KJ Denhert (http://www.kjdenhert.com) is a unique artist, singer,guitarist and songwriter who calls her music Urban Folk and Jazz.Her voice is powerful, her lyrics full of intelligent insight, andher musicianship is impeccable. Her eclectic yet unified performancesreach out to many different types of audiences without compromisingher music and beliefs. She is heard at her best on her most recentrecording, Lucky 7 and is known to be especially good live. She performsthe unusual feat of being both highly individual and quite accessible.
KJ remembers, “I picked up a guitar when I was ten and immediatelyI started writing music. I loved Sergio Mendes’ songs, likedJohn Hartford on the Glenn Campbell Show and really got into JamesTaylor and Joni Mitchell who I still consider my two main influences.I also loved the singer-songwriters of the time including CaroleKing and Laura Nyro and later fell in love with Steely Dan’smusic, and just wore out my copy of Hubert Laws’ Rite Of Spring.I was completely self-taught, by llistening to records and playingthem over and over, teaching myself tablature from a great JamesTaylor book and modal tunings from Joni Mitchell’s For TheRoses song book. I didn’t really do anything but play guitarthrough my teenage years.”
In the 1980s, KJ Denhert toured for six years as the lead guitaristand occasional vocalist with an all-female band called Fire, playingrock and top-40 music throughout the US, Canada and Europe. Afterthe group ran its course, she worked at a day job while continuingto write and play music. While working in Cleveland as a financialanalyst, she started the Mother Cyclone label and made her firstrecording. Moving home to New York in 1997, she formed the NY Unit,a group that she still performs with. “I look for players whohave an ability to groove and have lots of drama in their playing.
Among KJ Denhert’s many accomplishments, in addition to running her own band and label, are three highly successful appearances at Umbria Jazz (“the audience response was very gratifying”), an ongoing residency since 1999 at The 55 Bar in NYC, winning many songwriting contests (including being named among the six winners of the Kerrville New Folk Song contest in June 2006 for Private Angel and the Mountain Stage Newsong contest in August 05 for Little Mary), and successful appearances at other festivals and clubs around the world. Her previous recording, Another Year Gone By, Live won the 2006 Independent Music Award for Best Live Performance.
