[Maiysha is] already drawing comparisons to the likes of Beyonce and Alicia Keys in her smart lyrics and elegant grooves.
WHEELS 2.0 IN AN AUTUMNAL MOOD
This Week, Jesse and Erica Sing “Oklahoma” and Discover a New Soul Diva
Wheels 2.0 returns after an unexpected weekend sabbatical. We stepped in a little bit of hot water, but have recovered and will return this weekend with a full slate of new bands. In the meantime, here are two awesome acts we think should hold you over until Friday.  [email protected]

Aranda: These two brothers from Oklahoma released their debut album in April and are starting to create a bit of buzz with the track “Still in the Dark,” currently spinning at Active Rock and recently added to WRIF, WCCC and WKLQ, as the group tours the Midwest. Check them out at www.myspace.com/aranda, and don’t be left in the dark (see how we did that?).

Maiysha: Lotsa industry buzz about neo-soulstress Maiysha, whose debut, This Much Is True, just dropped on the UFO-distributed indie Eusonia Records, and she’s already drawing comparisons to the likes of Beyonce and Alicia Keys in her smart lyrics and elegant grooves. With influences like Diana Ross, Chaka Khan, Donna Summer, Stevie Wonder and Prince, the Sarah Lawrence alum credits her attorney dad and TV journalist mom for raising her on '70s and '80s pop soul. Oh, yeah, she's also a model.

Her video for “Wanna Be” is still going strong on VH1 Soul, and the publishing companies are showing some major interest in her and producer and Eusonia founder, Scott Jacoby. She was a featured performer for the opening night party of the VisionFest Film Festival in N.Y. last week, and we know that major label senior execs were sniffing around at both release parties. It’s just a matter of time before her career soars. Sample her album at www.myspace.com/maiyshamusic.
