Award-winning trumpeter and vocalist Bria Skonberg is, in the words of The Wall Street Journal, “poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation.” An artist deeply committed to the New Orleans “hot jazz” tradition filtered through contemporary influences, the Chilliwack, British Columbia native began her musical life as a big band vocalist (doubling on trumpet) at age sixteen and studying with trumpeter and swing veteran Warren Vaché. Skonberg traveled the world with veteran guitarists Bucky Pizzarelli and Horward Alden and formed groups in Canada including Bria’s Hot Five, The Big Bang Jazz Band, and the all-female Mighty Aphrodite Jazz Band.
Since arriving in New York, Skonberg’s profile has risen steadily with a New York Bistro Award for Outstanding Jazz Artist and a Swing! Award bestowed by Jazz at Lincoln Center. Her 2012 Random Act Records release, So is the Day, hit #7 on the Billboard jazz chart, and her latest Sony Masterworks album, 2017’s With a Twist, celebrates the music and artists who have inspired her most, featuring an all-star lineup including Gil Goldstein, Sullivan Fortner, Scott Colley, and Matt Wilson.
