[Moses Sumney] Releases 'Mid-City Island' EP
Today is the day that we here at the Willow Wood offices have dreamed about since... well the very first moment we ever heard the jaw-dropping Moses Sumney. No joke, my jaw was on the floor when I stumbled upon Moses' "Everlasting Sigh" late one night at roughly 2am.
Ever so often the moment arises when I am stopped in my tracks and left breathless by a musician, Moses Sumney is the man to wear that crown for 2014. Moses Sumney is a true artist; his raw talent, comfortable demeanor and flawless execution is somewhat of a phenomenon, hard to explain in words.
Sumney is a recent emergence onto the music scene, using his Los Angeles base to perform at prolific residencies and anchor a loyal following. He is the type of artist that you rave about to your friends, finding it hard to compose the words to explain his music and rather urge them to experience it for themselves live.
With little material available online, the mystery and allure surrounding his music has made him that much more of an elusive artist to watch - constantly yearning for more. Since the moment I first heard Moses' angelic vocals looped in that creative and powerful way, I have been constantly waiting for more material to be released, and to lust over. The day is finally here, we welcome you to turn down the lights, turn your speakers up, find a relaxing area and simply revel in these heavenly 5 tracks.
Catch him on tour with Local Natives this Spring and download 'Mid-City Island' for free via Soundcloud.
Not only is Moses Sumney one of the most talented musicians we have ever encountered, but he is an incredibly humble and warm person. Moses, we are so excited for your passion, hard work and talents to pay off and for you to share it with the world.
