Wednesday, May 30, 2012 8:00AM
[Slated to invade the New York City spotlight tomorrow (May 31) evening at the City Winery, Maybach Music Group's Teedra Moses undresses what fans can expect from her intimate showcase.]
I always try to make my shows very intimiate, no matter the amount of people or the kind of crowd that's there. I try to make it feel like you're listening to your homegirl or your cousin sing at your house. I like to make my shows an interactive thing. We're all friends and family, so you won't see me trying to make it feel too big and blown out. I like to make it feel very intimate but make sure it's still a party too.
Doing a show like this is very exciting because I have a really solid crowd in a few cities across the United States of America and New York is one of those crowds. I have a strong, strong fan base and the people in New York hold you to a certain criteria. I feel like when I go back to perform in New York, I have to do something even stronger to draw their attention and even more so keep them tied into me as a performer. New York is a big city in the United States of America and sets a tone for what people expect from the music. I like to present new ideas in cities like New York.
This show will also be recorded and so I'm going to be getting footage from this and the fans that have been coming to my shows throughout the years in New York. This is going to be real fun because this is going to be a part of a project that I'm working on.
I'm definitely premiering new music. So you can expect to hear new music along with some stuff that you'll really love from music I've put out before. I've put out five mixtapes along with an album and so people that are really fans of mine, they can expect new stuff from me and not just the stuff you've heard before.
Teedra Moses was born and raised in New Orleans, relocating to California with her mother following her parents' divorce. Exposed to gospel early (her mother had once been active on the Southern church revival circuit), Moses brought a little bit of that fervor to her own vocal style when she began singing professionally. Working with producer Pauli Pol, Moses released a single, Be Your Girl, on TVT Records late in 2003, following it with another, You'll Never Find (A Better Woman), early in 2004. A gifted songwriter with a sweet and sultry voice, Moses mixed a light gospel touch with timely hip-hop-inflected neo-soul on her debut album, Complex Simplicity, released in 2004, again on TVT Records.
