“We’re totally in love with this young performer”
KJ grew up in a small town on the border of Wisconsin and Illinois. Her dad has been in music since before she was born traveling both domestically and international. She started singing at a young age, and her first stage was a small church in Gurnee, IL. After that debut, there was no getting her off the stage. She sang at many churches locally, and then went on to win Chicago Idol and a couple of karaoke championships. She then took her talent over to Belarus and Ukraine on a tour. KJ is a true believer in letting music speak when words fail. Lyrics are important and always will be. KJ’s favorite philosophy in life is a quote by Wayne Gretszky, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” With that philosophy in mind, she recorded her first EP this year with grammy-nominated producer Steve Freeman and a very talented band including Tommy Harden(Drums-Reba, Lee Brice, Kip Moore), Mark Hill(Bass, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Lady A), Tom Bukovac(Electric Guitar-Keith Urban, Jake Owen, Tim McGraw). She is currently doing shows in the Chicago area, and is a co-lead vocalist in the band Transformation.
