----- BIO -----
Recognized as one of 25 for the Future by DownBeat Magazine, Bria Skonberg has been a force
in the new generation with her bold horn melodies and smoky vocals, and adventurous concoctions of classic and new. Originally from Chilliwack, British Columbia, Bria moved to New York City in September of 2010 seeking challenge and adventure. Bria was signed to Sony Music Masterworks in 2016 and released her debut LP, Bria, which won a Canadian JUNO award and made the Top 5 on Billboard jazz charts. Her second Sony album, With A Twist, released in 2017, features an ambitious large ensemble orchestra. Her take on Leonard Cohen’s “Dance Me To The End of Love” has garnered over 1.7 million streams. Her curiosity as an artist has led to an eclectic repertoire and unconventional performances. In the last year, Bria has performed the music of Louis Armstrong, Aretha Franklin, and recently sang the Star Spangled Banner at Madison Square Garden for a New York Rangers game. She has appeared at the prestigious Newport Jazz Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and over a hundred more.
