Biography

Los Angeles singer/songwriter Moses Sumney first emerged in 2014, merging rich soul balladry with art-pop, folk, and ambient R&B. The San Bernardino native began playing out in his early twenties, quickly crafting a distinctive style that he augmented in the studio with lush multi-tracked vocal arrangements. His debut EP, 2014's Mid-City Island, yielded the dreamy single "Man on the Moon" and was followed in 2016 by the more acoustic-oriented singles "Seeds" and "Please." As his reputation grew, Sumney began to notch high-profile gigs opening for artists like Solange, James Blake, and David Byrne. In September 2017, Sumney delivered his debut full-length, Aromanticism, an artfully crafted meditation on lovelessness and solitude. The following year, an EP was released featuring different versions of his Aromanticism track, "Make Out in My Car," as remixed by Sufjan Stevens and James Blake and covered by Alex Isley. Another EP, Black in Deep Red, 2014, was also released in 2018. ~ Timothy Monger
