Grammy-nominated vocalist Maysa has remained one of the most instantly identifiable voices in R&B and Jazz over the past 25 years by staying true to her musical vision. “I look for soul in a song,” explains Maysa, who launched her musical career as a member of Stevie’s Wonderlove and who has been a long-time vocalist with the explosive UK Jazz/Funk sensation Incognito.
On May 26, 2017, Maysa will release her 13th recording as a leader and ninth for Shanachie Entertainment, Love Is A Battlefield. Maysa joins forces with producers Chris “Big Dog” Davis, The Heavyweights and Jason Miles and re-imagines a handful of R&B gems like BabyFace’s Top 10 Tevin Campbell hit, “Can We Talk,” The Isley Brothers’ 1970s slow jam “Footsteps In the Dark,” Natalie Cole’s 1975 #1 hit single “Inseparable” and Luther Vandross’ timeless “Because It’s Really Love.” Maysa also delivers surprises like the album’s title track and Pat Benatar’s Gold-selling 80s cult classic and Justin Bieber’s hit single featuring Big Sean “As Long As You Love Me.”
“I sing mostly positive, uplifting and loving music and lyrics. I am an artist who enjoys being close to the people who support my music. It’s about the connection to people and helping someone circumvent the craziness of our world.” ~ Maysa
Maysa shares about the CD’s first single, “The reason why I chose ‘Love Is A Battlefield‘ is that it has a lot to do with the way the world is today and all of the things we are going through as a people. As humans, we are surrounded by people who are not choosing love first. People are choosing money over love and compassion. To me, ‘Love Is A Battlefield’ is just that, a battle to allow love to reign over everything.”
