Maysa’s most recent release, “Blue Velvet Soul” is her tenth solo album and is a perfect description of her music. Her music is smooth yet powerful, soulful, lush, hypnotic, ethereal, and eclectic. There’s a warmth and intensity to it that keeps you in sync, yearning for more. Maysa’s voice, a beautiful, distinctive instrument, is much the same. She’s a singer’s singer and one of the best in the industry today. She, like Nancy Wilson, Angela Bofill, and Phyllis Hyman, is a uniquely gifted song stylist and interpreter. She’s able to use music to connect with her audience on a much deeper level. There’s an endless love of her art that flows through her music. You cannot help but be touched by it, especially when you experience her live.
Maysa realizes the power of music and the role she plays as a singer-songwriter-producer. She says, “I am a storyteller, a counselor and a friend that helps others through the good times and bad through my music. It’s important for me to connect with the audience because it’s my God given job.” And she does it, effortlessly, with each album and every performance. Every ounce of her heart and soul goes into her music. There’s nothing phony or contrived about it. It’s honest, authentic music. And it’s a testament to her 20+ years in the industry and the love and loyalty of her fans and peers.
Happy Birthday Maysa! May there be many more years of life, love, prosperity, and enchanting music! We thank you for blessing us for so many years with your amazing gifts. Here’s to you!
