Kyra Gordon is a jazz & blues vocalist known for her soulful tone and captivating stage-presence.  Originally from Oakland, CA, Gordon's mischievous and searching spirit comes through both in her songwriting and in her witty stage banter.  She is a founding member of the Bay Area hip-hop collective “The Freeze,” sings lead and plays keyboards for the original funk project “Captain Input,”, performs monthly solo shows at San Francisco’s Rite Spot, and lends her talents to indie films. Gordon was the first vocalist to graduate from the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley.  Driven by a sense connection to female artists of the 60s and 70s, she is in the midst of creating a new show that will debut at Ashkenaz in August 2019 as part of the programming for the 50th anniversary of Woodstock:  “Loving Janis: the music of Janis Ian and Janis Joplin”.
