Watch at facebook.com/asukerr/live 

Janelle Loes is an award-winning singer/songwriter who knows how to spin a song and mesmerize an audience. Her distinctive style fuses elements of jazz, pop and contemporary music, while her sultry melodic voice and narrative style speak to the heart. Her original songs are crafted orchestrations driven by their sweet sincerity and honest lyrics. Poetic, bold, and convincing, her songs delve deep to carefully unearth the light in dark times. An accomplished finger-style guitarist, pianist and vocalist, Loes won the 2016 Tucson Folk Festival Songwriting Competition, was a Top 10 winner of the 2017 Rocky Mountain Songwriting Competition and won the 2010 Chicks with Picks Songwriting Competition.

Her music has received international acclaim, and has been featured in numerous films and TV shows. Her song “Afterthought” was included in the Spanish release "Cappuccino Volume 7" alongside tracks from Sia, Feist and Norah Jones. Loes' debut album "Here and Now" can be found on iTunes, Pandora, Spotify, Google Play Music and more. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona where she is busy booking shows and preparing for the release of her second full-length album produced by GRAMMY-nominated Andy Thompson.

ASU Kerr is a historic Valley venue that is part of ASU Cultural Affairs. Our small staff and facility strive to present a diverse mix of live music, storytelling and theater in order share the unique perspectives of local, national and international artists. World music, indie folk, jazz, soul, baroque pop and more grace our stage each season. We currently produce free live streamed events to give greater access to music and storytelling programs, providing performance opportunities for artists and maintaining the connection between ASU Kerr, audiences, the arts and one another.

We are shouldering unprecedented costs in creating paid performance opportunities for artists that are free to the public during the venue's temporary hiatus. As a self-sustaining venue, our only income streams are ticket sales, rental bookings, concessions and the contributions of donors.

Consider helping sustain ASU Kerr with a donation to the venue. We are doing our best to bring the joy of music and the arts to you in new ways, and hope those able to financially support the venue's mission of Connecting Communities™ will do so. Your help is vital in ensuring that the shows will go on--online for now--and in person once it is safe for us to gather again. 



ASU Kerr is a historic performing arts venue just minutes north of Old Town Scottsdale. We present a thoughtful and eclectic blend of music, storytelling and theatre, and you'll find everything from jazz, Latin and world music to folk, classical and soul sounds here each season. We're so glad you've found us and hope you explore our site and social media.
