Mondavi Center Presents
Grammy Award winning rising jazz vocalist makes her Mondavi Center debut.
Samara Joy is having a capital-M Moment. In 2023, the young jazz singer from the Bronx earned two Grammy Awards for her first album, Linger Awhile—including a well-deserved win as Best New Artist. But Joy’s resonant, emotionally stirring voice makes accolades afterthoughts. Like all great jazz singers, she gets inside every song she sings, breathing new nuance and life into standards like “Misty” and “’Round Midnight.” She’s also garnering millions of likes on TikTok, making her a Gen Z influencer. However you hear her, once you do, it’s likely to be the start of a beautiful and long-lasting musical relationship.
When Samara Joy sings, the world stands still. Tension vanishes, shoulders relax, serenity seems within reach.
