Masa teamed enlisted some of her best friends for the making of “I Can’t Tell”, ahead of the launch of their production company Ursa Major Productions. In the video, Masa also highlighted some of Portland’s best dancers to show – in flesh – what the song shows in sound. There is a rare sense of self-knowing and trust running through the whole production, and one is left with the feeling that this is an artist who is here to stay.
A Portland native, the 25-year old Masa brings an organic Northwest vibe to traditional R&B sounds. Profoundly moving, she blends sumptuous soul together with stripped-back folk harmonies. After working as a featured vocalist and backing singer for a range of artists, including KD Lang, Allen Stone, El Vy, The Decemberists, Nick Waterhouse, The Motet and more, she released her debut EPlast May and is set to release her next album in collaboration with producer Jmost this spring. She has toured nationally as a solo artist, and previously as part of The Ruby Pines and Ural Thomas & The Pain.
