Vashon is an island characterized by its natural beauty and uniquely rich arts scene. Running through its verdant forests, bucolic pastures and majestic vistas is a spirit that inspires musicians to call this place their home.

One guitar tells the stories of some of our Island’s most talented musicians, challenging them to create an original song in one week. Each week, this one guitar is passed to the next musician, creating a lineage that connects each musician and each song. We all have different stories to tell, but music brings us together.

Since her arrival to Seattle in 2008, international jazz vocalist Jennifer Kienzle has emerged as a singer adept at conveying a direct and honest interpretation of the American songbook. Jennifer is known for her purity of tone, playfulness with song and easy rapport with her audience. Influenced by the greats such as Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae and Dianne Reeves, Kienzle has an attention to detail that employs both intuition and careful study and, whether performing her own arrangement of a song or singing on a standard form, her own sound is evident to the listener.
