist/vocalist and her former SINERGY bandmate, Alexi Laiho, said, "For me right now, all other things have taken a back seat to motherhood. I didn't want my daughter to be raised by nannies or babysitters, especially in the very beginning of her life, so I definitely chose to put my career on hold to concentrate on being a parent. Now that she's getting a little older, I felt good about slowly getting back into music by teaching part time at the School Of Rock. I'm also currently writing for a music supervision company, whose job it is to place background music in TV shows. Writing a big, majestic film score has always been a dream of mine, but even getting the chance to write small clips for TV shows has been a great experience and I'm really grateful to still be getting opportunities to make a living solely from doing music."

She added, "I would definitely love to start or join another band someday, but for the time being it's not too practical. My days consist of taking my daughter to school, ballet class, libraries, playgrounds, and of course catching great shows like 'Disney Princesses On Ice' or 'Sesame Street Live'. [laughs] I do have a feeling that getting back into a band will be somewhere in my future. The urge and desire is definitely still there and I have never stopped writing music. I just have to wait for the time to be right. Stay tuned!"

Regarding whether she would ever do a band with Alexi Laiho again, Goss said, "Alexi will forever be one of my dearest friends and he is without a doubt the greatest musician I have ever worked with, but we are both at very different places in our lives right now. That's not to say that some day in the future something like that couldn't happen, but it's certainly not in the cards anytime soon. I would actually love to finish the fourth SINERGY album that we started production on many years ago. At this rate we can probably look forward to a release date in June of 2042!"

In 2006, Nuclear Blast Records released a "Deluxe Edition" of SINERGY's debut album, "Beware the Heavens". The CD, which originally came out in 1999, features three bonus tracks, all of which have been previously released on assorted tribute albums: "Rock You Like A Hurricane" (SCORPIONS cover), "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (The Man After Midnight)" (ABBA) and "The Number of the Beast" (IRON MAIDEN).

SINERGY's last album, "Suicide by my Side", was released in 2002.

School Of Rock teaches kids to play guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums and combines weekly private music lessons and group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the stage in front of live audiences in an authentic concert setting.
