Though her earliest musical experiences were schooled in the gospel choirs of East St. Louis, Illinois, she has had no formal training as a vocalist. She spent her formative years in the Cleveland, Ohio area, returning to St. Louis in 1999 to pursue her dreams of performing as a vocalist. She was discovered when she sat in with the great St. Louis saxophonist Oliver Sain, and soon afterward formed her own band, the Solid Senders.
She makes frequent appearances at blues dance events and festivals coast to coast, including Blues Rising, the Emerald City Blues Festival.
Massie has won two “Best Female vocalist of the Year” awards from the Riverfront Times and starred in the 2003 production of It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues by the St. Louis Black Repertory Theatre. In 2005, she won a Grand Center Visionary Award.
