KERENSA GRAY – LIVE

Kerensa Gray – Decades of honing and refining a unique vocal style, multiple recordings and a plethora of stage performances have cemented her reputation as not only a singer, but also a storyteller,composer and teacher. Often compared to jazz royalty, the likes of Ella Fitzgerals, Etta James and songstresses of past generations, she interweaves elements of jazz, folk, blues, R&B and classical to create a sound that is undeniably hers.
Kerensa was born in May, 1973 in the small mountain community of Cumberland, MD. While neither of her parents were formally trained musicians, music was the language that was most fluently spoken in the Hetz household. Rock, blues, folk and classical were the soundtracks to a simple childhood.
At age 9, Kerensa fell in love with the violin and found it in a voice that she longed to explore. Piano soon followed and though she was always singing in church and school choirs, serious asthma seemed to snuff out any dreams of finding her own voice until she reached high school and found encouragement and breath training from her high school choir director. “Other than my father, I owe my voice to my high school choir director, Craig Schutz. He is the one who challenged me to push past what I thought were my limits and instilled in me the importance of constant growth and experimentation.”
After many years pursuing music in the church, Kerensa was encouraged to plunge into jazz. As one who believes in going “all in ” she entered the Billie Holiday Vocal Competition in 2009 to “find out how much I had to learn” and to oher surprise, won the Baltimore, MD based contest. Kerensa followed up that win with her 2009 release of “Let Me Be Me”, a mix of gospel and jazz stylings with the support of jazz guitarist Drew Davidsen. In 2012 she joined Nashville, TN based Creative Soul Jazz producer Eric Copeland to produce “Bliss” and her 2016 offering “Take Me In” and she is currently working with Nashville based producer/arranger, Jason Webb, on her next project. Kerensa currently resides in Waynesboro, PA with her husband, Lee, and their 3 furry children – Treble, Opal and Rico.
