Horn is a part of the Emerging Artist Series. Horn won the 2015 Thelonious Monk Vocal Contest and the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Competition. She is a natural who grew up in a family passionately rooted in gospel music; her grandmother, a jazz-loving pianist, gave Horn her name. Time proved her grandma right. Since moving from her native Dallas to attend the New School, Horn has fully embraced and become a symbol of the New York jazz scene. In the last three months of 2017, Horn traveled from Brooklyn to Bogota, South Korea, China, London, San Diego, and the Umbria Jazz Festival in Italy. Her evolution from New York musician to festival-hopping jazz star happened quickly and is reflected by the success of her debut album, “A Social Call,” which quickly surged to Billboard’s Top 10 Jazz Albums upon its release.
