Follow Moorea Masa & The Mood

The 25 year old, Portland native, Moorea Masa, brings an organic Northwest vibe to the more traditional R&B sounds. Profoundly moving, she blends sumptuous soul together with stripped-back folk harmonies. Her voice has the power to move mountains, and can transport listeners from lush green forests to dimly-lit juke joints. She is greatly influenced by old soul singers, nature, honesty, traveling, community, justice, and love and death. Her real talent as an artist and singer lies in her ability to communicate a range of emotion, and the raw edge in her voice could break a heart in two. It would hurt to miss such a booming talent. She has been compared to likes of Amy Winehouse, Lianne La Havas, and Phox. She has toured nationally as a solo act, and worked as a featured vocalist and backing singer with an array of artists, including KD Lang, Allen Stone, Bob's Burgers, El Vy, Ramona Falls, Nick Waterhouse,The Decemberists, Ural Thomas and the Pain, Manatee Commune and more. She recently returned from a 6 week national tour opening and singing backup for Allen Stone. She also recently opened for two of her favorite artists, Corinne Bailey Rae, and Emily King on a leg of their west coast tours. Currently Moorea is working on her first full length album titled "Shine A Light" with producer Jeremy Most (Emily King) set to be released Spring of 2018. Her first single "The Garden" was released this past fall, and was met with high praise. A remake of the Garden was recently released by Manatee Commune earlier this year, and has been the #1 played song on KEXP, and has reached over half a million plays on Spotify. Her band "The Mood" is comprised of some of Portland's finest musicians, and they will make their debut with Moorea on the upcoming record, along with special guests Ural Thomas, Catherine Feeny, and many more.

"Her voice is a charming blend of silken tonal clarity, luxuriant phrasing and perfectly weighted power and restraint, she coexes the listener an instinctive emotional response and she seduces with her tenderly emotional delivery" (Next2Shine)
