Moorea Masa’s first solo album, Shine a Light, is a soulful, magnanimous collection of songs that sounds fully contemporary even as it boasts vintage garnishments like whirring Hammond organ and Motown-esque stabs of strings. Masa’s voice would likely sound fantastic in front of any backdrop, but Shine a Light is the perfect showcase for her terrific voice, tinged with soul, R&B, folk, and pop. It’s an album good enough to turn Masa into the kind of superstar she so clearly is destined to become. Now’s a very good time to become familiar with her work live as she headlines on this top-notch bill that includes Frankie Simone’s self-empowering pop and the neo-soul of Portland’s own Blossom.
