Nina Richmond

Nina has been passionate about singing her whole life, performing in genres from musical theatre and pop to jazz and blues. During her many years practising law and raising a family, Nina was the featured singer with the Advocats Big Band and the Tokyo Giants, R & B band, as well as the swing band, Atomic Cocktail, and many other smaller formations. She has performed at high-profile events such as the Beaches International Jazz Festival, Eat to the Beat for Willow, the Angel Ball for Providence Centre, AidsBeat, as well as at weddings, parties and book launches. She has appeared at many venues around Toronto, including, The Rex, The Duke Live, The Old Mill, Seven44 Restaurant & Lounge, Gate 403, the Rivoli, Revival Bar, The Pilot and more. Now, with her children grown and the practice of law behind her, Nina has more time to devote to her music. In addition to her other ensembles, she is a member of The Way Back, leading and harmonizing on tunes from as far back as the 60’s, and is the featured vocalist in Fifth Element jazz quintet.

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!
