Samara Joy

October 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

With her Grammy Award-Winning Verve Records debut, Linger Awhile, 24-year-old Bronx native Samara Joy has positioned herself to join the likes of Sarah, Ella and Billie as the next mononymous jazz singing sensation recorded by the venerable label. The winner of two 2023 Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Jazz Album, Samara Joy’s rich and velvety, yet precociously refined voice has made her the first Gen Z jazz singing superstar, with appearances on countless television shows, millions of likes on TikTok, and sold out shows around the world.

In 2024, Samara won a third Grammy Award for her take on the Betty Carter classic “Tight” and is currently in preparation for her full-length follow-up album. The New York Times praised the “silky-voiced rising star” for “helping jazz take a youthful turn,” while NPR All Things Considered named her a “classic jazz singer from a new generation.” Samara will be accompanied by seven instrumentalists, including piano, saxes, brass and bass.
