||This Much Is True CD (2008) |
Maiysha music CDs Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Maiysha blends jazz and R&B for a soulful, contemporary sound that is equal parts Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, and Erykah Badu. MUCH IS TRUE, released in 2008, was co-written and produced by Scott Jacoby, and elegantly balances its style and substance with strong material, sleek, classic-yet-contemporary soul sound (the production sidesteps the over-processed feel of a vast majority of contemporary R&B releases), and Maiysha's stunning vocal performances. An assured release on every count, MUCH IS TRUE should appeal to fans of quality R&B, vocal jazz, and singer-songwriter fare.
