Samantha Wright on the HR* Clarinet 8

"It's said that the clarinet is the closest sounding instrument to the human voice, which is a quality I find paramount while composing and performing music. I love JodyJazz mouthpieces because they really allow me to express myself fully without any resistance, and create a multitude of sounds and colors that honestly reflect the music I want to share. I had never considered changing my set up until I tried JodyJazz."

Samantha Wright is a clarinetist, composer, researcher and educator based in Hamburg, Germany. Her distinctive sound on the clarinet is reminiscent of the jazz clarinet predecessors, but also deeply personal and unique. Since 2019 she has been part of the jazz department at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater, Hamburg, where she teaches jazz clarinet and directs seminars in transcription and analysis. She has performed as a guest soloist with leading ensembles, big bands and symphony orchestras across Europe, and regularly presents her research at conferences and workshops internationally. In 2021, Samantha released her debut album: “How About Now”, receiving critical acclaim worldwide.

Her latest band IVYMIND dances between the lines of improvisation, melodic interplay and soundscapes, engaging with popular songs as well as new compositions, with the goal of creating honest music.
