With a voice as smooth as velvet, Samara Joy’s star seems to rise with each performance. Following her winning the 2019 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, she began recording her debut album, the self-entitled, Samara Joy. Growing up in the Bronx, music was a pervasive presence due to the inspiration of her grandparents who led a well-known Philadelphia-based gospel group and her father who toured with the renowned Gospel artist Andrae Crouch. Samara’s first exposure to jazz was while attending Fordham High School for the Arts, eventually winning Best Vocalist at JALC’s Essentially Ellington competition. Just 21 years old, Samara has already performed with jazz greats such as Christian McBride, Pasquale Grasso, Jon Faddis, Kirk Lightsey, Cyrus Chestnut, and NEA Jazz Master Dr. Barry Harris.
