Neighbors


Neighbors is a jazz/pop duo based out of Charleston, SC featuring vocalist, Gillian Kohn, and guitarist/vocalist, Chris Dodson.

With an extensive background in musical theater, Gillian studied classical voice at the College of Charleston, and method acting at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute in New York City. Inspired most by the Great American Songbook, however, Gillian’s heart belongs to jazz.

Chris, an accomplished, highly-regarded performer within the Charleston music scene, has consistently entertained audiences since 2005. A longtime student of the acclaimed jazz guitarist, Lee Barbour, Chris just recently released his first original album in December 2017.

Neighbors was formed one late November day in 2017, when Gillian and Chris, who are literally next-door neighbors, bonded over a shared love of music. With a varied repertoire spanning from popular jazz standards to Bossa Nova and contemporary hits, the pair are well-suited to intimate gatherings, weddings, and corporate events.
