One on One with Maiysha
Tuesday, March 23, 2010

For Maiysha, the road she’s taken to success hasn’t been a typical one. “It has not been a linear route,” she says with a laugh. After spending half a dozen years in the studio, she earned a Grammy nomination in 2009 from her very first single, “Wanna Be,” which is off of her independently released debut album, This Much Is True.

Now residing in Brooklyn, NY, but having grown up in both Minneapolis and Chicago, Maiysha could hold a tune singing in the back of her mother’s car at two years old and made her stage debut as Dorothy in her elementary school production of The Wiz. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence College, Maiysha found herself running the drama department of an elementary school, looking to make ends meet. When someone suggested she try modeling she gave it a shot. People took notice, including the people at the Ford Models, who signed her up and still represent her.

Through modeling Maiysha beat a temporary bout with stage fright while raising the funds for her music career. She jokes “there was a lot of running around in underwear. They pay handsomely for that.” I caught up with the talented songstress and while all the clothing stayed on, she let everything else hang out.
