Watch any live performance by the Kennedy Administration, with this quartet's singular namesake at the microphone, and you'll see right away that the rapt audience for Kennedy includes the very skilled, well-traveled players on stage. Kennedy's joy is contagious.The band has been refining their sound and irresistible stage presence for three years at their Groove residency in NYC.
With credits ranging from Stevie Wonder, Gregory Porter, Andra Day to Lauryn Hill, and a roster of acclaimed "musician's musicians" in between, the Kennedy Administration's instrumental trio has seen, heard and played a lot.
Motor City native Kennedy, who made her way to New York, has carved out her own formidable body of work, thanks to a vocal style that is inflected with great influences - think Ella Fitzgerald, Sade, Anita Baker, even a dash of Luther Vandross - but has its own timbre and particular mix of playfulness and seductive poise. In a few short years since coming east, in one of the world's most competitive entertainment capitals, Kennedy has amassed gigs and collaborations with Lalah Hathaway, Christina Aguilera, Kenny Lattimore, Monifah and Cheryl Pepsi-Riley.
Forging a sound and identity for itself, the Kennedy Administration is creating sensory, soulful modern jazz with elements of r&b, hip-hop and pop judiciously applied. Led by an inspirational singer - who takes her role seriously and carries it with graceful good humor - this particular Kennedy Administration is ushering in a brand new "Great Society" of sweet music.
