Biography

Baltimore-born singer Maysa Leak started out her career as a vocalist in Wonderlove, Stevie Wonder's female backing group after graduating in classical performance from Morgan State University in Baltimore. Maysa is strongly associated with British acid jazz exponents Incognito, a band she joined shortly after her stint with Wonderlove.

Incognito were then known simply as a jazz funk band and Maysa sang on their acclaimed album 'Tribes, Vibes and Scribes' released in 1992. The album reached number five in the US Jazz Charts and the track 'Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing' was a top 20 hit in the UK and established Maysa's credentials as a jazz/R&B vocalist. The song was the highlight of her career with the band although she subsequently went on to appear on numerous recordings with the group.

The singer continued to build her solo career but it wasn't until the release of 'Metamorphosis' in 2008 that she achieved her first number one hit when the album went to the top of the US Contemporary Jazz Charts. Since the success of 'Metamorphosis', Maysa has been consistently successful with two further number ones and a string of top tens.
