Jamaican-born artist, Micha Ciselle is gearing up to release her freshman EP this summer. The EP is called Lover’s Leap and the four-song compilation celebrates taking chances and Love — a term the songstress often uses as a metaphor for music. Mixed and Mastered by one of Jamaica’s most recognized engineers, Rohan Dwyer, Lover’s Leap will be the first official musical statement for this Island beauty. Half Trinidadian, half Jamaican, the LA-based singer ingeniously fuses the music of her oots with Pop and electronic music. A singer/songwriter at heart, Micha Ciselle wrote the lyrics for this project, as well as the music for two of the four tracks – “Ready for Love,” and “Fallin’”– which Dwyer then brought to life, enlisting the talents of some of Jamaica’s finest musicians. Lover’s Leap strongly reflects her dual nationality, and listeners can look forward to hearing prominent dancehall and reggae influences, soca references, and a distinct Pop flavor. The EP showcases her soulful vocals and intricate background vocal arrangements – a trademark she has become known for.
The title of the EP was inspired by the singer’s personal experience with music. Micha Ciselle
took a chance in 2010 and moved to California after being awarded LA College of Music’s most prestigious scholarship, where she was mentored by artists such as Dorian Holley (Michael Jackson, American Idol) and Tierney Sutton (multiple Grammy Award nominee). Since taking this leap of faith, Micha Ciselle has embarked on a steady journey, establishing herslef in the music industry. In 2011 she was invited to a private audition for The Voice where she was one of the few to progress in the audition rounds. In 2012 she contributed one of the top performing tracks on the compilation album – Absinthe. Produced by Jamaican outfit, Jus Eazy Productions, who have worked with artists such as Ky-mani Marley and Busy Signal, Absinthe also includes selections from Internationally acclaimed Jamaican group, Voicemail among others. In 2013 she collaborated with the TV/music producer of 3Gfilms, LA to create the single “Beautiful”. Micha Ciselle has also graced many stages in LA including The House of Blues, The Mint, Whiskey A Go Go and festivals such as David Arquette’s Piece Fest – the first festival of it’s kind for the actor. Lover’s Leap is a long-anticipated labor of love for Micha Ciselle and is the next logical progression in her musical forays.
