TWO LADIES OF SOUL: OLETA ADAMS & MAYSA
Saturday, October 21
Smooth Jazz NJ presents Two Ladies of Soul: Oleta Adams & Maysa.
ABOUT MAYSA LEAK
From Stevie Wonder’s female backup group to lead vocalist for Incognito. Maysa’s voice – sultry, jazzy and soulful – powered Incognito to international super stardom on a series of albums in the 1990s: “Tribes Vibes a Scribes,” “Positivity,” “100° and Rising,” “Beneath the Surface” and “No Time Like the Future.” Maysa seamlessly made the transition to a solo career that has yielded 14 highly acclaimed albums and sold-out live performances, cementing her reputation as one of the best artists working in the game today. Maysa’s highly anticipated 14th 2023 studio album “Music For Your Soul” is out now, and the single “Runnin’ From Myself” was #1 most added on Smooth Jazz Charts.
ABOUT OLETA ADAMS
Since the runaway success of her 1990 Platinum selling debut album “Circle of One” and the impassioned hit single “Get Here” (which became an unofficial anthem of the 1991 Gulf War), Oleta Adams has inspired a growing legion of fans around the world with journeys of the heart via songs that draw deeply from her roots in gospel, while crossing effortlessly into the realms of soul, R&B, urban, and popular music. Her success was first nurtured by worldwide tours with Tears for Fears, Phil Collins, Michael Bolton and Luther Vandross and was solidified by 4 Grammy nominations and more than two and a half million records sold. Her accomplished performance on the Grand Piano is as astounding as her vocals.
