Acclaimed vocalist Lauren Kinhan celebrates the release of her new CD Circle In A Square on Thursday, Jan. 30 at Upstairs at Vitello's in Studio City. She performs with pianist Martin Bejerano, bassist Edward Livingston and drummer Jake Reed.

Kinhan is best known for her ongoing two-decade tenure in the internationally renowned New York Voices, she has steadily established herself as a powerful composer in her own right.

Following up on her acclaimed 2010 album Avalon, she offers an emotionally incisive and melodically enticing set of new songs on Circle In a Square, which was release on Jan. 7 on Dotted i Records.

Long recognized as a poised and penetrating musical interpreter, Kinhan focuses on telling her own stories with songs seasoned by life and the contributions of some of jazz's most evocative improvisers.

"Twenty-five years ago I up and moved from my cozy Columbus Avenue apartment in Boston and departed for the mystery and magic of Gotham," Kinhan says in a press release. "Those were ambitious days, full of hard knocks, slinging beers as a waitress, gigging and discovering my musical path. Fast forward to today: I wanted to mark this milestone with a body of work that incorporates all the things I've learned along the way."

Upstairs at Vitello's is located at 4349 Tujunga Ave. Kinhan's set starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $20. Go to http://vitellosjazz.com or call 818-769-0905 for more information.
