Lori Jenaire is emerging dramatically on the music scene, rapidly carving
her niche in the world of neo-jazz/soul. The name and sound of this Chicago
native may not be familiar to you, but various projects which have been
blessed with her creativity,have taken the entertainment industry by storm.
Jenaire has been paying her dues for the last decade with live and studio
background gigs, opening dates for top entertainers and shows in night clubs
and jazz festivals across the Country.
In addition to being an accomplished vocalist, Lori is an outstanding songwriter
and a talented musician who is skillful on guitar, bass and piano. In fact, along
withseveral national advertising jingles , for Coca-Cola, GE, and United Way, it
is her voice we hear as the featured vocalist on Stanley Clark’s soundtrack for
the movie.“Funny Valentines” starring Alfre Woodard and Loretta Divine. In her
T.V. debut, her persona and music was featured on the Emmy award winning
PBS documentary “Colores” and in the hit comedy/drama “Girlfriends”.
Bolding stepping in the footprints of, Phyllis Hyman, Anita Baker and yes, Sarah
Vaughn even, Lori Jenaire’s presence, a statuesque 6-foot-tall beauty with
scintillating vocals, conjures up images of divas from an era past.
With her sophomore release, aptly titled, “Fruition,” on NBE Records, Jenaire
co-writes the majority of the album and takes the jazz/R&B world by storm with
her remake of the Mamas and Papa’s smash ‘California Dreamin’. Since
Fruition’s release, she has consistently been on the R&R Jazz Indicator charts
steadily climbing from her debut at No 26 and reaching No 7 on the Smooth
Jazz.com indie chart.
Radio & Records Magazine’s Carole Archer describes Jenaires’ California
Dreamin as “a swingin’ and sultry version, that delivers big time”.
Her debut on the Dance/Club scene produced a smash remix of “You Know
How to Love Me” achieving Bullet status on the Billboard top 20 Dance Charts
and Grammy consideration.Lori Jenaire is the voice of yesterday, fused with
today, culminating into tomorrow.
