Kymberly Jackson began her quest for the perfect union of musician and instrument at an early age. After experimenting with the clarinet and drums, she discovered her musical soul mate in the flute.
Born and Raised in Los Angeles, California, Kymberly (aka "Kj") began classical training at the age of 12 and continued to master the instrument throughout her formal education. As a graduate of prestigious Mills College in Oakland, California, receiving her Masters in Music, Kj was afforded the opportunity to study under world-renowned Classical flautists, Angela Korregelos and Priscilla Call.
Kymberly has honed her musical gifts from Beethoven to Hip Hop with ease and fluidity. Her versatility and ability to move successfully between urban contemporary, smooth jazz, and classical techniques makes her one of the most sought after musicians in the industry. In addition, she is an educator having taught music and theory to elementary school through college students.
Kj performs and records throughout the San Francisco Bay Area (and beyond) with some of the world’s most well known Jazz and R&B artists. Her stage and recording companions have included: Gerald Albright, Jeff Lorber, Donnie Osmond, Stevie Wonder (see the Hotter Than July album liner notes), Karen White, Dwayne Wiggins, Pete and Juan Escovedo, El DeBarge, Norman Brown, Ricardo Scales, Walter Beasley, The Gap Band, HipHop activist Boots Riley and the Coop, and Kev Choice - among many others. However, it is in her capacity as a solo artist that Kj (with her band Urban Legends) truly demonstrates her genius as a dynamic entertainer, instrumentalist, vocalist, and composer. In 2010, Kj and Urban Legends played to thousands of delighted San Francisco and Oakland Pride celebrants. Her Jazz Funk Fusion skills had Yoshi's standing-room-only audiences on their feet, and she regularly ignites crowds at concerts, clubs, and private events.
