Grammy-nominated jazz singer poised for greatness, with titanic vocal skills and creative drive.
“A singer who stands apart … every word, gesture, and ornament becomes an expression of her total conviction and she completely comes alive in the moment.” —London Jazz News
A young jazz singer poised for greatness, Jazzmeia Horn wowed an international audience with a fiery “Moanin” at the 2018 Grammy Awards ceremony. With titanic vocal skills, creative drive and inspired scatting, she takes charge of each song’s musical and storytelling potential. Her debut album, A Social Call, is a sophisticated collection of fresh, in-the-moment reworkings of inspirational jazz standards, hard bop anthems, spirituals and R&B nuggets. Accompanied by a small ensemble, Horn delivers what she says is “a call to social responsibility, to know your role in your community.”
