Kemi Adegoroye is a singer-songwriter, actress, and producer based in the DC Metro Area. Her artistic career spans multiple disciplines and genres, from jazz and soul to musical theatre and pop. With versatile vocals that can range from dulcet to thundering, her performances have been likened to those of Aretha Franklin, Sarah Vaughan, and Roberta Flack. She performs regularly as a solo artist and as the frontwoman of DC-based jazz and soul band Terra Firma.
On Valentine's Day 2020, Kemi released her first original single, The Man Who Stole the Moon, inspired by the 2010 movie Despicable Me starring Steve Carell. A year later, she became a 2021 Wammie Awards Finalist for the release of The Man Who Stole the Moon. Her recently released debut EP, For the Record, is her first album of original music, inspired by her lifelong love of Motown, jazz standards, and Broadway-style storytelling.
