Raised between Southern California and Ghana, Moses Sumney is a young, self-taught musician that just blew me away with the above video. Pressing play after receiving a heads up from a trusted opinion, I sat in awe as the ?uestlove-championed musician pieced together a beautiful break-up song from scratch. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the one-man performance — shot in one-take by Brian “B+” Cross — was a great introduction. And if you’re like me, you’re already on the hunt for more music so Sumney’s Soundcloud page should be your next stop.
Also, if you’re in the Los Angeles area, I highly suggest you head to the Bootleg Theatre tomorrow night (Friday, Aug. 2) as Moses Sumney will finish his month-long residency opening up for the amazing Minneapolis trio KING.
