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.”
