Jazzmeia Horn

Biography

Winner of the 2015 Thelonious Monk Competition, vocalist Jazzmeia Horn has a name that speaks for itself capturing her very essence. With an assured maturity and vocal confidence far beyond her years, the young singer arrives with her debut recording on Concord’s Prestige label, A Social Call, an album that reveals a talent ready to take her place alongside the best headlining jazz vocalists of today. A collection of standards, hard bop anthems, spirituals, and R&B nuggets, A Social Call is a reflection on the times. Jazzmeia calls it, “a call to social responsibility, to know your role in your community.” Great story-telling, an inspired message, fluid vocals, scat-singing, and spirited group performances – A Social Call features all one would hope to hear from a veteran vocalist of longstanding reputation. As such, the album serves as a clarion call, proudly announcing the arrival of a young, confident musical talent with a long history ahead of her, blessed with a name that carries its own destiny.

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.

Al Jarreau

Jazzmeia has one of the best voices I’ve heard in over 40 years.
Jon Hendricks

When the legendary Jon Hendricks says a vocalist ‘has one of the best voices I’ve heard in over 40 years,’ that in itself is enough to catch people’s attention. Add to that the fact that she won both the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition and the 2015 Thelonious Monk International Vocal Jazz Competition, and it’s obvious Jazzmeia Horn is a singer to watch out for…With the depth of feeling and personality of Billy Holiday and the virtuosity and playfulness of Sarah Vaughan, the opening few notes that introduce us to Horn’s voice speak volumes to the maturity and talent of the young singer.
