erika may ~ jazzy hippie chick / her music is described as avant garde, jazzy,with an emotionally strong voice that has been compared to Norah Jones, Blossom Dearie, and Ricki Lee Jones. Her songs are imbued with stunning creativity like Bjork and Florence and the Machine, she writes compelling lyrics like Joni Mitchell, and her music is embodied with a fiery world-spirit.

erika may has an eclectic mix of edgy and deep music flecked with jazz, folk and various world influences. Her songs are described as having soaring, lyrical melodies in emotionally driven performance which creates a dynamic experience.

Whether it’s singing jazz standards, Spanish songs, & originals, improvising on her flute, accompanying herself on guitar and/or cello as a solo act, or swinging with jazz combos as both a leader and a sideman, or performing on flute in classical duets with piano or guitar, or being “in the band” with Americana/pop groups as a singer and flutist, erika may brings her personal flair, professionalism, and a loving joy of the music to each performance.
