Nancy Erickson Lamont, a seasoned jazz vocalist who studied with the renowned jazz instructor Frank DeMiero, has been leaving her mark on Seattle's music scene for over three decades. Her impressive vocal range, lush alto, and distinctive approach to the jazz tradition have captivated audiences and earned her a reputation as one of the city's most engaging and natural vocalists. Come January 2024, Nancy unveils her fourth studio album, Through the Passages, produced by the acclaimed Grammy-nominated vocalist and producer Johnaye Kendrick.
Featuring an array of jazz talent, including lauded pianist-composer-bandleader Josh Nelson (Natalie Cole, Sara Gazarek), pianist Shawn Schlogel, bassists Chris Symer and Michael Glynn (Cory Weeds, Dave Grusin), and drummer Stefan Schatz (Jon Hendricks, The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra), Through the Passages is a contemplative collection of original songs exploring life’s miraculous and mysterious seasons. Nancy’s first record of originals, written in collaboration with Schlogel and pianist Darin Clendenin, Through the Passages draws its lyrics from poems Lamont has written throughout her life.
Through the Passages features her wistful, immersive stories of new love, motherhood, aging, and the state of the world, propelled forward by Nancy’s nimble vocal stylings and her tight, masterful band. As each vignette sails life’s currents, Nancy’s artistry and heartfelt storytelling invites listeners to lean into a rich, disarming sonic world.
