ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
When you see KJ Denhert perform you will be drawn in by her artistry as a
singer and as a fine guitarist. Each musical set is a tight mix of rhythm,
wit, and passion. For KJ, there is only one adventure more fulfilling than
songwriting and that adventure unfolds on the stage. Her songs are a calling
card, always unique and then familiar. It is the honesty of her performance
and the love of what she is doing on stage that will move you. She is an
experienced bandleader who plays without a net, and that makes her fun to
watch.

New York native, KJ calls her music Urban Folk and Jazz though it is rooted
in Funk and R & B. "The Jazz", she explains, "comes from people's perceptions
of my guitar voicings and the structure of the tunes themselves... using extended solos and the players working off of each other. Urban reflects my childhood, growing up in NYC, and Folk, I really adored James Taylor, my first guitar influence, and I use acoustic guitar in my songwriting and live shows, as opposed to many years touring as a lead guitarist."

KJ and her Band the NY Unit perform in such legendary rooms as The Bitter End, The Bottom Line, The Fez, the Living Room, and plays regularly to "standing room only" crowds at The 55
Bar in NY's West Village. KJ continues to receive very positive responses wherever she appears, resulting in new and exciting opportunities. In the last six months, KJ was invited to open for Roberta Flack, spent three weeks performing in St. Barts in the French West Indes, and headlined at the Blue Note, Las Vegas from April 8-13, 2002.

Between appearances, KJ finds time to lend her support to many charitable
organizations. She supports efforts to raise money for Aids and Cancer research, and appears annually in the PNW Women's Resource Center telethon. She provides live "on-site" concerts for hospitalized HIV patients through Lifebeat, Inc. (Aids Awareness Organization NYC). KJ also appears on compilation albums such as the "The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Album" (Mod Music, NYC)(1999) and "Brooklyn Above Ground"(2001), in support of World Hunger Year.

KJ resides in Westchester NY and states her goals are simple. As an independent record label owner and founder of Mother Cyclone Records, she says, "I want to grow my label and just keep writing". She dedicates her life mostly to music and explains her passion, "I get to do what I really love and I'm very careful about the quality of what I write, release and perform. I've lived the truth of the slow build as a marketing strategy. I'm a dot.com now and I just keep working hard at putting out the best product I can, whether we're playing live or in the studio". Having spent seven years on the road as a lead guitarist, touring the US, Asia and Europe, KJ shares, "I think we're completely ready to break some new cities in the US now. Then, I'd really love to get back to Europe with my material ... It's finally coming together and I'm having more fun than ever!"

awesome. no matter what style, this lady is hot.
BE CAREFUL. TUNES AND/OR LYRICS MAY BE VERY HARD TO GET OUT OF YOUR MIND. TAKEN IN SMALL DOSES, KJ's ARTISTRY, EMPATHY, AND HONESTY MAKE GOOD OFFICE FODDER. I PREFER PUTTING THIS ON MY HOME PLAYER AND CRANKING IT UP. SHE CAN DO NO WRONG.

Amazing artist, songwriter, singer, and guitarist!
I have enjoyed this CD thoroughly. Every track is incredible - and it keeps getting better with every listen. The songwriting, the arrangements, the instrumentation, and the recording is just so good - yet you don't even think about it because K.J. puts it all out there in a way you don't have to process a thing - just listen and enjoy - thoroughly. I had not heard of K.J. until I came across a short blurb in Acoustic Guitar Magazine's Hit List - they described her music spot on! In the future when a writer describes an artist who is succesful and artful at pulling together so many influences then making it all their own - they will say that the artist is very K.J.!

Music to my ears
First heard "Oh Susannah" on an internet radio site, then ordered the album. The production quality is astounding. I have listened to this album so many times, it reverberates in my brain at moments of quietude. Fantastic sound.

If there is a perfect CD in my collection
Seriously...I love all types of music, Latin, Jazz, Folk, Rock, Funk...and this CD has it all. And not in some disjointed thrown together way. This is the smartest and most listenable CD I've bought in years. I can pull it out for a work out, for a dinner party or to close my eyes and chill to.

This should be in everyone's IPOD, ZUNE or whatever folks listen to music on!

This album kicks! It's fantastic!
A great production! Full sound, groove, and lots of energy. All the songs hang together with a similar energy, yet they're each unique--even the covers. I drive to it, clean my house to it, play it at parties, dance to it with my kids, I even buy it as gifts for my friends.

This CD is a lyrical dose of vitamins for the musically deprived soul.

We love it, Yeah ,Yeah ,Yeah!
