Moss Kena shares similarities with Sam Smith and Maxwell—all three are romantic singer-songwriters who command a room and effortlessly glide between styles and eras. And like the two icons, this West London R&B artist feels like a deep-rooted soul tucked in a modern singer’s suit, fully in touch with current trends. His composed voice can scrape the bottom of desperation with the best of them (“Better Off Without My Love”) as well as elevate a room (“Touch,” “Ain’t the Same”). He aims for the heart with clever metaphors about complex relationships (“Silhouette”). With an Amy Winehouse forearm tat and a Ministry of Sound cosign, Moss Kena is one to watch.
