Marmite Records and Nicole Heitger are excited to announce the release of her first solo album “Blue Spring”. Nicole’s powerful yet sensitive voice shines on this 16-track album that includes 13 jazz standards and 3 New Orleans Dixieland style traditional songs. The jazz standards are backed by the dynamic rhythm section of Northwest Ohio native Eric Dickey (piano), Ann Arbor bassist Paul Keller, and Ann Arbor drummer Pete Siers. The two New Orleans Dixieland songs are backed by long time Toledo favorites The Cakewalkin’ Jass Band.

Ms. Heitger has been a vocalist for over twenty years. She was raised on traditional jazz amid the influence of her father, Raymond, who has been the leader of the Cakewalkin’ Jass Band for over 40 years. She began singing with the Cakewalkin’ Jass Band when she was sixteen years old, performing at various concerts, jazz festivals, and jazz clubs. Nicole also has performed with the Toledo contemporary swing band Satin and Brass, the Easy Street Jazz Band from Ann Arbor and New Orleans Party Asylum (NOPA). Nicole also had the distinct privilege of honing her jazz standard vocal style with the Murphy’s in downtown Toledo.
