"Keri Johnsrud is largely about finding the unexpected in the familiar. The bright shimmer of her voice, a crystalline instrument of deceptive simple beauty, defies the depth of her artistry."
A highly appealing jazz singer with a quietly expressive voice and a deep understanding of the lyrics that she interprets, Keri Johnsrud has been an important part of the Chicago jazz scene for the past 15 years. With headlining appearances at Chicago's top venues including the historic Green Mill Cocktail Lounge and Jazz Showcase, Keri has built a strong reputation and following among peers and fans, alike.
Because of her experience she can add the right kind of excitement and atmosphere to corporate receptions, private events and wedding cocktail/dinner hours without overwhelming your guests so they can still mingle and network.
Her repertoire includes the music that Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Krall, Tony Bennett, Sinatra and many others made famous.
