Jeni Fleming returns to Red Lodge’s Roman Theater for a concert Dec. 17 as part of a regional tour to support her new album, “December.”
Fleming will appear with her five-piece band, composed of Chris Cundy-Hammond on piano, Sean Lehman on bass, Adam Greenberg on drums, Craig Hall on electric guitar, and her husband Jake Fleming on acoustic guitar and saxophone.
The sophisticated and graceful Bozeman-based songstress is heavily influenced by jazz but delivers emotional performances rooted in a variety of genres. On albums her voice soars through a medley of classically based jazz and pop tunes.
Fleming forged her love of music at a young age, singing hymns in a church choir (her father was a Lutheran Pastor and her mother directed the church choir). In addition, Fleming studied classical piano for most of her life.
In Bozeman the musician has a private studio, teaches piano and voice, and is the co-founder with husband Jake of Hand Me Down Some Silver, Inc., an organization offering need-based scholarships for young musicians for music lessons, instruments, and creating professional recording and performance opportunities.
