Jeremy Siskind

There is a classic intimacy to the piano, sax, vocals of the Jeremy Siskind’s Finger-Songwriter. Siskind’s piano is a mix of elegance and storyteller charm. The slow burn of Nancy Harms’s vocals is an enchantment oftentimes dispelled with a smoldering vulnerability. On sax, Lucas Pino is drifting smoke, and on clarinet, a brooding melancholia. Siskind’s love of literature the inspiration for each album track, he’s created an album of songs about heartbreak, loss, and hope, delivered with a warmth and immediacy that brings the late-night jazz club to the listener.
