Jazzmeia Horn & Her Noble Force
From the venue:
Jazzmeia Horn is "without a doubt among the jazz world's most exciting young vocalistsâ¦her sound is explosive and bright and rich, catnip for audiences looking for boldness that's still traditional" (Billboard).
Winner of both the Sarah Vaughan and the Thelonious Monk vocal-jazz competitions and a 2022 Grammy nominee, she is "a singer who stands apart from many of her peers because she takes on every song she sings so naturally. Jazzmeia is a performer for whom every word, gesture, and ornament becomes an expression of her total conviction and she completely comes alive in the moment" (London Jazz News).
"Jazzmeia Horn harbors both astounding technique and an acute artistic visionâ¦Horn has a thrilling presence with a musical sensibility that strikes a deft balance between midcentury jazz and contemporary neo-soul" (DownBeat).
