Biography

Pronounced [ma•see•na] – An unsigned, GRAMMY® nominated, singer, songwriter, arranger, composer, producer, engineer, out to find the magic in everything.

A Washington, DC & Northern Virginia native and graduate of both the Duke Ellington School of the Arts and Howard University, Muhsinah humbly released her first self-produced EP, ‘Oscillations,’ via myspace very early on; duplicating, designing and mailing each disc by hand to a growing list of eager fans, having little idea of what would come to follow…

Fast-forward to a rehashed and refined 2 part digital release, ‘Oscillations: Sine’ EP (2008) & ‘Oscillations: Triangle’ EP (2010), while being mindful not to overlook the happenings between the two –
• A feature cut (‘Changes’) on Common’s ‘Universal Mind Control‘ (2008)
• Several years backing the rapper on stage, with synth and vocals
– Universal Mind Control Tour with N*E*R*D in (2008) (including performances on Jay Leno, Ellen Degeneres, and Jimmy Kimmel)
– President Obama’s Inaugural Ball in (2009)
– Maxwell’s Black Summer’s Night Tour that same year (2009)
– President Obama’s Democratic Rally in Hyde Park – Chicago, IL (2010)

Prepped and primed to play the foreground, Muhsinah began touring solo, receiving invitations to perform at renowned concerts like the legendary annual Roots’ Picnic (2008) and Sonar in Barcelona (2009), David Letterman’s 5000th episode with the Noisettes in 2010 and The Soul Beach Music Festival in Aruba (2011), amongst many other prestigious stages.
