Brenda Kahn is a NYC-based singer/songwriter, famous for her unique lyrics and observations of life. She arose from the anti-folk movement, and her folk-punk flavouring gives her songs that special edge.

Our history: Way back when, you may remember something called the Brenda Kahn Home Page. We were one of the original fan-based Brenda Kahn sites. However, we outlived the web page host who went to parts unknown.

At that time, Brenda Kahn was developing Womanrock, so we thought that was it for her music career. We did not restart the fan site. Five years later, Brenda Kahn is back and working on her sixth album scheduled for release in 2010.

If Brenda can come back, so can we ... but in blog form. We welcome all old and new Brenda fans to the blog.

CD RELEASE PARTY: October 16, 2010

Top 3: BRENDA KAHN
October 13, 2010

In 2003, punky folk singer/songwriter Brenda Kahn took a break from a career that saw her signed to Columbia records as opening for Bob Dylan, The Kinks, David Byrne and Jeff Buckley, moved to the Lehigh Valley, and did something else creative: raised a child.

Then, three years ago, Kahn went to a little studio in upstate New York owned by Grammy-award winning saxophonist-turned-producer Craig Dreyer and started recording what would become her sixth CD, and first in 11 years “Seven Laws of Gravity.”

Funded with fan donations, it combines Kahn’s signature sound and lyrical approach with a sometimes-indie rock, sometimes jazzy feel. Kahn, playing with a full band, will hold a CD-release party Saturday at The Wildflower Café and Gallery in Bethlehem.

8:30 p.m. Saturday, October 16, 2010 The Wildflower Café and Gallery, 316 S. New St., Bethlehem. Tickets: $12, include wine and cheese. http://www.wildflowercafebethlehem.com, 610-758-8303.
