Jennifer Knapp

Jennifer Knapp began performing contemporary Christian music and her albums Lay it Down  and The Way I Am were nominated for Grammies.  After extensive recording and touring, Knapp took a hiatus from music in 2002.  By 2009 she was ready to write and sing again—but not in the Christian music industry. According to an Amazon editorial review, “While her transition away from Christian music and public coming out as a lesbian have made her a lightning rod for controversy, Set Me Free [2014] is an album full not of anger but of love, with intimate arrangements providing the backdrop for stories of romance, friendship, and faith. Coinciding with the release of her candid memoir Facing the Music: My Story on Howard Books/Simon and Schuster, this refreshing new album once again demonstrates Jennifer s uncompromising willingness to be open in the spotlight.”
