Teedra Moses

Live in Manchester

Friday 4th May

Club Academy

Teedra Moses was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana to a gospel singing mother, Shirley Moses. She later moved to Los Angeles, California with her mother and three siblings after her parents’ separation. Prior to becoming a recording artist, Moses worked with her best friend Nonja McKenzie as an assistant wardrobe stylist for artists such as Will Smith, Kelis, R. Kelly, and No Doubt. Never once approaching any of the clients, it wasn’t until after the death of her mother that Moses decided to follow her heart and begin making music. Following this epiphany, Moses teamed up with producer, Paul Poli and signed with the then Number 1 Indie Record Label, TVT Records, in 2002, to release her debut album Complex Simplicity in August 2004. Complex Simplicity included fourteen tracks all self-penned by Moses with dominant production by Poli; which lead to the well deserved executive production credit by both Moses & Poli. With TVT Records now defunct, Moses never had the opportunity to commercially release a sophomore album.

 

Although still most notably known for the “critically acclaimed ”album Complex Simplicity which spawned records such as Be Your Girl, Backstroke and Take Me featuring Raphael Saadiq, Teedra Moses has released three independent, all-original “Mixtapes” for fans of her music. In addition to executive producing and penning all the lyrics on her own project, Moses has written songs for other artists including Christina Milian, Mary J. Blige, Macy Gray, and a host of others. As a Grammy-Nominated Songwriter and BMI Songwriter of the year, for 2 consecutive years, Teedra Moses has used music to inspire others for over 10 years. Moses is currently on “Family Ties” from Rick Ross’ Hood Billionaire album as well as the ambiance vocals on Rick Ross’ previous projects “Nobody” featuring Diddy and French Montana from the Mastermind album, and “Amsterdam” from one of the most anticipated albums of 2012, Rick Ross’ God Forgives I Don’t. 

 

In addition, Moses is featured on and co-wrote three songs from Self Made, the Maybach Music Compilation released in 2011, as well as Big Boi of Outkast “Turn Me On, ”featured on and co-wrote two songs from Raphael Saadiq’s 2004 album Ray Ray, “Chic” and “I Want You Back”. Her songs have been showcased in the Logo series Noah’s Arc as well as in the HBO hit show Entourage, movies such as Never Die Alone, Beauty Shop, Be Cool and The Skinny. With over 10 years of live performance, selling out intimate venues around the world, and a stream of mixtapes, Moses is riding high on only her second commercial release in a decade.

Wilko Johnson

‘I’m supposed to be dead!’ So said Wilko in a recent interview, having been diagnosed in late 2012 with terminal pancreatic cancer. But despite the doctors’ worst predictions he continued to perform and present himself with vigour and a new zest for life. In 2013, Wilko announced that, thanks to a

second opinion and subsequent life-saving surgery, he was cancer-free.

The original Dr Feelgood guitarist is known for his incredible distinctive chopping guitar style. Wilko has gone on to find further success recently after teaming up with Roger Daltrey on 2014’s Going Back Home. An album of the year it featured reworkings of songs from Wilko’s Dr Feelgood days such as ‘All Through The City’ and ‘Going Back Home’.

The Wilko Johnson Band was formed with ex-Blockhead Norman Watt-Roy on bass and Dylan Howe on drums, adding up to one of the most exciting r'n'b bands in the world today. In Sept 2017 Wilko celebrated his 70th birthday and 30th Anniversary by playing a sold out show at the world famous Royal Albert Hall in London

Singer/songwriter Nina Nesbitt was only 16 years old when she emerged on the British music scene in 2011, thanks to a handful of beautifully conceived cover versions made available on her YouTube page. Half Swedish, half Scottish and endowed with a voice boasting technical agility and a searching passion that cut straight to the emotional core of her chosen material, through word of mouth Nesbitt quickly began to garner a passionate following for her well chosen covers.

LONDON, UK (27th Sep, 2017) –Bay Area metal beasts MACHINE HEAD have announced a string of UK tour dates in support of their forthcoming ninth studio album, 'Catharsis', which is set for release via Nuclear Blast in early 2018.

 

Check out the trailer here - https://youtu.be/vNV7WNVmUT8

Vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn tells us, "It’s been far too long since we’ve demolished venues in the UK!  We have had an awesome and productive break writing our new album 'Catharsis', but now it’s time for MACHINE HEAD to go melt some faces!!  The reaction to our last 'Evening With' tours in the UK was nothing short of incredible, so once again these dates will be 'Evening With' shows and will see us performing 2 ½ to 3 hours every night, with no opening bands."  

He continues; "We LOVED performing as an 'Evening With' for the UK Head Cases and you guys loved it as well.  The freedom to do whatever the fuck we want, for as long as we want every night was liberating.  Jamming 'Desire To Fire' live for the first time in aeons at the Ten Ton Hammersmith show in London was epic as fuck!  This is not what everyone else is doing, and frankly, there are not a lot of bands who could even pull it off, but Machine Head CAN pull it off, and we are excited as fuck to do it again.  We are carving our own path here, playing by our own rules, and as an artist, it’s the best feeling in the world!  No festivals, period!  No supporting some stupid DJ!  The Head will only be 'Headlining', so come on down and rage!!"
