Keren Abreu is singer-songwriter born and raised in the Bronx, NY. Her R&B/soul music is infused with various aspects of her upbringing, including but not limited to her Afro-Dominican background, the many years she spent in church, and her love of jazz and musical theater. She currently lives in Brooklyn, where she writes about family hardship, personal growth, relationships, and themes of identity and self-love. Since embarking on a professional music career in New York City, she’s performed at Harlem’s Silvana, Pianos, The Bowery Electric, Sidewalk Cafe, Rockwood Music Hall, Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory, and many other storied New York venues.
At Yale University, where she received a BA in French, Keren was a member of the Shades of Yale, an a cappella group dedicated to singing music of the African Diaspora and the African American tradition, Whim ‘n Rhythm, Yale’s all-women, all-senior vocal ensemble with whom she performed around the world, and several student bands, including an R&B/pop band she formed and music directed. She was also involved in multiple theatrical productions with the Yale Dramat and the Yale Drama Coalition. With these varied ensembles, Keren has sung for audiences such as President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, and Grammy award-winning Sweet Honey in the Rock. She was also selected as the musical opener for English singer-songwriter Jessie J at Yale’s 2015 Spring Fling
