Artist Conversation with Jazzmeia Horn
Jazz vocalist Jazzmeia Horn and Cal Performances Executive and Artistic Director Jeremy Geffen discuss how her name came about, what drew her to scat singing, her strategy of including both standards and original compositions on her albums and why she started composing her own music, how she approaches her career as the CEO of a female-owned business and brand, and so much more in this Beyond the Stage artist talk.
