Featuring two up-and-coming artists in one night, Bria Skonberg and Kate Davis join us to showcase their extensive musical abilities, from their unique vocal stylings to their instrumental chops on trumpet and bass. Hailing from British Columbia, Skonberg has earned acclaim as a singer, trumpeter, songwriter, and bandleader. Her sultry voice, paired with original compositions, is a love letter to the innovation and progression of jazz. The first part of tonight’s show features a set by her eponymous quartet. Since graduating from the Manhattan School of Music, Davis has released three albums and accumulated fans by the performance. This young bassist, singer, and songwriter has a level of poise and confidence that exceeds her years, yet the contemporary styles infused in her sound make Davis unique. Her trio will keep the good times going for the second half of the set.
