“Ms. Skonberg has become the shining hope of hot jazz, on the strength of a clarion trumpet style indebted to Louis Armstrong, a smooth purr of a singing voice inspired by Anita O’Day, and the wholesome glow of youth”—New York Times

Singer, trumpeter and songwriter Bria Skonberg has been described as one of the “most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation” (Wall Street Journal). Recognized as one of 25 for the Future by DownBeat magazine, Skonberg has been a force in the new generation with her bold horn melodies, smoky vocals, and adventurous concoctions of classic and new. Her debut LP, Bria, won a Canadian JUNO award, made the Top 5 on Billboard jazz charts, and was praised by Vanity Fair for “shaking up the jazz world.”
