Jazzmeia Horn was described by the New York Times as “a jazz vocalist on the rise” who “uses a striking command to project a mix of didacticism and sweetness.” She won the 2015 Thelonious Monk International Vocal Jazz Competition and the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition.

A native of Dallas, Texas, Horn moved to New York in 2009 to attend the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. She quickly became a regular presence on the New York jazz scene, performing with artists such as Billy Harper, Delfeayo Marsalis, and Mike LeDonne. Earlier this year, she released her debut album, A Social Call, on Concord Records. She performs nationally and internationally with her band, the Artistry of Jazz Horn.
