“The next big carrier of straight-ahead jazz’s vocal tradition.” —The New York Times
Jazzmeia Horn’s name is an eerily accurate moniker for a musical prodigy – and indeed, this young singer/songwriter has forged an exhilarating path forward while keeping an ear trained on the classics. Raised in Dallas, Horn attended Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing Arts before moving to New York City. She studied at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music where her talent was encouraged by mentors such as Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln, and Bobby McFerrin. After winning notable jazz competitions in 2013 and 2015, Horn’s 2017 debut album, A Social Call, garnered a GRAMMY nomination; her second album, Love and Liberation (2019) was also nominated. Horn is an NAACP Image Award recipient, and her recently released Dear Love – an album that features big band boldness as well as sublime spoken word – has been nominated for a 2022 GRAMMY for Best Large Jazz Ensemble Album. The album, which was released on her own Empress Legacy Records label, makes history as the first time a female vocalist has composed, arranged, and fronted a big band album in its entirety.
