Erika Kertesz

There are plenty of voices on the Hungarian jazz scene, but there’s one that made the Tailor Birds sit up and take notice. Erika Kertész has a throaty, soothing mezzo range and a melancholy sincerity. Her pure intonation, expressive bending of the blue notes and a magnetism that will draw you in, quietly but surely. She’s a perfect Tailor Birds match.

Erika is performing with the Tailor Birds at Antarctica, Taribush Kuna and Arts Carnivale in the Netherlands and at all of the Tailor Birds’ German shows.

Whether she performs for a handful of friends or a room full of strangers, she always puts her heart in and it shows. Her versatility and skill make performing with her an absolute dream.
