Taeko Kunishima

Born:

"I was born in Japan and studied classical piano performance at university. When I heard Miles Davis on the radio, I switched to jazz.

I had a long absence from musical activity while living in the Middle East, and shortly after, in my youth. By experiencing different cultures and listening to Japanese, classical, jazz and  Arabic music I was inspired to write my own diverse compositions ." —Taeko Kunishima (June 2022)

Molly Mahoney

I'll conserve my words and avoid giving the full spiel, but Molly Mahoney is more than a client to me. She's the answer to vocal jazz's future, the logical next step from Nicole Henry and Madeleine Peyroux. The crossover artist with a classical voice is releasing a tribute album of sorts, but it's a bit different—it's a tribute to a cousin, Cole Porter.

Molly grew up in a world she credits for taking her as far as she's gone. She began performing with a traveling big band at age ten and hasn't stopped performing since (save for that whole uncomfortable year before the vaccine)
