studied guitar at Columbia College Chicago. All the while, she further increased her musical palate by listening to albums and playing with other musicians that she met on Chicago’s South side nightclubs. In Chicago, excellent musicians can sometimes be found “busking” by day and on to the best stages at night, and Meisha was a part of that.
Notable shows were several “one woman show” concerts at Colleges and Universities throughout the Midwest, including Ohio State University. In 2008, she performed at the famed Chicago Blues Festival. She has played with many accomplished musicians, including Diane Ellis (Jazz saxophonist) and several local bands. She’s opened up for Toronzo Cannon, Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials and others. She was a regular acoustic performer at Buddy Guy’s Legends and even opened for him as a solo acoustic act at one of his shows.
In 2018, Meisha visited the Northern Shenandoah Valley regions, fell in love with the great acoustic music scene and she now performs regularly at wineries, breweries, outdoor festivals and local event spaces t venues throughout Virginia – including Northern Virginia, Central Virginia and Maryland. In 2019, she performed at George Washington University’s Alum celebration in front of 1500 attendees. In 2020, she also played at the annual Family Day in Winchester’s Douglass Park. Just recently in 2021, she opened up for the Four Tops at Shenandoah Valley Music Festival in Orkney Springs, VA.
Her specialty is acoustic performances, when she can deliver songs and make them her own. If you get a chance, you should check her out live when she’s in your area!
She plays solo, duo, or with a full band!
Meisha loves touring and sharing her unique style of music while using her vocal skills to connect with people of all walks of life in an uplifting way.
Musicians: She has “go-to” musicians that accompany her when the time is right.The musicians provide a nice rhythm section, but the foundation of her sound can be found in her voice and guitar style. You can catch her playing around the Virginia area-from the DC area down to the Shenandoah Valley.
