Lauren Kinhan
The first thing you notice is her voice, and then her savvy choices. Lauren Kinhan possesses a rare and beautiful instrument, tough and tender, clear and fine-grained in every register, whether she’s dipping down into husky chest tones or ascending into silvery head tones. With her glorious sound, she could sing anything and make it a memorable listening experience. When legendary Phil Ramone discovered and signed Lauren at a Bitter End performance in NYC in 1997, he saw all that and a vision for creative songwriting that went beyond the norm de rigeur.

Whether on her own highly-acclaimed albums, as a 25-year member of the beloved vocal group New York Voices, or as co-founder of two diverse and inventive supergroups, Moss and JaLaLa, singer/songwriter Lauren has always forged her own path as a performer, composer and improviser. With her latest, A Sleepin’ Bee on her own Dotted i Records, Kinhan once again steers herself in unexpected directions that is at once the first all-standards collection of her career, a loving tribute to legendary vocalist Nancy Wilson, and unmistakably a Lauren Kinhan album – with all the unique perspective and idiosyncratic personality that has come to imply. Downbeat Magazine agreed, giving it 4 1/2 Stars in it’s February 2018 issue!

Joining Lauren will be Ron King (Trumpet), Kevin Van den Elzen (Drums), Mike Gurrola (Bass), and Adam Hersh (Piano).
