She is the most awarded female vocalist in the history of SoulTracks Readers’ Choice Awards, with seven (!) trophies. And Maysa Leak has meant all that and more to her fans over a thirty year career, both as part of supergroup Incognito and as a solo artist.
More recently, Maysa has added another title to her name: music entreprenuer. For several years she has independently been releasing one fantastic single after another under her own Blue Velvet Soul imprint, and now she has issued her first full album for the label (and 14th overall), Music For Your Soul.
Music is an ambitious project, with 19 songs and a bevy of great collaborators. But at the center of it all is this one-of-a-kind talent who (to borrow a sports term) has “bet on herself,” leaving nothing out by issuing a tremendous, far-reaching album that is reminiscent of the transcendant double albums that filled many of our youths.
We’re proud to present Music For Your Soul as our Album of The Month for April. Check it out below, and welcome Maysa back to SoulTracks.
