The 2014 Earshot Jazz Festival presented the lovely Johnaye Kendrick and her Group this fall at Cornish College.

Frequently seen on prestigious New York stages, vocalist Johnaye Kendrick has enriched the Seattle jazz community and mentored many other vocalists since becoming Associate Professor of Jazz Voice at Cornish College of the Arts in recent years.

Kendrick is respected for intelligent, soulful, and highly personal original compositions as well as fresh interpretations of beloved jazz and blues classics. Focusing on graceful renditions of originals and jazz standards Kendrick often accompanies herself on harmonium, violin, viola and percussion, playing and recording in the company of pianist Dawn Clement, bassist Chris Symer, and drummers Byron Vannoy and D’Vonne Lewis.
