Tamisha Waden is many things including a proud North Carolina native, both 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, gritty and 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 church sound with funky soul rhythm.
Tamisha sings with a soothing reserve while delivering a balance of old school, new school familiarity in a way no one else can. This creates a unique blend that uplifts and captivates her audiences. You’ll be hard pressed to find an audience member at one of Tamisha’s shows who can remain seated as her music is best experienced dancing and swaying to the rhythm.
