Just 25, the Dallas-born Horn emerges as a fully realized stylist and a first-rate scatter whose vivacity, imagination, gutsiness and sociopolitical savvy echo the likes of Carter and Abbey Lincoln. Simply put, she is as exciting a discovery as Cécile McLorin Salvant or Gregory Porter.

GRAMMY nominee and Winner of the 2015 Thelonious Monk Competition, vocalist Jazzmeia Horn has a name that speaks for itself capturing her very essence. With an assured maturity and vocal confidence far beyond her years, the young singer arrives with her debut recording, A Social Call, which was nominated for a GRAMMY Award and voted the best jazz vocal debut in the 2017 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll. A collection of standards, hard bop anthems, spirituals, and R&B nuggets, A Social Call is a reflection on the times and is destined to be remembered as a 2017 breakout.
