"The next big carrier of straight-ahead jazz’s vocal tradition."
The New York Times

"Without a doubt among the jazz world’s most exciting young vocalists… her sound is explosive and bright and rich, catnip for audiences looking for boldness that’s still traditional."
Billboard

"Jazzmeia Horn harbors both astounding technique and an acute artistic vision… Horn has a thrilling presence with a musical sensibility that strikes a deft balance between mid-century jazz and contemporary neo-soul."
DownBeat

"Not only a vocalist, but a musician with big ears, and wisdom beyond her years."
Al Jarreau

THE APTLY NAMED JAZZMEIA HORN IS THE REAL DEAL: A NATURAL JAZZ SINGER WITH A VIRTUOSO’S COMMAND OF MUSICALITY UNCOMMON IN ONE SO YOUNG. THE DYNAMIC DALLAS NATIVE HAS WON A TEXAS-SIZED HELPING OF CRITICAL ACCLAIM AND PRESTIGIOUS TITLES IN RECENT YEARS, SUCH AS: 2013 WINNER, SARAH VAUGHAN INTERNATIONAL JAZZ VOCAL COMPETITION; 2015 WINNER, THELONIOUS MONK INSTITUTE OF JAZZ INTERNATIONAL JAZZ VOCAL COMPETITION; AND THE 2017 NPR MUSIC JAZZ CRITICS POLL AWARDED HER THE BEST JAZZ VOCAL DEBUT. HORN’S 2017 DEBUT ALBUM “A SOCIAL CALL” WAS NOMINATED FOR A 2018 GRAMMY AWARD IN THE CATEGORY OF BEST JAZZ VOCAL ALBUM.

IN JANUARY 2018, HORN’S SUPREMELY CONFIDENT PERFORMANCE OF “MOANIN’” IN A TRIBUTE TO THE LATE NEA JAZZ MASTER JON HENDRICKS AT “THE 60TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS” WAS A SHOWSTOPPER THAT EARNED HER A STANDING OVATION FROM ENTERTAINMENT WORLD STARS WHO NOW SING HER PRAISES. IT’S NO WONDER JON HENDRICKS HIMSELF ONCE SAID, “JAZZMEIA HAS ONE OF THE BEST VOICES I’VE HEARD IN OVER 40 YEARS.”
