Tia Fuller

Trumpeter Arnetta Johnson discovered the trumpet a dozen years ago as a "band geek" at Creative and Performing Arts High School in Camden, NJ, and went on to study at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Mentored by both Jill Scott and Tia Fuller, Arnetta blossomed from her first professional gig with the Unity Community Center's (UCC) Little Jazz Giants, to being the featured trumpeter on both Beyoncé Formation and On The Run II tours.

May 28, 2018.  Powerhouse saxophonist Tia Fuller has always been about jazz. Even when she visited Philly as a touring member of Beyoncé’s all-female band, she would take jazz gigs in town, or hit a jam session. She’s worked with the cream of the crop in the jazz world as well, and the talent that appears on her new album, Diamond Cut, proves just that.
