"Kim Skovbye is a composer, songwriter and poet. Born in copenhagen in 1955, he grew up in a home frequented by artists.
The Celtic harp is his main instrument, but as a true multiinstrumentalist he also knows how to handle the guitar, violin, bouzouki, mandoline, flutes, cello, dulcimer and keyboards.
During the eighties, Kim made numerous trips to Ireland, Wales and Bretagne, the old Celtic countries. His meeting with the Celtic music has become a lasting inspiration for him. But he does not play Celtic music, 'the Celts are better at that'. His music is born out of Scandinavian tradition, incorporating the light and the landscapes to give form and color to the music.

In 2002 the album 'The Ring vol. 1' was released. The first in a series of two, this album is a musical companion for the first half of the 'Lord of the rings' trilogy. For almost a decade, Kim has been working on music inspired by the world of J. R. R. Tolkien, and this album is a masterpiece of recreating, in music, the magic of Tolkien, as the whole world has come to love it."
