Samara Joy

Presented by Saffron Hall

Tickets from £10

Price includes a commission of £1.00

Praised by the New York Times as the ‘silky-voiced rising star’ of jazz, Samara Joy is a remarkable new talent. With her debut album Linger Awhile, the 23-year-old made 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 millions of likes on TikTok. The New York Times praised Joy for ‘helping jazz take a youthful turn’. She is, perhaps the first Gen Z jazz singing star.

In February 2023, Samara Joy took home two GRAMMYs — Best Jazz Vocal Album and the auspicious Best New Artist award.
