A unique, instantly identifiable vocal sound encompassing both Jazz and R&B. GRAMMY-nominated, Soul Train Award-winning Soul and Jazz singer, Maysa, celebrates her 28th recording artist in 2019.
Born and raised in Baltimore, she knew early on that she would be a musician. “I was six years old when my mom took me to see Purlie,” she recalls. “When Melba Moore came on stage and sang her heart out, I knew at that moment I wanted to make people feel the way she made me feel.” Maysa’s journey took her from singing upon graduation with Stevie Wonder for a year, to becoming the lead singer for Incognito in the 90s. In 1995 she recorded her first solo album, Maysa, which debuted to rave reviews from critics and listeners alike. She kicked off the summer of 2019 creating her untitled 14th studio album for her brand-new record label, Blue Velvet Soul Records. “I am so proud to release this album myself and for the first time in my life I will own my masters, so I will do everything in my power to make this album my masterpiece. It will be soulful, spiritual, danceable and sensual,” Maysa states.
