(WTNH)–Connecticut native, Nicole Zuraitis is living her best life, singing and songwriting.
She says her parents gave her free reign to explore a lot of things and she settled on music.
She and her musician husband, who live in Brooklyn, New York were nominated for a Grammy this year for their arrangement of Dolly Parton’s song, Jolene.
Zuraitis started out in Opera at NYU and then veered toward jazz, where she shines.
She’s as down-to-earth as they come and credits a lot of what she learned to teachers in Connecticut.
Her goal is to continue to sing around the world; she just returned from Lithuania where she sang with a naval orchestra.
If you attend the Litchfield Jazz Camp, you just might have her as an instructor.
