Maysa – Blue Velvet Soul

Maysa holds unique status in the world of R&B/Jazz. Her incomparably lush, sensuous vocals have garnered her legions of loyal, loving fans. As featured vocalist of the UK super group Incognito, core member of Stevie Wonder’s Wonderlove and, of course, through her own albums and concerts, Maysa has been thrilling R&B and Jazz audiences for decades.

Blue Velvet Soul is far and away the most sensuous and heartfelt recording of her brilliant career. Maysa thrills us with a stirring rendition of the Mariah Carey classic “I Still Believe” and her version of “Quiet Fire” a loving tribute to her mentor and role model Nancy Wilson that will leave you breathless!

A special highlight is the guest vocal appearance and soulful production by Jean Paul “Bluey” Bluey Maunick , the creator of Incognito, who contribute 3 originals to this. R&B super producer Mike City (Rihanna, Jamie Foxx, Ledisi) contributes several brilliant originals to the mix, and Chris “Big Dog” Davis (Kim Burrell, Will Downing, George Clinton), Maysa’s longtime collaborator and inspiration, round out the inspired supporting cast!
