Canadian singer, trumpeter and songwriter Bria Skonberg has been described by The Wall Street Journal as one of the “most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation.” Recognized as one of “25 for the Future” by DownBeat magazine, Skonberg wields a unique blend of modern-day pop sensibility and sizzling musicianship, both curious and exotic. Elite jazz chops, artfully mixed with worldly rhythms and contemporary songwriting result in a sophisticated sound that has been compared to Norah Jones and Diana Krall. With more than 100 festival performances under her belt and many accolades, including Best Vocal and Best Trumpet awards from Hot House Jazz Magazine, Bria is here to shake up the jazz world with a fresh batch of golden standards and playful originals.
