Ellen Winters

Award winning jazz vocalist Ellen Winters "is a rare find," according to San Fransisco producer Phil Schroeder. Apparently, readers of Milwaukee's Arts and Entertainment paper, The Shepherd Express, agree with Schroeder. In the 2004 & 2005 "Best of Milwaukee" reader's choice awards, Ellen walked away with "BEST JAZZ ARTIST" honors and runner up status in 2004 as "Best Female Vocalist"-a category that includes all genres. Her debut CD release "Pure Imagination" also garnered top honors in 2004 as the "BEST LOCAL CD."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
