The Official

         Playing guitar since the young age of 11,  Millisa Henderson from Muskogee, Oklahoma, has been a female rock phenom from the start.  She strives to give her audiences positive, high-energy performances filled with powerful riffs and blazing solos they won't soon forget! 

     Millisa began her musical journey at a week-long summer "rock camp" in Muskogee. It was there she realized her musical dreams, and she immediately set goals to become a professional musician. Soon after the camp, she began studying under local guitar instructor, Bradley Spears. During her teen years, she performed across the States with youth rocks bands Signs of Warning and Insane Audio, as well as performing solo and as part of the Rising Stars Productions, Inc. non-profit organization.  She has performed at venues such as Graceland, Loretta Lynn's Ranch, the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame, GFest, The Berklee Performance Center, Hard Rock Cafes in Dallas, Memphis, and Boston, the Middle East, and Midway cafe among many others. 

     During the summers of 2013, 14, and 15, Millisa attended summer programs at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. It was during those programs that she fell in love with the college. After graduating high school in 2016, Millisa was accepted to Berklee on the full-tuition Lollapalooza Scholarship, a scholarship awarded to one outstanding rock musician a year. 

     Since her arrival at the college, Millisa has been extremely involved in Berklee's programs and community. She regularly plays gigs in the New England area and is in the studio recording projects weekly. Last spring, she was chosen to perform in Jon Finn's Pop/Rock guitar night, an annual event for outstanding student guitarists held in the Berklee Performance Center. Millisa is the founder and current President of the student-led club Guitarchestra, Berklee's first ever rock-guitar orchestra, and the President of the Berklee gear club. Millisa was also chosen to recieve the Guitar Department Achievement Award in Spring 2018. At Berklee, she has studied under well-known professors such as Jon Finn, Sal Difusco, Scott Tarulli, and Joe Stump, and recorded with professors such as Matt Ellard (Radiohead, weezer, Black sabbath.)

     Millisa currently resides in Boston as a fifth-semester student at Berklee. She is a member of the bands No/Hugs and Howiehowie, as well as the leader of her own solo project.  She will be playing the final Vans warped tour with no/Hugs in July 2018, as well as many other east coast shows.  Millisa is currently writing and recording her debut solo ep set to be released soon.
