2022 Songwriter Showcase: Presenting Kemi Adegoroye

We are thrilled to announce the return of our Songwriter Showcase honoring D.C.’s thriving music scene by introducing exciting local artists to new audiences. This year’s powerful collaboration features dynamic singer-songwriter Kemi Adegoroye, at the newly revamped Penn Social Concert Hall on Saturday, August 13, at 7:30pm.

Get a glimpse behind the a cappella curtain with back-to-back performances of an original song by Kemi, followed by the world premiere of a new version – arranged for voices only. The program will also feature a vibrant variety of rock, jazz, R&B, pop, and more, as both artists share the stage in a celebration of songwriting.

Tickets are available for $20. More info available here!


Kemi Adegoroye is a singer-songwriter, actress, and producer based in the DC Metro Area. Her artistic career spans multiple disciplines and genres, from jazz and soul to musical theatre and pop. With versatile vocals that range from dulcet to thundering, her performances have been likened to those of Aretha Franklin, Sarah Vaughan, and Roberta Flack. She performs regularly as a solo artist and as the frontwoman of DC-based jazz and soul band Terra Firma. Her recently released debut EP For The Record is her first album of original music, and also earned Kemi a spot as a 2022 Wammie Awards Finalist.

This project is supported by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
