The vocal-artist Jazzmeia Horn, from Dallas Texas, undoubtedly is one of the brightest stars on the sky of jazz at the moment.
New rising jazz of star in full speed upwards.
She convinces with her enormous voice, her swinging authority and an incredible musicality. Jazzmeia is mainly focusing on the repertoire of jazz-standards, but she is happy to, shamelessly, do detours to Steve Wonder, Eryka Badu and spiritual soul of the sixties. She is often compared to singers like Nancy Wilson og Betty Carter, and to her great source of inspiration: Sarah Vaughan. Jazzmeia started her career in the choir of her parents congregation in Dallas, but it was discovering Sarah Vaughan that ignited her fire for real, and her love for Jazz music grew. She says herself that at this moment gave her a clear goal in life: She wanted to be a Jazz-singer. In 2013 she won a price at Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, and in 2015 she won Thelonius Monk International Vocal Jazz Competition. The rewards keep flowing in, and her latest album “A social call” from 2018 was nominated for a Grammy. It is, in other words, a must to hear Jazzmeia in Kikkans Hall 18. of July.
