"Brilliance in interpreting ballads, off-the-cuff maneuvers in bluesy and bawdy environments, whip-smart interactions with the instrumentalists—and you end up with a complete picture of her talents and the manners in which she claims songs as her own."
- All About Jazz, Dan Bilawsky
"Her approach to the material is anything but conventional; with her big, flexible voice, Kinhan brings the passion of a soul singer to the improvisatory reach of a jazz diva."
- New York City Jazz Record, Suzanne Lorge
Veteran singer, composer, arranger and educator Lauren Kinhan has been creating genre smearing music for decades. Whether writing and producing her own records, touring as a member of the internationally renowned New York Voices or passing her knowledge on to the next generation, Lauren's fearless spirit shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, its just the opposite.
During the Covid-imposed sabbatical for performing artists, Lauren took the co-produced monthly concert series she curates with Janis Siegel of The Manhattan Transfer in NYC called Vocal Mania to the virtual landscape. Rebranding and reimagining creating and broadcasting music during the pandemic, they launched Vocal Gumbo, turning their homes into recording studios and their kitchens into TV soundstages.
