Canadian singer, trumpeter and songwriter Bria Skonberg is described by The Wall Street Journal as one of the “most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation.”
Also recognized as one of “25 for the Future” by DownBeat magazine, Bria is newly signed to Sony Music Masterworks’ OKeh Records. She released her debut LP BRIA in September 2016, which won a Canadian Juno Award and made it to the top 5 on Billboard. Her second Sony album WITH A TWIST shows another collaboration with producer Matt Pierson, as well as three-time Grammy Award–winner Gil Goldstein.
Noted as a millennial “shaking up the jazz world,” according to Vanity Fair, Bria is a self-described small-town girl from Chilliwack, British Columbia. She left for Vancouver straight out of high school and earned a degree in jazz trumpet performance from Capilano University. But even as she absorbed the deep knowledge and disciplined work habits needed for a jazz career, she was also hustling hard to book her two bands. During school, she juggled working every weekend, traveling to festivals and shows, plus cramming in homework—all while on the road.
When she wasn’t traveling for her own gigs, she was building up her stage-show chops with Dal Richards, Vancouver’s King of Swing. Playing at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver capped off this exciting period, with Bria featured at the Paralympics opening ceremony.
In 2012, Bria released So Is the Day (Random Act Records), her first album on a US-based label. That collection showcased a developing flair for original songs with just the right amount of standards mixed in. It also featured a duet with the legendary John Pizzarelli. So Is the Day received rave reviews from critics, drawing comparisons to Norah Jones. In 2015—a year after her second album Into Your Own was released—Bria received Jazz at Lincoln Center’s “Swing! Award.”
To date, she has performed at some 100 festivals worldwide. She is the co-founder of the New York Hot Jazz Camp and New York Hot Jazz Festival. Further accolades include Best Vocal and Best Trumpet awards from Hot House Jazz Magazine (2014¬–2015), Outstanding Jazz Artist at the New York Bistro Awards (2014), a DownBeat Rising Star (2013–2015) and a nominee fo
