Moses Boyd

Moses Boyd to play new Exodus album live in London next month

The London drummer prodigy takes to Clapton’s St James The Great on June 2.

With an impressive first event led by Yussef Kamaal, Church Of Sound are returning to the stunning settings of St James The Great with an appearance from musical polymath Moses Boyd. He’ll be joined by his quartet to perform the Exodus album, along with a tribute to legendary bebop drummer Art Blakey.

Boyd has already been awarded the title of Best Jazz Act at the 2015 MOBOs, Act of the Year at the Jazz Fm Awards and the John Peel Award at Gilles Peterson’s Wordwide Awards. He recently dropped the infectious dancefloor jazz of Rye Lane Shuffle on his own Exodus Records, and is soon set to unleash his debut album, which was mixed by personal mentors Four Tet & Floating Points.

Support on the night will come from Vels Trio, and all proceeds from booking fees will be going to Calais Action, via Party for the People. Check the Facebook event for more info and grab tickets here.

For a taster of next month’s gig, check Moses Boyd’s Exodus in action at their recent Boiler Room In Stereo session.
