KJ Denhert -][- ALBUM No.9 – [Motema Music, 2010]
With a genre-transcending sound that she calls “Urban Folk & Jazz”, award-winning singer-songwriter KJ Denhert has been making audiences laugh, dance and cry for over three decades. She’s self-produced eight records, appeared at scores of festivals and, since 1998, held ongoing residencies at The 55 Bar in NYC and The Baz Bar in St. Barth’s. Since 2006, KJ has also been a six time artist-in-residence at the Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy.
This fall marked the release of her new CD, a live recording entitled, KJ Denhert: Dal Vivo a Umbria Jazz. “The title translates to ‘Live at Umbria Jazz’, but it sounds so much sexier spoken in Italian. I call it “Dal Vivo” for short,” KJ remarks in her notably precise Italian accent.
Performing Songwriter magazine was among the first to herald KJ’s talents, stating, “KJ Denhert is so full of a love for life that you hear it in her voice, her lyrics and the exuberant beats of her songs.”
