About the Artists
San Francisco-based songbird Ashley Wilson’s new album, Paint the Sky, is a thoughtfully produced artisanal blend of jazz pop and country folk. Described as “a nimble collection of atmospheric, jazz-soaked musings that recalls Norah Jones’ sophisticated debut,” Paint the Sky was released on all streaming platforms in March 2019. With training in jazz piano/composition with producer and multi-instrumentalist Arthur Khu, and experience singing jazz professionally in San Francisco, Wilson is equally at home on stage performing as she is writing at her piano and in coffee shops around San Francisco.
Noa Levy is a jazz-rock vocalist originally from Israel, currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area. With the emotional directness of Carmen McCrae—a powerful voice reminiscent of Eva Cassidy—and the playful energy of Anita O’Day, Levy sings with emotional lyricism and magnetic stage presence. She has performed with top-level artists in Israel, including Yoni Rector, as well as recently at SF JAZZ in San Francisco. Noa Levy & the Experts currently has several monthly residencies at San Francisco jazz clubs, including Cafe Claude and Zingari Ristorante & Jazz Club.
