Note: Moses Sumney will be performing a second show at Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent in Meriton Festival Village on 15 January. You can buy tickets here.

Celestial, soulful, and subtly subversive, Moses Sumney makes dreamlike folk-soul that slow-dances with death and makes heartbreak sound holy. Raised in California and Ghana, counting Sufjan and Solange as fans before he’d even released his acclaimed debut EP, and with strands of Anohni and Billie Holiday in his musical DNA, Sumney writes songs that sound like they grew out of cracks in an LA sidewalk: natural, surprising, elegant, perfectly formed.

Armed with just a guitar, a loop pedal and an otherworldly voice, his performances come together one luminous layer at a time. He’ll tell you, tongue in cheek, that his songs are older than time, and you’ll believe him. You’ll want to laugh, you’ll want to dance, and you might forget to breathe.

...his looping voice reached the sorrowful grit of Nina Simone and the ecstatic falsetto of Prince, all in moments
