Maysa is the kind of singer who takes hold of a song and enraptures her audience in the palm of her hands, as she delivers lyrics, phrases, melodies and harmonies in a way that only she can. Blessed with an instantly identifiable honey-toned mezzo-soprano and an undeniably brilliant and magnetic stage presence, Maysa's alluring vocals, candor, humor and purity as an artist make her a rarity in this business. Having collaborated with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan to Incognito and Angela Bofill, Maysa can hang with the best. It is no wonder she is the recipient of Soul Train's "Soul Approved Underground Singer" Award.


While Maysa is no newcomer to the music scene, her ninth solo CD, Motions of Love (Shanachie Entertainment) that boasts cameos by the legendary Stevie Wonder and neo soul crooner Dwele, promises to introduce the veteran soul and smooth jazz vocalist to the widest audience of her career. She first gained fame as the featured voice on British acid jazz band Incognitos defining `90s era hits such as Dont You Worry About A Thing, Still A Friend of Mine and Deep Waters. She then launched a concurrent solo career with the hits Am I Wrong (For Lovin You), Friendly Pressure and Hypnotic Love. With a sultry alto on par with Phyllis Hyman and Patti Austins honeyed notes, Maysa should be one of the biggest names in the urban mainstream but instead shes earned a loyal underground audience.
