Incognito
Incognito
Incognito is recognized as one of the best funk/jazz/soul/dance outfits in the world. A pioneer of the "acid jazz" movement who has delighted listeners and dancers for decades, Incognito has scored hits with versions of Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing" and Ronnie Laws' "Always There," selling more than a million records worldwide in the process.

While Maysa is no newcomer to the music scene, her ninth solo CD, Motions of Love, which boasts cameos by the legendary Stevie Wonder and neo soul crooner Dwele, has introduced 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 Incognito’s defining `90s era hits such as “Don’t 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 Austin’s honeyed notes, Maysa should be one of the biggest names in the urban mainstream but instead she’s earned a loyal underground audience.

For Fans Of: Jazz/Funk Music, Jamiroquai, Groove Collective, Rachelle Ferrell, Jill Scott, Lalah Hathaway
Maysa
Maysa
“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’s voice is sublime – down-home funky one moment and elegantly jazzy the next.”- The Dallas Morning News

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

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.
