Awarded "Most Influential African American in the Bay Area" in 2005 and "Best Jazz Group" in 2013, vocalist Kim Nalley is already being called "legendary" and "a San Francisco institution." No trip to San Francisco is complete without seeing her perform.
With an international reputation as one of world's best jazz and blues vocalists, she has graced concert halls from Moscow to Lincoln Center. A true Renaissance woman, Kim has also been a featured writer for JazzWest and SF Chronicle's City Brights; shortlisted for a Grammy nomination; a produced playwright; a former jazz club owner; an accomplished stage actress; a Ph.D. candidate in history at UC Berkeley; and an avid lindy hop and blues dancer.
Her many philanthropic endeavors include founding the Kim Nalley Black Youth Jazz Scholarship.
Ms. Nalley has performed globally, including major jazz festivals such as Monterey, Umbria Jazz and Lincoln Center. She lived in Europe for several years before returning to San Francisco.
