Well when it comes to the
female vocalist, a lot can be said for those who makes an impression
and who doesn't. Now although she's a relative newcomer, one such
singer Teedra Moses can fit
the mold as she is intent on making a name for herself in the
R&B soul scene.
The New Orleans born/California
resident who once was an assistant stylist to the stars now embarks
on styling her a career of her own as a singer and with what's
happened so far might do just that.
Raised by her mother in New
Orleans there was always music in their house hold which could
only lead to Teedra catching the singing bug, her mother herself
was once a successful gospel singer. Then came a child's most
frightening fear Mom and Dad no longer loving each other. After
her parents seperation, her mother moved them to California and
here is where she found her true calling. Said Teedra "I
think if I never came to California, I wouldn’t be as refined
about how I am ghetto, like in the way I write. Because L.A. is
a little bit more polished place. You adjust yourself with your
environment. I love L.A., and it’s like the sunshine and all that
makes you wanna be artsy."
And so she sank herself into
becoming an artist and learning all the traits that she could
muster to hone her craft - from singing to songwriting to producing.
With her new found wisdom, she set forth to introduce herself
- she is Teedra Moses.
The lead off single debut
single 'You'll Never Find
(A Better Woman) (that featured
Jadakiss), garnered modest
airplay on radio playlists and saw healthy spins in the clubs.
With the success of her debut, she serves us her latest effort
- 'Be Your Girl'.
Teaming up with up and coming
producer Pauli Pol (who produced
the Black Eyed Peas 'Joints
& Jams') 'Be Your Girl'
offeres a solid baseline and keys that sees Teedra's soothing
vocals tell the story of the age old adage of unreturned love
from a distance.
Taken from her debut album
called 'Complex Simplicity'
(in stores July 6th) be on the look out for this one as it does
grow on you (really) - an excellent track for the soul fan both
young and old. A TY-D
your ear to enjoy - no doubt.
