“Jazzmeia has one of the best voices I’ve heard in over 40 years” -Jon Hendricks
Jazzmeia Horn is arguably one of the most exciting new vocalists in jazz today. With stunning vocals, soulful sensitivity, and vibrant onstage presence, Jazzmeia has rapidly gained a reputation as an artist of assured maturity and vocal confidence. In 2018, her debut album “Social Call” was nominated for a Grammy Award as “Best Jazz Vocal Album” and she won the “Up and Coming Musician of the Year” from the Jazz Journalist Association.
‘The most talked-about jazz vocalist to emerge since Cécile McLorin Salvant and Gregory Porter… she’s possessed of a sassy tone in the highest register and an array of nonverbal sounds that add drama, hinting at meanings in the music that go beyond what fits on the page.’ New York Times
The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra is delighted that Jazzmeia has accepted our invitation to join us in three exclusive concerts and we look forward to welcoming her to Scotland for the first time.
“Jazzmeia Horn IS the future of Jazz!” – Larry Rosen
“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
