Perspectives: Samara Joy

Saturday, 20 April 2024, 8.00pm

Praised by the New York Times as the 'silky-voiced rising star' of jazz, GRAMMY Award-winning Samara Joy makes her NCH debut.

With her GRAMMY award winning album Linger Awhile, 23-year-old Samara Joy makes her case to join the likes of Sarah, Ella, and Billie as the next mononymous jazz singing sensation, recorded by the venerable Verve Records. Her velvety yet precociously refined voice has earned her fans like Anita Baker, Regina King, Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson, along with appearances on the TODAY Show, The Tonight Show, The Late Show, CBS Morning, in addition to millions of likes on TikTok — cementing her status as perhaps the first Gen Z jazz singing star.

The New York Times praised the Joy for 'helping jazz take a youthful turn', while NPR All Things Considered named her a 'classic jazz singer from a new generation.' In February 2023, Samara Joy took home two GRAMMYs — Best Jazz Vocal Album and the auspicious Best New Artist award.
