A highly appealing jazz singer with a quietly expressive voice and a deep understanding of the lyrics that she interprets, Keri Johnsrud has been an important part of the vocal jazz scene for the past 15 years. With headlining appearances at some of the nation’s top venues including Chicago’s historic Green Mill Cocktail Lounge, the Jazz Showcase, Atlanta’s Churchill Grounds, and multiple appearances in New York City and Los Angeles, Keri has built a strong reputation and following among peers and fans, alike.
Recently, Keri teamed up with collaborator and GRAMMY nominated pianist Kevin Bales to release her sophomore album “This Side of Morning”, which features all-original vocal jazz material. Since its unveiling, the album has garnered rave reviews respected industry publications such as All About Jazz (5 out of 5 stars) and Jazz Weekly. Keri and her group will feature selections from this album, along with unreleased original music, and jazz standard favorites.
