The Lithuanian-American Who Won a GRAMMY for Best Vocal Jazz Album

Nicole Zuraitis' Grammy-winning album

Lithuanian Jazz/Pop singer/songwriter/pianist/arranger/teacher Nicole Zuraitis just won a GRAMMY for Best Vocal Jazz Album: "How Love Begins" I've been following and listening to her for years in New York jazz clubs -- she knows me as the person who yells out "Labas!" when she comes onstage (which, one time, completely embarrassed my daughter). Congratulations, Nicole!

Nicole Zuraitis is a GRAMMY winning and 2X GRAMMY-nominated New York-based bandleader and winner of the prestigious 2021 American Traditions Vocal Competition Gold Medal. With a “heart as big as her remarkable voice,” (Jazz Police), Nicole has positioned herself as one of the top artists and "prolific songwriters" (Broadway World) to watch in jazz and beyond. Zuraitis currently teaches at the vocal faculty at New York University, and at the jazz vocal faculty at the State University of New York at Purchase. She is a Jazz Vocal Instructor at Litchfield (CT) Jazz Camp.

Her upcoming schedule:

Her Lithuanian background: Her paternal grandfather Danielius Zuraitis and his parents immigrated to the United States in 1909, but she has never forsaken her Lithuanian roots and loves to participate in various events organized by Lithuanians in the USA.
