1993 Kiki Ebsen – Red

Red is the debut album by Kiki Ebsen, released in 1993.

Kiki Ebsen (born January 14, 1958) is a singer/songwriter/keyboard player from Southern California. She has performed and toured nationally and internationally with many award-winning musicians, including Boz Scaggs, Al Jarreau, Christopher Cross, and Tracy Chapman. From 1994-2012 she released five solo CDs, issuing her sixth CD, Scarecrow Sessions (Painted Pony Media) on September 30, 2014. The result of a successful Kickstarter project, the Scarecrow Sessions album is a collection of jazz standards, a tribute to her father, Buddy Ebsen’s, life and career. Today, Ebsen divides her time among writing, recording and performing music, and works with rescued horses, developing educational programs with her California nonprofit organization, The Healing Equine Ranch.
