Tamisha Waden is many things including a proud North Carolina native, a jazz, soul and R&B singer, songwriter, recording artist affiliated with the Grammy Nominated Group The Foreign Exchange, music junkie and even a self-proclaimed techie. Underneath all the titles, talents and acclaim is a woman who loves nothing more than to create music that speaks to your heart and soul.
The soul evoking lyrics and musical accompaniment of Tamisha’s work uplift and reflect the times we live in creating a vibe you feel just as much as you hear.
That’s because as Tamisha puts it, “I want my listeners to hear my heart.” Her powerful, yet soothing voice with a warm rich texture does just that and can bring you to tears.
To find an artist who’s the same on and off stage is a rarity and for Tamisha it’s an innate act of bravery. What you see is what you get with her whether it’s at a sold-out performance or in the day-to-day. She attributes this to growing up in Durham, North Carolina, a city where authenticity is the currency. Because of that, she is able to combine a motivational R&B sound with a funky soul rhythm.
She has shared the stage with and supported some of R&B, Jazz/Soul music royalty Mavis Staples, Tom Browne, Roy Ayers, Marion Meadows and Bob Baldwin, Tony Terry, Melba Moore, Donnie, Comedienne Sinbad, The Grammy Nominated Black Pumas and the Grammy Nominated the Foreign Exchange. She has also recorded and shared the stage with music artist Phil Cook and Merge Records recording artist Hiss Golden Messenger, with appearances on the Late night Seth Myers Show and CBS This Morning.
Don't miss her recent performances with Grammy nominees The Foreign Exchange on their latest studio effort "Tales from the Land of Milk and Honey" and her single "Good For Me" available for purchase on all digital media platforms. - Shelia Amir
