The Critic’s are Buzzing About Maysa

“Maysa’s voice is sublime – down-home funky one moment and elegantly jazzy the next.”- The Dallas Morning News

“…To die for…. warm, welcoming vocal tone and cool ear mesmerizers” – Philadelphia Daily News

“Maysa Leak’s sensual, rangy and enticing voice always emerges triumphant.” - Nashville City Paper

“One of the most identifiable and consistently enjoyable singers in underground soul.” - Jazziz Magazine “Maysa's voice is as smooth and as rich as chocolate...its pure, perfect tone is gorgeous and caresses with a languorous sensuality."-Blues And Soul Magazine

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. The Baltimore has recently released her tenth recording as a leader and fifth for Shanachie Entertainment, Blue Velvet Soul. “ I hope the people who have been supportive of me through the years will enjoy this new music. That is all I can ask for!”

With the recent resurgence of soul singers, Maysa’s organic, down-home, jazzy and bluesy approach is the essence of what people have been searching for. She is authentic and music is her truth. “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.” Blue Velvet Soul features a reinvention of a familiar classic, the Johnny Hammond composition “Quiet Fire,” inspired by Nancy Wilson’s version. A special highlight on the new CD is Maysa’s gift as a composer. Eight of the album’s fifteen tracks feature her original songs and in true Maysa no holds barred fashion, she pours her heart and soul into every note. Blue Velvet Soul includes the uplifting duet with friend Bluey from Incognito, “Good Morning Sunrise,” the sultry “Sophisticated Lover,” where Maysa woos us in the language of love and the sublime meditation Maysa wrote for herself “Inside My Dream.” The past year has been a difficult one as Maysa lost her dearest friend, her mother. “She made me promise to keep going no matter what,” shares the singer. “I was able to continue with my live shows in almost a robotic state but when it came time to create. I was lost. I finished this record with God’s help and a little help from my friends.
