MILLISA HENDERSON

​​ ABOUT ​​​​​​

Millisa Henderson is an instrumental rock guitarist and the guitarist for No/Hugs. Born and raised in Muskogee, Oklahoma, she has been an avid performer and guitar enthusiast since she first picked up the instrument at the age of 11 years old. She has been inspired by guitar virtuosos such as Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, and she hopes to carry on a tradition of blazing solos and soaring melodies for the next generation of guitarists.

As a student and the 2016 Lollapolooza scholar at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, Millisa regularly gigs and tours with her solo band and Manic 
Kat Records artist No/Hugs. She has also been a session player with many Boston-based artists. With No/Hugs, she has released
the critically acclaimed single, "Your Satisfaction is Fake," which was debuted at the final Vans Warped Tour in 2018. In addition to writing new music with No/Hugs, she is writing and recording her highly anticipated debut solo EP, which will include a range of styles from progressive rock to fusion. Millisa proudly endorses Equilibrium Guitars, Ernie Ball, Dimarzio, Walrus Audio, Strymon Engineering, EX-Gear, and Moxy Guitars.

Your Satisfaction is Fake

“Your Satisfaction is Fake” is our latest single touching upon metal health struggles such as depression and suicide with a much-needed focus on the LGBTQIA community.  The music video follows the storyline of two trans teenagers on the verge of breaking down because they live in a society that won’t accept them. In order to keep surviving, they use “masks” to conform and hide their true identity. As individuals we live in a society that forces us to wear masks - if you don't conform within its boundaries you are an outcast and therefore stigmatized to be unhappy. “Your Satisfaction is Fake” is an outcry for the need of emotional freedom and individuality as well as a prompt for the viewers to unmask themselves by welcoming vulnerability and openly communicating their emotional discontentment. As a band, the message we want to pass on most with this single is to unmask yourself, and face, accept and love the real you. It's not worth putting a happy mask on when you are deteriorating from the inside. 

Your Satisfaction is Fake was premiered at the last Van's Warped Tour in Mansfield, MA at the Xfinity Center on July 27, 2018

Solo release coming soon! In the meantime, check out some videos!
