Bria Skonberg has rapidly become a top draw in New York City, and is poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation.Wielding a unique blend of modern-day pop sensibility and sizzling musicianship, Skonberg aims for a sense of allure. Elite Jazz chops, artfully mixed with worldly rhythms and contemporary songwriting result in a sophisticated pop sound closely resembling that of Michael Bublé, Diana Krall, and Harry Connick Jr. “I am so excited to come to Amelia Island and headline the Saturday night October 8 concert,” says Skonberg. “The buzz in the industry about the Amelia Island Jazz Festival is so hot right now that every headliner wants to participate. I am honored I was chosen to perform and I promise to give it my all. Looking forward to meeting all of my fans and also making some new ones!” The AIJF will take place at various locations in Fernandina Beach from October 2 to 9, and will kick off with its annual free concert in Amelia Park on Sunday, October 2.
