Winner of Best New Artist and Best Jazz Vocal Album at the 2023 Grammys.

Audience Favorite

Samara Joy brings fresh purpose to jazz with her distinct style, charm and dexterity. Her deeply emotive, rich and irresistible sound compels listeners to “focus on the purity of her tone and the purity of the music” (DownBeat). With her classic style that evokes Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, Samara Joy follows in the tradition of these greats. Don’t miss one of music’s newest stars performing live at Symphony Center.
