Introducing Misha Fair
Misha Fair, a prolific singer-songwriter, has been making a bold impression with her classic country vocals and expressive lyrics. Those who have been fortunate enough to see her dynamic performances are in high expectation of her upcoming solo releases.
A product of a musical family, the singer-songwriter’s family has had major label success from RCA to Atlantic Records. As a result, she spent most of her early childhood development with her father, in many of the same studios as the SOS Band, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Isaac Hayes, and other music legends.
With a rich musical legacy written into her DNA, her childhood was shaped by this reality in remarkable yet complicated ways. While most of her kindergarten classmates were toting dolls to Show-n-Tell, her father would join her, off tour, with members of the S.O.S. Band, fully costumed.
Enthralled in the family business, she quickly earned a reputation as the little girl with the big voice, wowing audiences with renditions of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” and other tunes by Patsy Cline, Hank Williams and LeAnn Rimes. Fair was trained from a young age as a classical vocalist and found her passion in a mix of opera, jazz, country, and the gritty alternative sound of the mid ‘90s.
In her teens, Fair often found herself a student in awe of singer-songwriters with powerful voices like Linda Ronstadt and Alanis Morissette. She performed in countless marquee, and children’s choirs in her hometown and later attended college on a vocal performance scholarship. Minoring in linguistic studies, she may be one of the few country artists able to sing and write in multiple languages.
In 2008, she began an internship at Wondaland Arts Society after a chance meeting with Janelle Monae. Her professional career was kickstarted after she began assisting creatively with many of her early projects.
Since, Misha Fair has collaborated with artists, songwriters, and producers including the likes of Blanco Brown, Breland, Demun Jones, and Yelawolf; and looks to join her country music contemporaries as a prolific singer-songwriter as she embarks on her solo musical career.
When speaking on her music, Misha Fair comments, “I’m just a Southern girl, who fell in love with everything great about country music. My songs have been deep-fried in folk, gospel and bluegrass and are best served with a side of rhythm and blues, and rock and roll.”
