Jazz Vocalist Sarah Kennedy

Sarah Kennedy

Vancouver-based jazz vocalist Sarah Kennedy is known as one of the most engaging and versatile songstresses around town. She delights audiences with her effortless delivery of an extensive jazz repertoire including swing standards, bossa novas and ballads. Her emotional and vocal range is such that she may make a particularly poignant tribute to Joni Mitchell in the same set as a splendidly entertaining Blossom Dearie impression.

Sarah discovered her love for performing in 2007, after being tricked into an open mic night with a few Martinis and has never looked back. Known for her sweet and flirtatious stage presence, a light and smooth vocal tone with a wide range, she delivers true depth of emotional expression that never fails to break a few hearts.

Her debut album, “Portrait,” produced by Jennifer Scott, was released in October 2015, and has been played on CBC Hot Air as well as A-Trane radio. Sarah was recently interviewed on CBC’s Hot Air for Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th Birthday commemoration.

At our upcoming event on November 4th Sarah will be accompanied by an all-star band of Vancouver's finest jazz musicians including Nick Peck on Keys, Parker Woods on Guitar, Alex Kelley on bass and Bernie Arai on drums.
