“The close precision and frothy power of her voice stand out immediately…so does the depth of her comfort within the jazz tradition.”—New York Times

With her two recent Grammy Award-winning albums, Bronx native Samara Joy has rocketed to fame and quickly joined the likes of Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holiday as the next great jazz singing sensation. Her voice—rich and velvety, yet precociously refined—has helped “jazz take a youthful turn” (New York Times) by introducing her massive young audience to a slew of classic standards several times older than she is. Through her timeless, irresistible sound, she has already become a “classic jazz singer from a new generation” (NPR).
