Joey Naz

The history of jazz music in the United States is a history of revolution and liberation. As an artist, musician, and performer I channel this liberation as a means of inspiring people to live their lives to their greatest extents. My work is heavily inspired by the jazz greats of history as well as the hip hop greats who came after and I do not shy away from the roots of my music. Jazz music was created by the Black American Diaspora and as a contemporary jazz musician it is my duty to not only make music that honors and acknowledges that, but also make music that is inclusive to all Black and Brown people. As a queer artist and performer, I aim to bring queerness to the front and center of every performance. All of my art, all of my music, and any space I occupy as a performer will always be a safe space for queer Black and Brown peoples.
