As a pupil of Ella Fitzgerald and winner of an international singing competition named after Sarah Vaughan, Samara Joy has numerous artistic merits to show. The vocal specialist Will Friedwald writes about her: «People are forever using the word 'timeless' as if it were the greatest praise ever, but in a way, Samara’s voice and her music seem to belong to all time, like she’s connected to the entire history of jazz all at once - as if she were existing in every era simultaneously, she sounds both classic and contemporary.» Samara Joy grew up with gospel music (her grandparents led the well-known Philadelphia-based gospel group, The Savettes). She discovered jazz during her studies, where hearing Sarah Vaughan's version of «Lover Man» was a real turning point in her life.
