Jennifer Knapp - Dive In

Coming off a seven-year recording hiatus, Grammy-nominated artist Jennifer Knapp has returned with a new album, Letting Go. Recorded in Nashville, Letting Go features intimate folk- and country-tinged rock songs showcasing Knapp's astonishing straightforwardness and spirituality.

The critically-acclaimed Knapp, (The Los Angeles Times called her “a rising star" and People describe her as “an uncommonly literate songwriter,") plays Cafe 939 this Wednesday with guest Todd Thibaud. It promises to be a bright spot in our week.


In what many would consider a controversial but brave decision, a month before the release of Letting Go, the acclaimed musician publicly came out as a lesbian. And as always, Knapp continues to speak openly and honestly. She told Reuters “If there’s any frustration, it’s trying to politely break the yoke of being asked to be something that I just can’t be, and with all humility go: ‘Just please be kind when you discover the truth.’ It’s kinda all you can do.”
