Trombonist and composer Adriana Wagner draws inspiration from a wide array of influences, combining traditional and modern jazz sounds with fragments of salsa, R&B, and indie. Her original compositions weave styles together under a decidedly jazz banner, submerging the listener in visionary storytelling. As a performer, Wagner uses lyrical elements to create melodies combined with a soft, rich tone that can resonate above or become immersed within the composition’s harmonic structures.
Based in Portland, Oregon, she graduated from the Jazz Program at Portland State University in 2022. She was selected for the Young Jazz Composers program, highlighted by an in-depth article from Oregon Arts Watch. Wagner was recently named one of the inaugural recipients of the Music Oregon Echo Fund grant to help create her debut album. She performs with The 1905 Orchestra, Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble, Pura Vida Orchestra, Brown Branch Big Band, The PDX Jazz American Refrain, and more.
