An Evening With Jennifer Knapp
Grammy-nominated and Dove Award–winning artist Jennifer Knapp returns from a seven-year hiatus with her new album, Letting Go (Graylin/RED/Thirty Tigers). Recorded in Nashville, Letting Go is produced by Paul Moak (Mat Kearney, Martha Wainwright, Amy Grant) and features 10 intimate folk- and country-tinged rock songs showcasing Knapp's astonishing straightforwardness and spirituality.
Knapp's impressive history includes selling more than 1 million albums with her previous releases Kansas (debut 1998), Lay It Down (2000), and The Way I Am (2001). The Kansas-born musician toured the globe with artists such as Jars of Clay and was featured on 1999's Lilith Fair tour. Knapp received critical acclaim, with the Los Angeles Times calling her "a rising star" and People describing her as "an uncommonly literate songwriter." Knapp went on to win her first Dove Award in 1999 for Best New Artist, and scored a Grammy nod in 2002.
With a considerable fan base, and critical and commercial successes, Knapp walked away from it all at the height of her career. After seven years of soul-searching and time spent in Australia, Knapp comes full circle in 2010 with a new album, new tour, and a renewed love of music.
