Nancy Erickson- Jazz Vocalist 2012 Seattle-Kobe Jazz Vocalist Winner
“A skilled singer who is also an excellent songwriter…Ms. Erickson has an appealing tone, does justice to lyrics and swings.” – Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene
“Nancy Erickson belongs on the same page as many of the best in jazz vocals.” – Les Reynolds, Indie-Music.com
“Nancy Erickson deserves our very close attention as a fully-formed artist, one of our best contemporary singers.” – Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives
Nancy Erickson has been bringing her rich, melodic vocals to the Pacific Northwest Jazz scene for over 3 decades. Hailed as “one of our best contemporary singers – full of feeling, wit… and a thoroughly winning originality” (Michael Steinman – Jazz Lives), Nancy released her third solo CD “Nancy Erickson – Here & Now” in August, 2018 featuring the musical skills of the 200 Trio (Greg Feingold, Cole Schuster, Max Holmberg) and Alex Dugdale.
With influences like Nancy Wilson, Frank Sinatra, Dianne Reeves, and Peggy Lee, Nancy Erickson’s rich, mellow alto voice has been compared to Karen Carpenter and Diana Krall. Ms. Erickson began her career in the late 80’s singing in a NW jazz band called After Hours. She has since released 4 albums, the first of which was a Christmas CD entitled “Urban Christmas” in 1993 under the group name, ‘Xebec’, followed by her solo debut album (after a break raising children) in 2011 “Prelude”, then “While Strolling Through the Park” in 2016.
Her most recent album “Here & Now” was recorded live by KNKX jazz radio host Jim Wilke. In 2012, Nancy won the Seattle Kobe Female Jazz Vocalist Competition. This resulted in performances in Kobe, Japan, including Asahi Hall which was also broadcast live online to over 5,000 viewers. Nancy’s passion for jazz music is demonstrated in her pin-drop ballads and the rapport she has with her band and the audience.
She has performed at the North Sea Jazz Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, and opened for Ernestine Anderson, Mark Murphy, the Hi-Lo’s, The Four Freshmen, and sang backup for R&B band Freddy Pink, Nearly Dan, and Bernadette Bascom. Her recent venues in Seattle include North City Bistro, Tula’s Jazz Club, La Spiga Restaurant, Seattle Jazz Vespers, and the Royal Room.
Nancy Erickson teaches private voice, is the choral & jazz band II director at Glacier Peak High School & choral director at Valley View Middle School in Snohomish, WA, and is a board member of Seattle Women in Jazz.
