Once in a while there comes along a kid that seems to sing directly into your soul. You’re not quite sure where he came from, or how he possessed the ability, but you’re damn sure he’s going to do something special.
Moses Sumney is an L.A. native with roots in Ghana, and the SPIN proclaimed “soul-folk warrior” uses breathtaking arrangements built on loop pedals, unique vocal tones, and sheer vocal power to create a live show that was recently hailed by Rolling Stone among others.
Let your ears open up to ‘Alchemy,’ the demo KCRW’s Jason Bentley is addicted to spinning.
Moses plays The Echoplex tomorrow, December 5th with Thundercat & Jonwayne.
