”A bright young singer and guitarist with an ear for music of both folkloric and pop intention.”—New York Times
Chilean triple-threat Camila Meza sings, plays guitar, and composes with a maturity that belies her brief tenure on the New York City jazz scene. Dark undertones subvert her bilingual lyrics otherwise fluttering sweetness and with a delivery dependent on syllabic pluck, Meza performs her words as much as she sings them. On guitar, her improvised lines curl into her Latin rhythms and surface with glimpses of virtuosity. With her quartet, Meza recently released her breakthrough record, Traces, which is picking up critical accolades from the New York Times and DownBeat for its involved compositions portending a major career on the upswing.
