Biography

M O S A D I music is orchestrated by poet/vocalist/bassist SHIRLETTE AMMONS who joined with friends NIC SLATON (bass), guitarist CHRIS BEORNER and drummer MATT MACCAUGHAN . Evident in their performance is a commitment to making music that revisits the consciousness of sixties soul, the thump of seventies funk, and the roots of nineties hip hop.

MOSADI has shared the stage with such diverse talents as Destiny's Child, Meshell Ndegeocello, Brian Mcnight, New Edition, Angelique Kidjo, Nick Whitley(The Cherry Valence), Yahzarah (solo Soulstress & former Erykah Badu background Vocalist) and Universal Hip Hop artists Little Brother.

MOSADI's diverse sound fuses well with many different genres of music from funk, hip hop to rock, which is why MOSADI boasts a wide arrangement of influences and has opened & headlined with Indie Rock bands, World Music artists, Jazz, Soul and Hip Hop artists alike.

MOSADI's live performance has delevoped a reputation for bringing audiences together with thought-provoking messages that are reinforced by heavy, infectious grooves and head bobbing drumbeats beneath screaming guitar riffs.

Nominated for a 2005 Indy Music Award by the Independent Weekly for "Best R&B/Soul Group in the Triangle"
