In 2016, Jazziz Magazine wrote that Erin Krebs “may be a best-kept secret of her native Wisconsin”. It seems the word is out, as this dynamic performer is well on her way to becoming one of Wisconsin’s premier and most treasured vocalists. Ranging from sultry jazz stylings to bebop scat to belting out the Blues, her performances exude confidence and a passion for life that audiences instantly recognize as genuine and heartfelt. Recently, Erin was awarded the WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) Female Vocalist of the Year for 2019 and in 2018 the Erin Krebs & Jeff Johnston Duo was recognized as the 2018 Jazz Artist of the Year. Erin was also a nominee for Female Vocalist of the Year (2016, 2017, 2018) and Jazz Artist of the Year in 2017.
