Image Of Vocalist Keri Johnsrud    Keri Johnsrud is a fresh and appealing jazz singer with a quietly expressive voice and a deep understanding of lyric interpretation. She is an important member of the jazz community with over 15 years of headlining appearances at some of the nation’s top venues, including Chicago’s historic Green Mill Cocktail Lounge and the Jazz Showcase, The Kitano and Cornelia Street Cafe in New York City, and Churchill Grounds and Velvet Note in Atlanta. Keri regularly tours the US with her own group and also lends her voice to several Chicago ensembles, including the critically acclaimed Shawn Maxwell’s Alliance.

For her latest record, Keri collaborated with GRAMMY nominated pianist Kevin Bales to release 'Beyond the Neighborhood: The Music of Fred Rogers', which has been selected as a Top 10 Jazz Album of 2018 by Cadence Magazine, All About Jazz, WDCB 90.9, and included in the NPR Jazz Critics Poll. Johnsrud and Bales have succeeded in reimagining and rearranging the music that has been heard by numerous generations on the beloved children’s television program Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. The songs, which up until now were specifically tailored for a child’s ear, are now presented as reinvented gems that are wise and wistful, simple but not simplistic, and even, in some cases, a bit sultry.
