Jazz & blues singer Nina Simone of North Carolina started at the classical piano, singing to keep her education going. If you sift through her songs over the early years look for influences like Johann Sebastian Bach in her piano work! With a great voice she became one of our heartfelt blues & jazz singers. The civil protests of the 60’s loomed and entered her work (but did not completely take it over – the ballads of everyman’s heart are still there).
