Kendra Shank

Kendra Shank’s crystal-pure tone, powerful musicianship and elastic phrasing have won her rave critical notices and fans worldwide. Hailed by critics as “one of the most innovative of present-day jazz vocalists” by Drew Wheeler, CDNow and “one of the top jazz singers around today” - Scott Yanow, L.A. Jazz Scene, she has headlined on the club and festival circuits internationally, captivating audiences with her genuine warmth, emotional depth and musical prowess.

Kendra Shank's seven CDs have received numerous “Best of the Year” citations, a New York Times "Critics' Choice," and Down Beat poll recognition, with accolades for her "delectable voice" (Time magazine) and "breathtakingly original concept" (Boston Globe).

Since her 1992 debut at the Village Vanguard with Shirley Horn, Shank has become a mainstay on New York's jazz scene and has headlined at top venues and festivals in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Canada, and across the U.S.  She has appeared on NPR's JazzSet and Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz, was guest guitarist on Abbey Lincoln's Over The Years CD, and has performed and/or recorded as a vocalist with Frank Kimbrough, Fred Hersch, Geoffrey Keezer, Bruce Barth, Larry Willis, Joe Locke, Jay Clayton, Bob Dorough, Ben Monder, John Stowell, Gene Bertoncini, Gary Bartz, Steve Wilson, Victor Lewis, Matt Wilson, and many more.
