Since moving back home to the Twin Cities in 2008, Jana has become a force in the jazz scene. With an appearance on season 10 of American Idol, and the release of her second full-length album, Fever, Jana is moving forward in a full head of steam. Known for her unique blend of jazz and pop music, she is a sought after performer and recording artist. On stage, she brings a vibrancy and passion that is infectious and ignites her audiences. With two records to date and a third set for release in Winter of 2012, she shows no signs of slowing down.
Jana has the pleasure of performing regularly with “The Jana Nyberg Group” and “Out From Inside.” She has also enjoyed performances with the Adam Meckler Quintet, pianist Josh Rawlings, and has recorded with Indie-Dance icon Gigamesh. She has been featured as a guest artist at the UW Eau Claire Jazz Festival, with the UW Green Bay jazz singers, and with the Bethel University Jazz Orchestra. You can hear Jana most extensively on her band’s debut self-titled album released in 2008, and on her August 2011 release, “Fever”.
