Jana Nyberg

Jana Nyberg is a vocalist, flautist and educator from Minneapolis, MN. She appeared on Season 10 of American Idol, and has released three full-length albums to date. Known for her expressive and soulful approach, she effortlessly shifts between genres. A sought- after performer and recording artist, Nyberg has collaborated with Gigamesh, The Adam Meckler Orchestra, Jason Peterson DeLaire (Michael Bolton), Unus, Rass Kwame and others. On stage, she brings a vibrancy and passion that is infectious and ignites her audiences. The Jana Nyberg 5, which will release Nyberg's fourth full-length album in 2017, pushes small ensemble vocal jazz to the modern edge with exciting interpretations of well-loved standards and obscure gems alike.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
