“Bria Skonberg looks like a Scandinavian angel (or Thor’s girlfriend), plays trumpet like a red hot devil, and sings like a dream.” —Wall Street Journal
BC-bred, Brooklyn-based Bria Skonberg has got it all going on! Carving an innovative path while honouring the sonic lineage of jazz greats like Louis Armstrong and Dinah Washington, her stunning voice, “both soul sultry and innocent sweet” (All About Jazz) shares centre stage with her equally entrancing trumpet work. Fresh and free-spirited, her recent compositions blend soul, world beat, and electronics with her formidable hot jazz and swing chops. With Evan Arntzen saxophone/clarinet, Sean Cronin bass, Dalton Ridenhour piano, Darrian Douglas drums.
