IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What is your music background? 

MESHA:  I grew up singing in the choir at my church.  Around the age of ten, my aunt (who is a well known gospel musician in Dallas) took me to her music workshops at different churches.  We did that for years. I was always doing something musical in school as well- choir, band, plays, etc. 

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  Why do you want to record and release your own music?

MESHA:  I love music and to have someone listen and love something that I created just fills my heart with joy.  Music is like the soundtrack of life. If I can give someone a life experience from something that I wrote or sang it’s just like ‘wow, look what I was able to bring to the table’. I also believe it’s a gift that was given to me to share with others.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What are your songs about?

MESHA:  My songs are mostly about the ups and downs of love.  Who can’t relate to that? They are also about my own life experiences with love. Those who I have come to know have shared their experiences with me, and so my songs are about others’ experiences with love as well.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  Who is your fan base directed towards?

MESHA:  I would say people who are 25 to 50 years old, people who are maturing in life. It’s funny because you would think while singing about love I would target mostly women but it’s really half male and half female. Men want love too; they just don’t know how to go about getting it.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  Who are your musical influences?

MESHA:  Early on I listened to the Bar-Kays, Anita Baker, Cameo, Chaka Khan, Patti Labelle, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson,  George Michael, Prince, Boy George, and Earth, Wind & Fire, to name a few. They have all played a part in my musical abilities. I used to sing along and harmonize to all of their songs.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  How would you describe your music to people? 

MESHA:  If I had to put my music in a genre then I guess it would be neo-soul. It also has a little R&B influence. I’ve been compared to Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, and Lauryn Hill. Thinking about it, those are some good artists to be compared to- but I’m still Mesha.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What makes you stand out from other artists? 

MESHA:  I truly desire to put music out that others can relate and escape to.  I want others to win with me and sometimes it doesn’t work out, but I do my part.  Overall, we are here to help one another. Sometimes not being selfish bites me in the butt, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. It’s just another experience for me to learn from.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What are some upcoming projects you are currently working on?

MESHA:  I have a few songs that I have recorded and would like to put out as singles. I am currently trying to decide which one I would like to push first.  I have also done some rap hooks for hip-hop artists who want something melodic on their songs. Soon I will be working with a rock artist from Oklahoma who wants my voice on a project that he’s doing. I’m excited about that because I don’t do that a lot. We shall see how it goes.

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS:  What are your career goals? Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

MESHA:  I would love for music to be my career, whether it’s writing for others or putting out my own music. I can hear a few of my songs on someone’s movie soundtrack. I can see myself surrounded by the best so that I can be the best I can possibly be.

10 years from now I see myself performing around the world, giving that gift back to the universe, and definitely growing into the person I am meant to be. Who that person is, I don’t know yet, but I’ll let you know in 10 years.

So i love the diverse attitude that you have Mesha and the open-mindedness and passion to explore different genre’s of music and not limit your talent. Keep believing and you will soar with eagles 🙂
