Who Is #Mortasay?

Mortasay is the inevitable expression of an occasional Hip Hop playing Christian percussionist/drummer and a singing-songwriting multimedia artist.

Vonyse is from Indianapolis, IN and Amy’s from Washington State. These two actionists believe that “music heals the soul and words shape our perception of the world. We want to contribute to the positive side of that perception.”

#Mortasay’s combined experiences:

  • Toured with Cake, Gomez, Rootbeer
  • Shared a stage with Chaka Kahn, Black Eyed Peas, Ozomatli, Hillsong
  • Performances at Milwaukee Summerfest, SXSW, and numerous colleges.

“The worst thing you can do is censor yourself as the pencil hits the paper. You must not edit until you get it all on paper. If you can put everything down, stream-of-consciousness, you’ll do yourself a service.”

– Stephen Sondheim
