Kiki Ebsen is an award-winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who has built an exciting career as a main stage performer, recording artist, and sought-after keyboardist. Kiki’s solo shows include a diverse collection of beloved songs that feed the heart, body, mind, and soul… an evening of entertainment you won’t want to miss. Her originals songs cover a broad range of styles… jazz, R&B, folk, pop, country and rock, and she often includes some songs from her Joni Mitchell Tribute Project.

Her latest CD, “Fill Me Up” was released in 2020, and prior to that, she released “Red,” and “The Beauty Inside,” which have earned acclaim from international reviewers and peers alike. Kiki’s CD, “Scarecrow Sessions,” is a collection of jazz standards taken from her father’s early movies and musical productions. This album ultimately led Kiki to write and co-produce a full-stage production called “To Dad with Love: A Tribute to Buddy Ebsen, which includes songs and stories from the record.

Kiki has toured with Grammy-winning and Platinum-selling artists including Chicago, Christopher Cross, Tracy Chapman, Boz Scaggs, Al Jarreau, Namie Amuro, Michael McDonald, and Wilson Phillips, among many more. In 2020, Kiki initiated a weekly livestream, “The Songwriter’s Living Room,” from her Healing Equine Ranch, which still continues to keep audiences engaged and uplifted throughout the COVID lockdown. For more on Kiki, visit: www.kikiebsen.com
