If you love soulful R&B and you don’t know about Teedra Moses your late, but better late than never. Teedra is talented vocalist that has been pushing on the R&B underground for years now. 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. Teedra 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.
Since her time on TVT records Teedra Moses has released three independent, all-original “Mixtapes” for fans of her music. With over 10 years of live performance, selling out intimate venues around the world, and a stream of mixtapes, Moses will release only her second commercial release in a decade. Cognac & Conversations scheduled to be released 1st quarter 2015. C&C will feature the lead single “That One” ft. Anthony Hamilton. As a fan of both singers, I say its about time this collaboration happen.
