      Just what my heart needed. I know it was a fan favourite night, but it still felt like it was carefully put together. I love the back stories, I love everything about this. Thank you!

      Absolutely wonderful as always. From Jenn's amazing voice to the great conversation with other fans. Always such a great atmosphere. Because of her sharing her story and journey with us, Jennifer's concerts leave us all with appreciation and love. And occasionally new friends .

      What was your favorite part of the performanceThis is me : http://theinvisiblejournalist.wonderwriter.net/2016/11/jennifer-knapp-laying-it-all-down.html I know Jen was asking about ideas for 2nd Tuesdays. I think with this specific audience group (these are the very devoted fans), it doesn't matter about a specific format. I think, and I am being objective here, this group enjoys the flexibility of the open conversational venue and intimate concert feel over anything. I think that's what they want over a rigid schedule. I think if she said, I will be here until 9:30, I will talk more or less, depending on what works tonight, that would work. She could just do an open request night. She could cover about 5 songs and talk more, if that's the way the evening was going. I think being flexible around the fans is optimal. Another idea was that maybe she could do songs that are not on the albums. She could do crash and burn songs that she just didn't love. She could do silly songs she made up but never shared- -these are the things that die hard fans love.. they want to feel like they are on the inside somehow... She could ask the audience to suggest a word and they could create a silly or serious song together. This just helps to foster that bond audiences already feel. Covers are good, but they are not as personal to these fans that are literally tattooing the songs on their bodies.. LOL. Or perhaps, fans could suggest wacky covers and that could be done spontaneously in the concert moment.. the leisure suit moment was a big bonding silly moment for audiences last night. Another idea that came to mind, is when she sings the last song, tell the audiences. When she finished she just cut off the camera and it felt like the venue just dropped off. We felt kind of lost. We need that encore feeling or a chance to say goodbye in a sense. Those of us that came feel that connection and that's what's important. We want to feel we can give back (too). Oh, I thought it was cool when she talked about seminary. As a journalist that really wanted to write a profile piece on her, I wanted to hear more about those goals, those dreams, etc. I know it's tough in that venue because you never know who is going to say something that's not appropriate. It's hard to be on stage and juggle those questions.. I get that....And, I thought it was neat when she shared a bit about going to FL today. We can think this morning that our favorite artist is like all of us, getting on a plane and starting an early day. Those details were neat to know. Things like that made us feel like we got to be somehow inside of her little world too. OK. Hope that helped. I tried to be as objective as possible. If there's ever anything else I can do, like write a profile piece or anything of service, let me know. I teach HS English online full time, have flexible hours, and I don't need the pay. I just like to give back to artists that inspire me. Thanks so much. The concert was a huge blessing and significantly impacted my week. Thanks Jen. :) hashtag I leak, Reagan ?

Award winning singer-songwriter Jennifer Knapp has an impressive history including selling over one million albums with her previous releases Kansas (debut 1998, Gold-certified), Lay It Down (2000), and The Way I Am (2001). She is the winner of 4 Dove Awards and has received 2 Grammy nominations. The Kansas-born musician toured the globe with artists such as Jars of Clay and was featured on the Lilith Fair Tour in 1999 and again in 2010.  Knapp received critical acclaim with The Los Angeles Times calling her "a rising star" and People Magazine describing her as "an uncommonly literate songwriter."
With a considerable fan base and critical and commercial successes, Knapp walked away from music in 2002 at the height of her career.  After a seven-year hiatus she returned in 2010 with a renewed passion for music showcased in her album Letting Go, which debuted at No.73 on the Billboard Hot 200 Chart. Solidifying her return to a music career set on her own terms, in 2014 she released Set Me Free, on Righteous Babe Records.
Knapp’s earthy rock sound and catchy melodies are accompanied by poetic lyrics that paint her songs with candid emotions. She has an honest and straightforward style that has justifiably earned her comparisons to Sheryl Crow, Natalie Merchant and Melissa Etheridge.
