Jazzmeia Horn takes jazz singing seriously. As a winner of the 2013 Sarah Vaughan Vocal Jazz Competition, followed by a victory lap at the 2015 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition, Ms. Horn announced her arrival in a big way. Her career saw the kind of ignition young artists dream about.
Honoring her Texas gospel roots, Jazzmeia presents a voice and identity onstage that embodies true conviction. She possesses a soft sound, coupled with the means to deliver lines with lightning speed, often in the service of improvisational scats informed by trumpet players such as the great Clifford Brown.
