KJ Denhert performs online, Thursday, February 9, 7-8 PM ET for our Inside the Song Series – a concert/interview hybrid. We are so excited for you to experience KJ Denhert’s music. It is like the colors of a painting mingling to create a unified landscape and composition that we want to get lost in. Don’t miss this one!
Inside the song is a peek into the artist and songwriter’s mind during the act of creation. It’s an opportunity for fans/music lovers and songwriters to glean a deeper understanding of the back stories, the judgements, the skill set, and the guidelines that influenced the artists we admire in making the songs we love. Tina Ross, host of the series, and a singer-songwriter herself, will guide us all through an hour of music. You will get to ask your questions in the comment section during the show.
Inside the Song is the second Thursday of every month. Attendance is free. Free-will donations are requested and go entirely and directly to the performer.
