She began her career as a founding member of The Manhattan Transfer. Her solo recordings, Alone Together, Easy Living and Again have been applauded by People, Billboard Jazz and The Absolute Sound. Her most recent recording, Once in a Million Moons is a classic partnership with arranger/accompanist Hubert “Tex” Arnold, long-time music director for the great Margaret Whiting. Ms. Massé has also appeared on recordings by Barry Manilow, percussionist Layne Redmond, songwriter Carol Hall, and banjo master Tony Trischka, among others. While living in NYC, she was a member of the professional choir of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
