As part of XJAZZ Festival 2017 we present: Moses Boyd
Undoubtedly one of the most exciting artists in London right now.
Throughout his time at Trinity Laban he worked in a professional capacity as one half of the duo Binker and Moses, with his ensemble The Exodus and on his own as Solo Exodus and released music underhis own label Exodus Records. He has collaborated with Lonnie Liston Smith, Ed Motta, Little Simz, Four Tet, Floating Points, Zara McFarlane, Gilles Peterson, Soweto Kinch and many more. Awards he has received include The John Peel Play more Jazz Award from the 2016 Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards, Parliamentary Jazzaward for Jazz Newcomer of the Year 2016, a MOBO award for best jazz act 2015, two Jazz FM awards and the Worshipful Company of Musicians’ Young Jazz Musician award in 2014. Moses released his debut album ‘Dem Ones’ with Binker and Moses in 2015 and this year saw him release his instant sell out debut 12" featuring the anthemic "Rye Lane Shuffle" as well as joining Kelsey Lu to form Sampha's band. 2017 will see a new EP released and perhaps this much whispered about debut album...
