This year’s Earshot Festival Resident Artist is one of Seattle’s most outstanding jazz musicians.
Johnaye Kendrick is a superb vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, teacher, and composer. While studying music at Western Michigan University, Kendrick was awarded a DownBeat Student Music Award for Outstanding Jazz Vocalist and was featured in an honors recital with pianist Fred Hersch. While attending the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute, Kendrick worked with many outstanding jazz musicians, including Terence Blanchard, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Danilo Perez, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and Brian Blade among others.
For this performance, Kendrick will present her quartet with a special guest horn player. Ensemble memebers TBA. They will perform originals and arrangements from Kendrick’s upcoming album.
