“Poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation.”-
The Wall Street Journal
Vocalist, trumpeter and songwriter Bria Skonberg has been recognized as one of “25 for the Future” by DownBeat magazine and Vanity Fair cited her as a Millennial “Shaking Up the Jazz World.” On her new OKeh/Masterworks album With a Twist. she spins her cool and confident vocal style—and her sleek and timeless jazz chops—into a program that playfully nods to tradition while always looking ahead. Her debut LP, BRIA, which was released in 2016 won the 2017 Canadian Juno Award (Canada’s version of The GRAMMYs®) for “Vocal Jazz Album” of the year. A self-described “small town girl” from Chilliwack, British Columbia, Skonberg hightailed it to Vancouver straight out of high school and earned a degree in Jazz Trumpet Performance. To date, she has performed at some 100 festivals worldwide.
This performance is at Panama City campus.
