BIO Information for Saturday, September 21st


With a career spanning more than 30 years, Maysa Leak, better known simply as Maysa, has collaborated with everyone from Stevie Wonder, Angela Bofill, Will Downing, Jonathan Butler, and so many more. We knew her especially as the best loved of the rotating roster of super-talented vocalists who helped create Incognito’s signature jazz/funk.  It’s no wonder she was the recipient of many awards for her work, including Soul Train’s first Centric Award in 2009, and her first Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Performance for her remake of Nancy Wilson’s “Quiet Fire.” Maysa seamlessly transitioned to a solo career that has yielded 14 highly acclaimed albums and many sold-out live performances, cementing her reputation as one of the best artists working in the game today.

Maysa will be joined with her band featuring Angela Phillips, Troy Burton, Charles Baldwin, Timothy Hutson, Damon Bennett, Carl Cox, Richard Tucker, and Troy Edler


Chelsey Green & The Green Project

With performances often described as passionate, vivacious, electrifying, and innovative, Billboard-charting international recording artist Chelsey Green brings the vibrancy of violin and viola playing and unique, rich vocals to worldwide audiences in a whole new way.  Dr. Chelsey Green and her ensemble, The Green Project, tear down stereotypes of the violin and viola by fusing traditional classical technique with popular favorites and enticing original songs in various genres– including R&B, Pop, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Alternative, Hip Hop, Gospel and more!
