This England-born, US-raised singer presents a new recipe for soulful sounds that has been hailed by music fans and critics around the globe. Music site Soulbounce.com calls Teisha Marie’s sound “jazzy, soulful, and seductive”, while the classic music brand SoulTrain.com has called her music “refreshingly honest”, a “perfect alternative to abrasive mainstream themes”.
Summer 2017 will see the release of a new collaborative single from HD featuring Teisha Marie 'Better than this' on Ashwood Records. The track will also feature Jim Macrae (Jordan Rakei) on drums and Greg Doggett (The Doggett Brothers) on guitar.
Teisha Marie has been featured at numerous events, including the International Soul Summit, The Can A Sista Rock a Mic festival, the Capital Hip Hop Soul Festival, and others. She has performed at numerous venues, including Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar in New York, and Bohemian Caverns in Washington DC, to name a few.
Her growth and momentum as a performance and recording artist only continued with the release of her album, The Girl from Nowhere, released in 2013.
"This album is for the person who likes to put their iPod on shuffle,” Teisha explains. “It’s not necessarily a different genre of music, but my delivery is different. The album is based, in part, on my experience as a world traveler, raised by parents in the military. People always ask, 'Where are you from?' and 'What do you do?' but I never felt like I was from anywhere. The album is inspired by my feeling like the outsider a lot of time—alienation in love and life and the strength you find in being different and how in your difference you aren’t alone."
Displaying her ability as a musician and producer on The Girl From Nowhere, Teisha Marie is clearly defining her brand of eclectic soul. Her latest journey includes production/appearances from Kenny Wesley, Deborah Bond, Ahmed Sirour, Frank Javois, Robert "Snúhghie" Stocks, AntonGenius, Robbie McDonald, ABthePRO, Chris "Antagonist" LeCount, Barrington "Barry" Talbert and Jamal Cherry. With an ever-evolving musical passport, Teisha Marie hopes to continue touching audiences with her passionate vocals and a mission to serve, as evidenced by her raw and emotionally-compelling lyrics.
"As a singer-songwriter, I write and create from my experiences. I want my music to be used as a tool to motivate, strengthen and heal,” Teisha says. “If audiences don't feel inspired at the end of my show, then I need to work harder."
