Kristine Jackson Music By KJ..
One of Cleveland Ohio's
Award Winning Vocalists.

With an early career as a trumpet player backing up world class vocalists around the world, KJ has since made a name for herself as not only a guitar player but as a vocalist, studio musician and song writer as well. In 2004 KJ taught herself guitar and began to sing and front her own band, since then music has been her full-time profession. She has opened for the best of best such as B.B.King, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray and more. She can arrange a powerful band and have the stage rockin' or mellow down with just her voice and guitar.

KJ ..... "I praise God for the gifts He's given me. I feel that music is a vehicle, a way to get your emotions from one place to another. I can only hope that my music brings happiness and  maybe some comfort to those who listen."  

Drawing from personal experience and empathy for those around her you can be sure the show will be delivered with meaning and with an originality only KJ can serve up.
