Nancy Erickson has established herself as a vocally creative staple in the Pacific Northwest Jazz scene. Following her 2011 well-received debut CD, Prelude, performances in Japan and around the Northwest, Nancy is making her mark with her sophomore release, While Strolling Through the Park (released January 2016) which delivers mature vocals, three original songs, and some unexpected arrangements of jazz standards. With influences like Nancy Wilson, Frank Sinatra, Dianne Reeves, and Peggy Lee, Nancy Ericksons rich, mellow alto voice has been compared to Karen Carpenter and Diana Krall.
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 began her career in the late 80s singing in a NW jazz band called After Hours. Nancy recorded and co-produced a Christmas CD entitled "Urban Christmas" in 1993 under the group name, 'Xebec'. Taking a break to raise children, she returned to public performing singing backup with the Northwest R&B band Freddy Pink. Nancy also did some backup work with the band Nearly Dan (a Steely Dan tribute band) and Bernadette Bascom.
In 2009 Nancy returned to her jazz roots; "Id been singing other styles in various bands, but when I came back to jazz singing I remembered where my heart lies musically." Nancy Ericksons passion for jazz music is demonstrated in her pin-drop ballads and the rapport she has with her band and the audience.
