The Housewarming Project is a jazz trio that moves with the grace of a chamber ensemble and sings with the soul of the singer-songwriter movement. The group is led by award-winning pianist Jeremy Siskind, who – armed with a Master’s in English Literature from Columbia University – began writing music and lyrics inspired by poets like Jorge Luis Borges, Seamus Heaney, and Derek Walcott. The first collection of songs, which deal with love and loss, horror and heartbreak, are movingly delivered by vocalist Nancy Harms and colored by woodwind master Lucas Pino on the 2012 release, Finger-Songwriter.
Their 2015 release, Housewarming, added guest vocalists Kurt Elling, Peter Eldridge, and Kendra Shank. The album received a four-star review from Downbeat magazine, who raved that the album provides “a shining example” of chamber jazz.
