    Since emerging in 2014 with his self-released cassette EP, Mid-City Island, Moses Sumney has ridden a wave of word-of-mouth praise, hushed recordings, and dynamic live performances at distinguished festivals around the world and alongside forebears like David Byrne, Karen O, Sufjan Stevens, and Solange. In a voice both mellifluous and haunting, Sumney makes future music that transmogrifies classic tropes, like moon-colony choir reinterpretations of old jazz gems. His lyrics narrate a personal journey through universal loneliness atop otherworldly compositional backdrops.

    In 2017, The California and Ghana-raised troubadour widened the spectrum of his heretofore "bedroom" music with his debut album Aromanticism, a concept record about lovelessness as a sonic dreamscape. Released to great critical acclaim, Aromanticism was widely regarded as one of 2017's best albums (NPR, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, etc).

    Following Aromanticism's critical success, Sumney has brought the album to the masses in the form of sold out headline shows across North America and Europe, as well as a sold out performance at the historic Sydney Opera House on the heels of performing at this year's Laneway Festival. This summer will see that continue, as he brings his celebrated live show to some of the world's premiere music festivals, including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Pitchfork Music Festival, Montreux Jazz, Way Out West, and more.

    Soul

    Whenever artist Nia Andrews steps to the stage, the room around her falls into the dreamy world she paints. Solange called on her to join her #1 album A Seat at the Table alongside Kelly Rowland, and Nia’s most recent release, From Here, co-produced with frequent collaborator Mocky (Feist/Jamie Lidell) showcases beautiful songs that lift hearts and capture imaginations.

    After touring internationally as a background singer for artists Janelle Monae, Lauryn Hill and Common, singing at the Grammys for Mary J. Blige, and penning vocals for bourgeoning stars such as Kelela and Blu as well as celebrated voices such as Jill Scott, it was a long time coming for Nia to step center stage with her debut EP, Colours.

    Since its release, the self-taught singer, songwriter, musician, and producer has become a seminal voice at live venues across Los Angeles’ thriving music scene and worldwide. She was the opener for Corinne Bailey Rae’s West Coast US tour, and made her Europe debut at Überjazz Festival in Hamburg, Germany, where she also played Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival in Leysin, Switzerland.

    No matter the setting or the sound – whether serving her raw emotion behind the piano, singing at a wild underground party, or alongside pop's heavy-hitters - one thing remains the same: Nia Andrews brings a magic like nothing else.

    “Honeyed and whimsical...as mesmerizing as they come” – Saint Heron

    “A voice with the sweetness of Minnie Riperton and the tonal dexterity of Carmen McRae –Wax Poetics

    "Nia’s voice and songwriting evokes a feeling of love, loss, and warninrarely heard in music today." –Clutch Magazine
