    BRIA SKONBERG | RISING JAZZ STAR BY DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE 6-9p | $15Bria radiates an energy that is so refreshing to see, and her compositional chops are on par with her ability to swing!- Bucky Pizzarell, legendary jazz guitaristBria Skonberg looks like a Scandinavian angel (or Thors girlfriend), plays trumpet like a red hot devil, and sings like a dream. Her new album, So Is the Day reveals that shes also a very capable bandleader and composer. Will Friedwald, The Wall Street JournalHailing from Chilliwack, BC, and now living in New York City, award winning trumpeter/vocalist/ composer BRIA SKONBERG is poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation. She has earned a 2013 Jazz Journalists Association nomination for Up and Coming Jazz Artist of The Year and is included in DOWNBEAT Magazines Rising Star Critics Poll for 2013.Bria got her start as a professional big band singer at age sixteen doubling on trumpet and has since performed as a bandleader and guest artist all over North America, Europe, China Japan. Since arriving in New York three years ago she has appeared in concert halls and clubs such as Symphony Space, Birdland, The Iridium, and Dizzys among the likes of Nicholas Payton, Anat Cohen, Wycliffe Gordon, Bucky Pizzarelli and Scott Robinson.Bria focuses on innovating while honoring tradition: She has studied with Warren Vache, experimented with fuzz pedals and presented a gig fusing jazz and stand up comedy. Best known for her knowledge of classic jazz and pursuit of worldwide adventure, she is creating a style all her own rooted in swampy New Orleans grooves, featuring world percussion and contemporary soul influenced vocals. Her debut American release, So Is The Day, peaked at #7 on the US National jazz charts and features an all-star ensemble including John Pizzarelli, Victor Goines and Wycliffe Gordon. Released on Random Act Records, 10% of all proceeds go to support the Jazz Foundation of America.She currently tours the world, headlining major clubs and festivals as well as programming music education workshops for all ages.
