NPR Music released a Tiny Desk Concert of the Philadelphia-based hip-hop/R&B duo &More comprised of singer Donn T and rapper Chill Moody. The group, who will release their debut album Ethel Bobcat on April 5 via D-tone Victorious/nicethingsMUSIC, performed “My Own Light,” “Future Come Around” and “WHOA.”
Recently, &More released a video for their single “WHOA” featuring Public Enemy’s Chuck D. NPR’s World Cafe said, “There comes a point in the bleak landscape of current events where those paying attention are left exhausted and speechless. Philadelphia R&B/hip-hop combo &More has a word for that moment when there are no words left: ‘WHOA.’
Watch the NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert:
&More’s debut album Ethel Bobcat is a musical mix of hip-hop & inspired soul that alternates between themes of power, love and social justice. The duo ride atop the edgey tracks by producerBen “Private School” Thomas (Shawn Smith, Jazmine Sullivan, Ty $) and guitarist/producer Jake Morelli (Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Esperanza Spalding, The Roots).
NPR Music recently included &More on the Austin 100, NPR Music’s list of 100 artists to see at SXSW, and said, “the song finds rapper Chill Moody and singer Donn T unpacking the many ways the country processes racism and police violence as part of an onslaught of information (and disinformation).”
&More will tour throughout the rest of 2019 including stops at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl, Philadelphia’s Johnny Brenda’s, Pickathon, and Roots Picnic.
