Anesha Birchett has Motown flowing through her veins. The beautiful Detroit, Michigan born-and-raised vocalist dazzled industry tastemakers with her precise tone and pitch, which led to her single, Beyond Your Past, being featured on 2008’s BMI Sampler. The 19-year-old musical prodigy has that smoky, yet resonant sound that will appeal to music lovers everywhere, and the track lays a strong, gospeldelic foundation that will draw listeners in from the first note. With an album in the works, the Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins songwriting signee will have powerful production muscle behind what she hopes will be a platinum-plus debut. On Beyond Your Past, however, The Stuntmen have put together a soothing, yet ear-catching concoction that complements Anesha’s vocal strength. Birchett is currently unsigned, but that won’t be the case for much longer.
