Beaming in from the outer limits of soul-pop, multi-talented Jamaican-American musician Masego is looking back to move the genre forward. Citing big band jazz icon Cab Calloway as his guiding spirit, Masego makes what he calls ‘TrapHouseJazz’, a fusion of neo-soul, hip-hop and futuristic beats laced with the sound of jazz and his singular sax playing.
Masego broke out with his 2017 hit ‘Navajo’, which was followed by his 2018 debut Lady Lady and its smash hit collaboration with French star FKJ, ‘Tadow’. His 2020 album Studying Abroad: Extended Stay, featuring the hit ‘Mystery Lady’, was Grammy-nominated for Best Progressive R&B Album, while 2021 saw him take production duties on Drake’s ‘Champagne Poetry’, the lead track from the superstar’s chart-topping Certified Lover Boy, and release the singles ‘Garden Party’, featuring OutKast’s Big Boi and JID, and the old-school soul jam, ‘Yamz’.
Vivid LIVE marks Masego’s Sydney Opera House debut, where he’ll bring his singular RnB alchemy to the stage for one night only at the Joan Sutherland Theatre.
