Jazzmeia Horn won the 2015 Thelonious Monk Vocal Contest and the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Competition. She is a natural who grew up in a family passionately rooted in gospel music; her grandmother, a jazz-loving pianist, gave Horn her name.
Time proved her Grandma right-
Since moving from her native Dallas to attend the New School, Horn has fully embraced and become a symbol of the New York jazz scene. Just the last 3 months of 2017 took her from Brooklyn to Bogota, South Korea, China, London, San Diego and the Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy.
Her evolution from New York musician to festival-hopping jazz star happened quickly and is reflected by the success of her debut album, A Social Call, which quickly surged to Billboard’s Top 10 Jazz Albums upon its release.
