A native of San Jose, California, Aysha has a solid history as a performer. For the past eight years she has been building a strong solo career, and has independently released her CD “Love Is A Rock”. With songs like “Honey” and “Is This Just A Dream”, Love Is A Rock has a very strong forecast.
Before going solo, Aysha performed with the female group Girls In The Mix. “Girls” opened for such performers as Zapp w/Roger and WAR. Aysha went on to perform with Ronkat and the Funklectiks featuring Grammy Award nominated writer, Ron Spearman. Eight years ago, Aysha made the move to strike out on her own to pursue her solo career, performing in venues throughout the Los Angeles area. Among these local venues Aysha was invited and performed at the prestigious BB King’s Blues Club.
Aysha has developed a style that will soothe most any soul. Her velvety voice is sultry and smooth with a jazzy edge, and with influences such as Sade, Toni Braxton, Phyllis Hyman and Chante Moore, one can only imagine the vibe. Co-writing the majority of her songs, Aysha has been fortunate to work with some very successful producers and arrangers such as Monty Seward (Howard Hewett), Donald Tavié (Lakeside, Norman Connors) and Kevin Dorsey (Michael Jackson), to name a few. One of Aysha’s most current projects included on her CD is a remake of Atlantic Starr’s “Send For Me” arranged by Donald Tavié.
In August of 2006, Roc-Life Radio chose Aysha as one of the Top 20 Unsigned New Artists, which airs on Live365.com and became the #1 Independent Artist on their station in October 2006. Her songs “Is This Just A Dream”, “Let Me Be The One”, “Honey”, “More Than Any Words”, and “Send For Me” now play in rotation on all of their play lists.
Also in August 2006, Aysha was approached by radio host Skip “The Funktologist” of “A Funk Above The Rest” show, which airs on Denver’s KUVO 89.3 every Saturday night. He requested to play her song “Honey” which made its debut on his station September 10, 2006. He has now added three more of her songs, “Is This Just A Dream”, “High” and Send For Me” to his play list and will be including “Honey” on an upcoming compilation disc “The Best of A Funk Above The Rest” which will have distribution in Europe as well as the US. In November, Aysha did a live radio interview with Skip, which generated a very favorable response from the listeners.
Most recently, Aysha has been featured in three different Independent Artist magazines, U Magazine of Kingsharkentertainment.com for the March 2008 issue, BIG The Magazine of bighthemagazine.com for the September 2008 issue, and Nine5Four Magazine of nine5four.com for the October 2008 issue.
Currently available on CD Baby and iTunes, Aysha is rapidly growing a fan base outside the US. It’s only a matter of time before Aysha becomes and internationally known name!
