Nancy Harms
Born and raised in Minnesota, Harms relocated to New
York City in 2010. She has toured Europe multiple
times since 2011, taking her to France, England,
Norway, Italy, The Netherlands and Denmark. Nancy’s
NYC appearances have included her own shows at
BIRDLAND, DIZZY’S-LINCOLN CENTER, SMALLS
JAZZ CLUB, THE KITANO, 55 BAR, and several
others. A Manhattan appearance in the famed
METROPOLITAN ROOM in which she premiered her
show entitled "ELLINGTON AT NIGHT" was reviewed
by Stephen Holden the NEW YORK TIMES, who
described her as "...[an] enigmatic woman of mystery
forging her own path". In addition to her own CDs
“DREAMS IN APARTMENTS”, “IN THE INDIGO”, and
“ELLINGTON AT NIGHT”, she appears on WYCLIFFE
GORDON’S disc “HELLO POPS” and on JEREMY
SISKIND’S releases “FINGER-SONGWRITER” and
"HOUSEWARMING". Nancy appeared in the 2014
PITTSBURGH JAZZLIVE FESTIVAL and headlined a
stage at the 2015 COPENHAGEN JAZZ FESTIVAL
and the Festival de jazz de Québec (2016 and 2017
editions). One of her self-penned tunes from the
"Dreams In Apartments" album ("Weight Of The
World") placed 3rd in Popjazzradio.com's international
listener poll of top jazz tunes with over a million votes.
Nancy’s latest recording, “Ellington At Night” received a
four-star review in DOWNBEAT Magazine (“Harms is
an original...a truly special voice and style.... A fresh

approach to a stimulating 12-track program of mostly
Ellington compositions.”) and the CD Release concert
for this disc sold out two shows at legendary “Dizzy’s
Club Coca-Cola” in NYC’s Lincoln Center. “Ellington At
Night”, has been her most successful album yet,
surpassing her earlier recorded efforts in sales and
airplay, breaking into the American radio Jazz Weekly
charts, and ultimately earning a special distribution deal
with Gaya Productions in France for nation-wide
promotion and distribution.
The album, as well as her accompanying “Ellington at
Night” concert performances, have earned her
excellent reviews including those from the NY Times,
Downbeat, New York Jazz Record, and others. Nancy
has now celebrated her “Ellington at Night” CD release
(in addition to the prestigious “Dizzy’s” at Lincoln
Center in NYC) with performances at Hollywood’s “E-
Spot Lounge”, the “Elgar Room” in England’s famous
Royal Albert Hall, and top Paris jazz venue “New
Morning”.
