The day finally came. I have been waiting to see Teedra Moses for eight months since not being to get tickets prior. The location was at London’s Jazz Cafe on the 3rd March.
For those of you that have been to The Jazz Cafe will know that it’s an intimate location, more so it’s as if you can smell the artist on stage.
The opening act was a young fellow names Nathan Adams, which reminded me of Dwele because of the soul that was in his music. Him and his band performed soul house music.
Teedra, Teedra, Teedra, where do I begin, a true pioneer with her craft. She performed the old and the new, which all was music to our ears. Drinking Courvoisier Cognac straight from the bottle during her performance, she made the crowd feel at ease with the stories she was sharing- how she bought cheap weave in London and got her protoje to come on stage and brush her hair. Pretty sure she was somewhat tipsy, her voice was pitch perfect, in fact I preferred her live performance with her band to her sound on the album because you were able to see her wear her heart on her sleeve whilst performing.
She announced that she will be performing in London in 2014, at the venue XOYO in Old Street, guaranteed to catch me there. She is currently in Miami now continuing her tour, so anyone thats there I would recommend that you go and check her out.
Hear Peace, hear Music!
