Raquel Rodriguez / Moorea Masa
$8

Eclectic Soul singer born and raised in Los Angeles, Raquel Rodriguez and crew deliver music with a soulful sound that commands the stage. Raquels live show is engaging and a crowd favorite at clubs and festivals across the country.
     
With a potent blend of 70's funk, 80's pop, and 90's R&B, she serves up sassy, heartfelt  vocals that caught the ears of a number of artists. Whether it's singing background   vocals for artists like Gwen Stefani and Anderson .Paak, opening for bands like Robert Randolph & The Family Band, recording and collaborating with artists such as Moby and Break Science (Adam Deitch, Borahm Lee), she does it all! The LA soulstress has also received airplay and support from music and culture tastemaker Garth Trinidad, DJ at top ranking NPR station KCRW. Her recent follow up to, The 310, produced by Nigel Hall (Lettuce) and Sam Brawner is due to be released this Spring!


Moorea Masa & The Mood - Songs have always been there for Moorea Masa (pronounced More-ray-uh Mah-sa), being raised in the musical mecca of Portland, Oregon. The daughter of an Italian immigrant father and an African-American mother born abroad, this singer/songwriter/guitarist has been making music for as long as she can remember. At fifteen, she was already looking for chances to perform by sneaking into local clubs, where she was lovingly adopted into the vibrant community of Portland musicians. Moorea then left to study at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts in England, and spent time living in a cave and soaking in flamenco music in Granada, Spain.



Returning home to the Pacific NW, Moorea began her music career in earnest. Not just writing and performing her own original material, she recorded with El Vy and The Decemberists, sang with soul legend Ural Thomas (who appears on her new album), and toured with Allen Stone. As a solo artist, she's garnered major praise from Emily King, Corinne Bailey Rae, The Motet, Nick Waterhouse, and many more. Now 25 years old, Moorea has been touring with crooner KD Lang, and is currently preparing to release her debut LP.



Shine A Light, the new record from Masa, comes from the depths of a sometimes-troubled childhood and expresses a belief that the unexamined life is not worth living. "I'm really sharing my whole heart in this album," says Masa. "This year I've really been digging deep into my history, my own learning lessons, and the state of the world. I feel like I took a light and shined it into all the darkness and beauty that I was too scared to look at." At times bright and hopeful, other times dark and mournful, the record (co-produced by Jeremy Most of Emily King fame) is an exquisitely-crafted gem that reveals a new gleaming facet upon every listen. Topics such as love, loss, hidden pain, and the politics of being a woman are all explored with deft musicianship, clever production, and Masa's flawless voice carrying the songs into our hearts and souls.
