Seattle jazz vocalist par excellence Kelley Johnson brings a wealth of experience performing internationally and as one of Seattle's most respected singers for over 20 years. Johnson has toured the world with renowned pianist John Hansen and reunites with Victoria's power-house drummer Kelby MacNayr and groove-master bassist Peter Dowse for an evening of celebrated jazz classics in an intimate performance at Hermann's Jazz Club.
“...crisp, relaxed, clearly-executed jazz vocals, Johnson has the control
and sardonic élan of Carmen McRae.”
– Paul DeBarros, The Seattle Times
