Kari van der Kloot

Canadian vocalist Kari van der Kloot presents an exciting new voice on the horizon. Living somewhere in the space between jazz and folk, Kari’s compositions fit seamlessly into a tradition of great Canadian singer-songwriters, such as Joni Mitchell, while still honoring her roots in jazz music. The current iteration of the Kari van der Kloot Quintet features a stellar cast of New York based musicians, including Canadian violinist Lisanne Tremblay, Canadian pianist Jamie Reynolds, bassist Gary Wang and drummer Nathan Ellman-Bell. The live show keeps the listeners on their toes, from full-on intricately arranged ensemble playing, to four-part vocal harmonies and intimate dialogues between the voice and violin. Currently based in New York and playing at venues such as Rockwood and Cornelia Street Cafe, Kari’s project is exciting new fans with her highly original music. Kari’s debut album “Seedling” was released in 2016, and her second album “The Architects” was released in 2020 on Outside In Music's Next Level imprint.

Throughout her career, Kari has given many acclaimed performances as a vocalist and pianist in a wide variety of ensembles across Canada, the US and South Korea. She has appeared at many well-loved venues such as Cornelia St Cafe, Rockwood and Williamsburg Music Centre in New York. In Seoul, South Korea, Kari frequently performed at Baekam Concert Hall, Palm and Chicago, and was also a featured performer at the Gangjin International Festival

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
