Sosha Oshaye, one of the nation’s premier female vocalists, got her start in 2007 when she was invited by Reggie Robinson to join the entity Unit1, a soul group from the Kansas City region. Through various styles and genres of music, Sosha was allowed to further distinguish her own musical style. That style later led to the creation of her own identity and female performance group, Soul’s Poem. That group, which included her childhood best friend and her younger sister, began to perform on a regular basis throughout Kansas City.
Soul’s Poem gained immediate notoriety and was able to perform on stages such as Harper’s Restaurant, The Blue Room and The Gem Theatre, all located in the historic 18th & Vine Jazz District, which had also seen the likes of Ray Charles, Patti Austin, and many more. After a consistent press by a rapidly growing fan base, Sosha was motivated to establish herself as a solo artist and released the single, “Haters”, receiving a great response with notable radio airplay. This led Sosha to complete her highly acclaimed debut album, Heavy On My Mind, a project excellently engineered, featuring impressively mature lyrics, fusing R&B, hip hop, jazz and other genres into the same musical pot.
In 2016, Sosha released an eagerly anticipated sophomore album, Feels Like Change. When asked about her vision for this album Sosha stated, “My music is a message in melody. If you listen to the lyrics, there are messages of hope and love.”
Sosha Oshaye continues to broaden her performing experience with an active touring schedule, both domestically and internationally. Her resume spans from performing at small intimate events to being featured at large festivals like the Let the Good Times Roll Festival in Shreveport, LA and the Durbin Jazz Festival in South Africa. The future is even brighter with the expected release of her next single, “Work”, which will show her most powerful and dynamic recorded performance to date.
