The Muhsinah Sessions

The Grammy nominated vocalist and producer doing it for the girls.

Muhsinah was a classmate of mine at Howard University and from what I remember, she seemed to be one of the most genuinely gentle souls you could ever meet. She's very talented indeed and her success comes as no suprise. She says about her Grammy nomination, "I feel like it was a sign, a reminder to do more and more because our efforts are worth it. I feel like my life is only just starting. How exciting!" She performed for Obama’s Inaugural Ball with Common, was on Letterman singing with the Noisettes and got her first Grammy nod. Now Muhsinah is stepping to the front. Her new album, the epic heavy soul bump of The Oscillations: Triangle features her own deep, fizzy productions, setting pretty and definitely holding their weight alongside beats from Flying Lotus, Mike Slott, Exile and Oddisee. This DC-based siren is doing it for the girls.
