Thank you for looking at my profile, and look forward to meeting you, hearing your music, and creating collaborations. I'm primarily a jazz singer and flutist, but also play many other styles such as celtic & folk, classical, singer-songwriter, flamenco/latin jazz, plus i've played in grateful dead jam bands - that was fun!
I'm available for studio work, I'll add flute and vocals to your project.

this is some of what people have said about my music:
“She combines playfulness with off-beat jazziness in a way that brings ‘cool’ to a whole new level.”
erika may's 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. Her music is embodied with a fiery world-spirit.
“erika may’s tone is warm and rich, her improvisations wild and free. I’ve worked with her in contexts ranging from Baroque music to vintage dance, to jazz to street bands, and I truly believe she can sing and play anything and give it class”
