Moses Sumney

By January 22, 2015

Featured as one of our artists to watch on our 2014 SXSW artist tracker. Moses Sumney continues to bring forth a magic that is contagious. His vocals evoking a sort of call and response atmosphere, a chanting that hypnotizes and awakens your deepest sentiments. Born to Ghanaian parents, Sumney grew up in LA but briefly lived in Ghana at the tender age of 10 through 16. Six years later, coming back to LA with his family, Sumney fell right back into his American life and at age 20 was accepted into UCLA where he studied creative writing. This affinity for words has shined through Sumneys songwriting giving each listen a poetry unlike any other. He only recently made a name for himself in the music scene but if what he has shared with the world is any indication for what’s to come, we have no doubt it will be oh so good.
