"Soulful but not forced..."
IT START WITH -
I want my music to be timeless
“Expect Miesa to make her mark as a new female R&B/pop contender to watch,” Yahoo Music says of the passionate artist with an undeniably melodic sound reminiscent of the great singers from the early 90’s, when vocal prowess was the driving force behind the music. “I want my fans to feel the music the way that I do,” says Miesa. “I’m in love with harmonies and backgrounds that give music different dynamics. I just want people to experience what’s in my heart and understand my passion.”
Hailing from South Jersey, her musical background is deeply rooted in family ties, growing up in a household that played, sang and harmonized as if it was breathing – so innate that she never even considered that music would be her ultimate calling until she could no longer deny it. Early on, she learned to sing and play several instruments, including guitar, piano and clarinet, “My father plays all sorts of instruments really well, and while singing in church I was being exposed to an eclectic variety of musical styles.” With gospel, R&B, soul and funk music being played around the house on any given day, her Haitian and Filipino heritage added shades of calypso and kompa to the mix. By the age of seven, she was already in the studio, recording music professionally.
As the years passed, Miesa entered and won several local pageants and talent shows in nearby New York City. While working as a reference singer, she made an impression on Siri Music Group label head Chauncy Jackson after being introduced by production team The Chemistri. “Hearing her voice on a demo for a song that eventually became one of her singles [Blame My Ex] was only a small reason for the signing,” says Jackson. “[Miesa] has one of the most humbling personalities with an underlying sweetness that is at once compelling and hypnotic.”
Their creative pairing has since produced several singles, fostering a strong relationship that promises to elevate Miesa to the world’s stage. A tangible buzz began to simmer around the first single, “Antidote,” after debuting on Twittmusic garnering over 20K listeners it’s first week of release and attracting industry insiders alike, “Antidote’ is an amazing song. Beautiful, [Miesa has] such a great voice,” Chris Geringer of Sterling Sound said. The famed mastering engineer has worked with the likes of Madonna, Rihanna, Nas, Nelly Furtado, and Lady Gaga.
Her latest single, “Too Bad For You,” written by JacksonCroft and produced by The Chemistri is the perfect introduction to Miesa’s upcoming debut album. In addition, songs like “Adjusted To Lonely,” offer a throwback to 90s textured beats, while “I Was Ok,” taps into your heartstrings and she dials up the tempo on “Sway (I Miss You),” another standout. Her tone is undeniable, especially when she interprets ballads and exposes her vulnerability.
“Soulful but not forced, Miesa’s voice is a refreshing addition to the pop-tinged R&B landscape,” says The New Myspace. Citing influences from artists that include Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, The Beatles and Whitney Houston, one can only describe her as as an eclectic sponge, her music as an intimate confession of her deepest thoughts with lessons learned, delivering a heartfelt theme of love.
