Maiysha Defies Genres With Soulful Debut

Minneapolis-born songbird Maiysha is a true blend of beauty and talent. The graduate of Sarah Lawrence College is a former model and teacher.

Now, Maiysha is a Grammy-nominated artist — recognized for her single, "Wanna Be." Her debut album, This Much is True, is a genre bender, mixing hip hop rhythms with jazz and funk grooves.

She speaks with Tony Cox and gives a live, in-studio performance.
