After a memorable first event at St James The Great, that saw an incredible performance led by Yussef Kamaal alongside an all star line up, we at Church Of Sound are very excited to welcome yet another bunch of young & talented jazz cats into this beautiful church.
Moses Boyd Exodus.
Drummer, composer, producer and label owner at only 24 years old, the London born musician has just won act of the year at Jazz Fm Awards, the John Peel Award at Gilles Peterson's Wordwide Awards and the MOBO Awards 2015 for Best Jazz Act.
For the Steve Reid InNOVAtion Award, Moses has worked and collaborated with the likes of Lonnie Liston Smith, Four Tet, Floating Points, Zara McFarlane, Gilles Peterson, Soweto Kinch and many more, whilst leading his own outfits The Exodus and Solo Exodus.
He just released his first 12" , the electrifying dancefloor jazz number 'Rye Lane Shuffle' which features music from his eagerly awaited debut album.
