The music of guitarist/singer/songwriter KJ Denhert transcends genres and generations. The description - coined by Denhert herself - “urban folk and jazz artist” only begins to sum up the influences heard in her performances and compositions. KJ channels passion through intelligent lyrics, soulful vocals and impeccable musicianship. She is irrepressible, exuberant, prolific, versatile and driven. KJ and her band, The New York Unit, have headlined at festivals in the US and internationally, including the prestigious Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy (where she has been invited back for eight consecutive seasons), the San Jose, Cape Cod, and Rochester Jazz Festivals, as well as at clubs such as the Blue Note and 55 Bar in NYC and the Baz Bar in St. Barths.
