With a fitting name for her chosen path, vocalist Jazzmeia Horn was born in Dallas in 1991, grew up in a tightly knit, church-going family filled with musical talent, and began singing as a toddler. She attended Booker T. Washington High School for Performing and Visual Arts, known for launching such musical greats as Roy Hargrove, Norah Jones, and Erykah Badu, then later attended The New School in New York City. Winner of the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Competition and the 2015 Thelonious Monk Institute International Jazz Competition, Horn was then signed to Concord Records and released her debut album A Social Call to great critical acclaim.

In the years since the GRAMMY-nominated A Social Call, she’s been busy on the road, honing her vocal skills to a finely tuned level, writing songs of personal relevance and social message, and perfecting a fearless approach to improvisation and performance in general. The convergence of this drive and development has resulted in what has brought Horn her second GRAMMY nomination with Love and Liberation – an album filled with songs of daring musicality, emotional power, and messages of immediate relevancy.

Horn states, “Love and Liberation is a concept and mantra that I use consistently in my everyday life. For me the two go hand in hand and they both describe where I am in my life and career right now. An act of love is an act of liberation, and choosing to liberate—oneself or another—is an act of love.”

Horn’s new album, Dear Love, is her first big-band effort and is a recording that brims with assured delivery and spoken world segments, deft arrangements, and fiery musical ideas.
