WATCH: Bria Skonberg Live At The Triple Door

Bria Skonberg developed her love of jazz in Chilliwack, B.C., and earned a JUNO Award for her 2016 album Bria. Skonberg’s sharp, lyrical trumpet work is equaled by an ebullient singing style and a stage presence that commands your attention.

She has a love of traditional jazz, co-founding the New York Hot Jazz Festival in 2013, but ears for modern music and a remarkable ability to blend the two. Down Beat magazine has named Skonberg a “rising star” four years running, and we’re expecting more great things – including a new album sometime this year. Watch her performance from last year at The Triple Door in Seattle, Washington now.
