Mesonjixx

This summer enjoy Jazz in June from the comfort of your own home.

Mesonjixx is an artist who currently resides in Omaha. Her father is black American born and raised in the Alabama Ozarks and her mother is a South Pasifika islander from Honolulu. Mesonjixx is the middle child of five. While living in Chicago (2009-2014) she honed her songwriting and musical style. She’s since returned to Nebraska to find balance in her interconnected nature of her identities as a woman, as one who belongs to two diasporas of two hemispheres, and as a young black midwesterner who finds the plains of America her home.

Mesonjixx creates music to find her unique center. Soon after her performance debut in 2015, Mesonjixx has not only become a fixture of the Nebraska music scene, but has risen to the top of artists in the Midwest. Both as a solo artist and as a leader of a trio and quartet, which has drawn the most talented musicians of Nebraska. In 2017 Mesonjixx released the EP “In the Middle” recorded, mixed, and produced at Omaha’s Make Believe Studios. Her current trio, with keyboardist Nate Asad (f.k.a. INFNTLP of Omaha hip-hop duoBXTH) and percussionist John Evans, was selected to open for Kamasi Washington’s recent performance in Omaha, and was a returning festival favorite at this year’s True/False Independent Film festival in Columbia, Missouri. The trio’s most recent work includes arrangements of productions from Oddissee.

We are excited to present 5 weeks of Nebraska Jazz musicians broadcast live via Basement Creators Network on Facebook Live and YouTube. Tune in Tuesday evenings from 7-8pm.
