In 2016, Jazziz Magazine wrote that Erin Krebs may be a "best kept secret of her native Wisconsin.", however, the word is out. In 2019, Erin was named "Female Vocalist of the Year" by WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) and in 2018, the Erin Krebs & Jeff Johnston Duo was named "Jazz Artist of the Year" by WAMI. Each year, more and more music lovers are finding out about this talented, genre-crossing duo, but fans in the Fox Valley have been enjoying their music for over a decade.
The pair met in 2006. Jeff's soulful, blues-inspired guitar playing influenced Erin toward the blues while Erin's polished, improvisatory Jazz style persuaded Jeff to learn more about Jazz. Throw in their other influences in R&B, Rock, Soul, and Pop and you have something truly unique. Erin's songwriting is much like her influences, and spans the genres of Jazz, Blues, and R&B. Jeff's skilled guitar playing is the perfect compliment to what Erin is singing- whether it's a heartfelt ballad, an uptempo swing tune, or a bawdy blues.
