What does a talented vocalist do after hitting the Billboard Charts, screening music videos worldwide, touring internationally and being featured on national television? Naturally...it's jazz, man.
Jazz vocalist Joshua Klipp has spent the last six years focused on his pop music project, and continues to work with trail-blazing music producer Kristopher Cloud while foraying back into his first vocal love - jazz. In March 2011, Josh released his first complete jazz cd, "Josh Klipp & The Klipptones, Live at Enrico's"! Now, Josh sets out with acclaimed pianist Julie Wolf (Ani DiFranco, Indigo Girls) and Studio Engineer Jon Evans (Tori Amos) to begin work on a tribute album to his jazz muse, the iconic Chet Baker. In Spring 2010, Joshua also re-teamed up with filmmaker Aarin Burch to shoot his music video for "Little Girl" - the track released in 2007 that made music history and was featured on both The Tyra Banks Show and The L Word. In March 2011 this video made it's MTV LOGO Debut at #5 on LOGO's "Click List - Top 10 Music Videos".
A Midwest transplant now living in Northern California, Josh founded and is the Creative Director for Freeplay Dance Crew - a diverse crew of hip hop dancers since 2000. He also provides artistic and technical support for several local dance companies, including Sarah Bush Dance Project, Funk4Soul, and Zari Le'on Dance Theater.
