Teedra Moses Live at Jazz Cafe (14-15 Aug)

Teedra Moses is a one of a kind artist, one of the select few who embody the Jazz Cafe spirit through and through. She released her debut album Complex Simplicity in August 2004 to critical acclaim, finding success on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums, the Top Independent Albums, and the Top Heatseekers, reaching number twenty, number eleven, and number ten, respectively.

 

In addition to executive producing and penning all the lyrics on her own project, Moses has written songs for other artists including Nivea, Christina Milian, Mary J. Blige and a host of others. She was featured on and co-wrote two songs from Raphael Saadiq’s 2004 album Ray Ray, “Chic” and “I Want You Back”.

 

When writing songs Moses prefers to do so alone in her own space. Commenting on this Moses said; “I hate to admit it because it sounds so weird, but I don’t like other energies around me. I need to be alone, in my own space, with just me and my music so I can be honest with whatever I feel from the music; otherwise I’m just giving something from the surface.

 

She also feels that fans appreciate artists who are honest and authentic in their music and approach to life in general. In a previous interview she commented “If I’m honest with people, then people will feel that. And that’s been my experience so far, just being frank about my feelings about life, and my experiences in life and love. I think me being honest like that is why I’ve gained sincere fans. From here to America, sincere people who really dig me, that can quote lyrics.”

 

If you want to experience quality neo soul by a singer whose exudes a combination of vulnerability and toughness then this is a concert not be missed. Check out one top tracks ‘No More Tears’ below.
