Originally from Chilliwack, BC Canada, Bria has been a bandleader and guest artist all over North America, Europe, China and Japan. Best known for her knowledge of classic jazz and pursuit of worldwide fun, she is creating a style all her own rooted in swampy New Orleans and blues with swing, pop and world music influences.
“This fresh-faced 27-year old trumpeter and vocalist brings considerable chops and charm to a venerable heritage” – Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
