Erin Krebs

Erin Krebs is a dynamic performer 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 has been recognized by WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) as a nominee for 2016 Female Vocalist of the Year.

Erin grew up in Southern Wisconsin, where she showed a love of music at an early age- singing on table tops at age 3. A few years later, she started playing flute and other woodwinds. Erin attended UW-Oshkosh, where received her Bachelor of Music Education Degree in 2003. She taught music in private schools from 2004-2014, and is currently focusing on her career as a vocalist. Erin also maintains a private studio where she teaches woodwind, piano and voice lessons.

Erin often works in a duo with her partner, guitarist Jeff Johnston. With 30 plus years of performing, he has developed a well-traveled musical fluency that compliments Erin’s extensive repertoire and songwriting style. Together, Erin and Jeff are able to provide a dynamic and versatile musical experience. While she primarily works with Jeff, Erin has a Jazz group, and sings in Jeff’s blues band. She is featured with the Water City Jazz Orchestra, as well as The Jazz Orgy. Erin’s debut album, Love Always Wins, was released in June 2016.
