In the heart of London Town at the legendary Jazz Café, the Cognac & Conversation singer Teedra Moses bought her art to life for the first run of her three-night headline show. Opening up for the crowd was one half of UK R&B duo Dora Martin, singer-songwriter Cherri V. Accompanied by her husband the acclaimed drummer Junior Kirton and a single guitarist the songstress delivered a sensual acoustic set to warm up the crowd. Kicking off her set with the classic ‘Favourite Guy,’ the Londoners euphoric vocals took us through a journey of love, healing, industry struggles and gratitude. A short interval in the heavily packed venue left little room to manoeuvre but this did not dampen the mood as the crowd geared up for the headliner.

 

Prior to the ‘Dip It Low’ songwriters entrance the band set up in preparation for her live set, led by MD Wayne Plummer on guitar before being shortly joined by gospel singer Ryan Carty on background vocals while the host introduced the R&B hit maker. Once on stage Moses immediately engaged the crowd with banter expressing her love of the UK with a bottle of brandy in tow warning us that this show was about to be a lit! Kicking off the show with mega hit ‘You’ll Never Find’ that originally features rapper Jadakiss, the crowd sang back word for word. The New Orleans native took us through a blend of classic hits from her debut album Complex Simplicity with stand out songs ‘Rescue Me,’ which she dedicated to the political race controversy of her home town. 
She moved on to a sweet serenade with the inspirational track ‘For a Lifetime’ accompanied by words of encouragement and tales of her journey. The R&B Diva went on to thank God and her unwavering fans for supporting her journey thus far through words and song.

As the singer went through her catalogue the atmosphere was electric and elated but the BVs and live band however, were an incredible addition to her flawless vocals. Individually they demonstrated their talent in a moments spotlight but the stand out star is the fresh young drummer Michael Efah who set the crowd with an epic solo drum performance.

To bring the crowd back to a celebratory vibe Moses picked up the set with ‘Caught Up’ with a bounce and ‘Be your girl’ was crowd pleaser that she remixed with a European twist. Spicing things up the Grammy nominee injected a bit of ratchet with ‘Better Tell Her,’ for what we thought was the encore but Moses came back out with more gratitude and strength. To conclude the show Moses belted out her soulful slowjam ‘Backstroke’ and the crowd were satisfied as they had been requesting it all night.

 

Overall the first show was a huge success, with a setlist full of nogistic crowd pleasers. Both Cherri V and Teedra Moses delivered immaculate vocal performances which were boasted immensely by the live band, who stole the show.
