Melisa Whiskey, was born in Hackney to Nigerian parents but after her family moved to north London, she would grow up in the same Camden tower block, which would see her have British Drum n Bass legend Goldie as a neighbor – Bray Towers, Camden.
Melisa’s father was the audiophile of the family, and it was through him that she remembers hearing her first proper artists in the house, Fela Kuti & Bob Marley being the earliest voices she heard.
Melisa Whiskey is the latest diva in the afrobeats scenery. After gaining a cult following due to the infectious nature of her previous soul outings - ‘Played’, ‘Sweetest Cake’ and ‘Billin’’, Miss Whiskey has found a fire in the afrobeats genre after moving back home and soaking into her cultural roots.
Whilst a student at the University of Leicester, Melisa would pack in as many open mic nights as was humanly possible. She would pick up influential fans even at this stage, with BBC Introducing East Midlands going on to support and play her music at that early stage. She graduated with a 2.1 and just a year later, signed a publishing deal with BMG without having released a single song. Her muses remain a mix of the classic and hot: Aretha Franklin, Lauryn Hill, Aloe Blacc, Skepta, Sade. What matters to Melisa is the vocals, above everything. It’s clearly something she’s taken to heart.
