On November 2005 The Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning presented works of Queens’ Women Composers/performers from Billie Holiday to Julie Mandel. Kemp participated as pianist and vocalist in the debut performance of her lush and outstanding “First Awakenings Jazz Ballet,” and a performance with the Carol Sudhalter Astoria Jazz Band.
Along with performing and composing, Kemp has been an active member of the David I. Martin Music Guild. Inc. She has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and ASCAP, among other organizations. The New York Times has commended her for having "an unusually sensitive understanding" of her art!
In January 2007, Ms. Kemp was featured in Chicago jam-session scenes with Sean Penn, in the Woody Allen film Sweet and Lowdown, which was included in “Essentially Woody” At the Film Forum Movie House.
