After two serious shows at J.A.W from Kamasi Washington & the infamous West Coast Get Down Collective, we are more than thrilled to welcome bassist, vocalist and composer Miles Mosley together with the core West Coast Get Down band feat. Tony, Cameron, Ryan and Dontae to present his own debut album as bandleader.
MILES MOSLEY stepped into the light with magnetic force this year following the release of his new single ‘ABRAHAM’, garnishing critical acclaim from worldwide press such as NPR, The Guardian, BBC Radio, The FADER, and Bass Player Magazine. The Los Angeles-based upright bass virtuoso and composer has reached impressive professional heights in recent years, and his full length album has been eagerly anticipated.
Now the moment audiences across the globe have been waiting for is finally here: Miles Mosley announces the release of his album UPRISING, scheduled to be released worldwide on digital and vinyl formats on January 27, 2017. Ahead of the album release in January, Miles Mosley is offering the second single in the powerful track “Young Lion.” As the opening floodgates to UPRISING, “Young Lion” bursts with energy from every seam. Scorching horn lines, slick keys and a propulsive rhythm section unlike any other in modern music, the end of the track is supplanted with a mind-bending effects laced bass solo from Miles that shows why he’s one of the most respected bassists alive.
Scheduled to hit digital outlets September 16th, “Young Lion” is filled with gusto in lyric and music form. A perfect beginning to the story of UPRISING. It encapsulates the dynamic range of genres and expression that traces the rest of the album. UPRISING serves as his most personal and defining climb throughout his longtime career in the music industry. For Miles, it combines
a deep love of songwriting with an innovative, truly one-of-a-kind ability on the Upright Bass. A balance he has worked decades to execute with precision, quality and taste.
