Bio: Masego

Masego is a grammy-nominated saxophone player, a singer, and a DJ -a singular talent and surprising presence in the musical fabric right now.  He cites the 1930s Harlem big band leader and singer Cab Calloway as a guiding spirit who was mentored by DJ Jazzy Jeff and puts an unabashedly sultry-smooth spin on the R&B, hip hop, and dance music that he and his contemporaries like Lucky Daye, SZA, Ari Lennox, and Smino are making. He towers over 6ft tall with a gold saxophone pendant around his neck, robed in impeccable threads and with tattoos that spell J-A-Z-Z across his knuckles. His debut album, Lady Lady was a showcase of his many sides: funny and flirty, wide-eyed and coming-of-age, mysterious and moody.  The title track paints him as a jazzy heartthrob,a young sax-playing D'Angelo. Elsewhere he’s influenced by trap, Caribbean styles, electric piano funk, and more somber textures. “It's the many emotions of Masego,” he smiles. Masego lived a nomadic youth, moving around with his Jamaican-American fatherwho was in the air force, and his Georgia-born mother. Both are pastors and he lived what he calls a sheltered life, eventually settling in Virginia for Middle School.  He first encountered music in church and his upbringing was strict. “We weren't allowed to listen to hip-hop at all.” When he was eight, he was blown away by a church drummer and taught himself. “YouTube taught me everything I know,” he says. He picked up piano and saxophone too.College was where Masego blossomed. He did a decade's worth of growing up in a matter of months. He built up a reputation at open mic nights. Then discovered the looper pedal on YouTube, bought one, and started writing his own stuff while freestyling in his dorm. “I’d make up songs about nothing,” he says. “Try themout at talent shows and lose badly.” Masego felt most comfortable hiding behind his instruments. Until he noticed one of his peers singing original music at an open mic, garnering attention from the ladies. “I knew I was missing something, so the voice was the next journey,” he says. Getting back to work on making a beat from scratch, Masego played his saxophone and began rapping and scatting over it.
