Kendra Shank is "a superbly skilled vocalist" (New York
Times) with a "delectable voice" (Time magazine) and
"breathtakingly original concept" (Boston Globe). Her
inventive phrasing, soulful storytelling, and spontaneous
ensemble interplay, make each performance a creative, in-
the-moment experience that entrances and inspires audiences.
Headlining at festivals, concerts, and clubs across the U.S.
and internationally, Shank combines jazz originals,
standards, world music, French chansons, folk/pop songs, and
open improvisation in an adventurous, genre-bending style
that inspired Abbey Lincoln to call her “an original; a
singer with a sound.”
Kendra Shank's six critically acclaimed CDs have garnered
numerous "Best of the Year" awards, DownBeat poll
recognition, and international airplay
