Born in Barbados, raised in London, Zeeteah Silveta Massiah was singing before she could talk. No one who heard her voice as a child doubted that music would be her life.
While still in her teens, she was snapped up by Trojan Records and recorded a reggae version of the Jackson 5 hit We Got A Good Thing Going. Soon afterwards, she was cast in a major singing role in the hit London musical Little Shop of Horrors.
In the early 1990s Zeeteah started recording for the Union City label. She had a major hit with Slide on the Rhythm, which soared to No. 1 on the American Billboard dance chart.
After being signed by Virgin Records, Zeeteah recorded two new songs, This is the Place and Sexual Prime, both of which were UK chart hits. In 1996, she made it to the UK final of the Eurovision Song Contest with A Little Love.
Above all, Zeeteah is legendary for her electrifying live performances. Over the years she has shared the stage with some of the greatest musical artists of our time, including Michael Jackson, Tom Jones, Robbie Williams, Phil Collins, Sting, Mick Hucknall, Johnny Hallyday, Kim Wilde and Michael Bolton.
Zeeteah sang with Kim Wilde on Michael Jackson’s legendary Bad tour, and toured the world with Tom Jones in 1994.
After ten years based in Germany and performing throughout Europe, Zeeteah is now back in London with a new band and a new sound. Blending her lifelong passion for jazz with her soul and blues roots, she calls it Soul Jazz. It is the music she has always longed to make. Listen, and you’ll understand why.
