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.

Thanks to Ray and Sharon for providing a great place for so many talented artists to do their thing. The music is always top notch, the food is incredible (Scallops w/ Risotto is my favorite), and it's always a great time.

We went to see some live music. There's a pricey cover charge but the music was really good. The food was excellent. Delicious pork loin with cream sauce. Good portion size of antipasto. Wonderful cheeses and salami. Very delicious seafood pasta. The prices were reasonable. We picked a great Italian Amorone wine off the shelf. The corkage was pretty steep, 12.00 given we had appetizers, full dinner and 20.00 cover. But the wine was fantastic and a fair price. Lots of wines from most important wine regions. The shelves are full and the prices fair. We'd definitely return. Service was very good especially given it was a full house. Small venue, quaint and enjoyable.

Close, tightly packed room, but comfortable. Soft lighting, exceptional wine selection. The wonderful, smooth vocalizations of Gail Pettis backed by her talented quartet. Hot and delicious shrimp fettacini paired with a perfect chardonnay. Fantastic. A winner all the way.

Great spot, love the small plate options. Outdoor seating was a great option. My favorite this time was flatbread with goat cheese, figs and balsamic glaze. Yum

They helped make our 8th wedding anniversary so special. Amazing food, excellent cocktails, and such a fun and classy wine shop. I will be coming here more often, and hopefully have time to go see some of the live music soon.

I almost hate to post as this is small and exquisite and I really don't want to share! However, everyone should have this experience; toothsome menu choices just right sized for visiting and music listening. And live music! First time out post covid and I felt like I'd been nervous system detoxed; hallelujah for establishements that are here for us all in the transition time. Thank you to the owners and the musicians!! And saftey is top notch with vaccine proof required; another thank you!
