Verve Records est fier d’annoncer la signature du bassiste, chanteur, compositeur et producteur Miles
Miles Mosley sortira le 19 Mai son premier album UpRising Imaginez : si Lenny Kravitz avait engagé un groupe jazz. Le résultat donnerait sans aucun doute Uprising, ce petit bijou créé par Miles Mosley. Le chanteur, bassiste et compositeur est un grand habitué du jazz. Il fait d’ailleurs partie du West Coast Get Down, un collectif de jazz créé dans la ville de Los Angeles, connu notamment pour avoir participé à l’enregistrement de The Epic, le chef d’oeuvre de Kamasi Washington. Et de ses racines jazzy, Miles Mosley a su tirer le meilleur. Si certains morceaux d’Uprising conservent les
codes du jazz classique – on pense notamment au magnifique et très équilibré « More than This » –
d’autres titres ont été balancés avec une touche bienvenue de rock (« Abraham », « Won’t Let L.A. Bring
You Down »…). Que ce soit dans le rock ou dans le jazz, Miles Mosley a une réelle intensité, qu’il arrive
même à défendre a capella, sans le soutien de tout son crew.

Cet album s’inscrit dans la lignée des disques de jazz qui donnent la pêche. Un album qui parviendra
également à plaire à tous les amateurs de très bon jazz, mais aussi de rock harmonieux.

A new partnership with acclaimed artist Miles Mosley. An innovative bass player, vocalist, producer,
composer and arranger, Mosley’s solo album UPRISING featuring the West Coast Get Down collective, will
be available on Verve digitally April 7, with physical CD and vinyl releases slated for May 19 and July 14,

UPRISING has already garnered excitement and attention from critics and fans alike. Entertainment
Weekly called UPRISING one of “13 new releases you need to hear now,” while the first single “Abraham”
was named one of NPR’s ‘Top 100 songs of 2016.” The album debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Contemporary
Jazz Chart and also reached #2 on the iTunes Jazz Album Chart. UPRISING features a dynamic range of
genres and expression that encapsulate Mosley’s magnetic force that defies categorization.
The newly revitalized Verve label is proud to have Miles Mosley join their musical family. President & CEO
of Verve Label Group, Danny Bennett comments, “Miles is a true artist whose aesthetic is perfectly aligned
with the vision and spirit of the new Verve label. His immense and unique talent is winning over legions of
new fans. We are proud to be part of what the future holds for Miles. ”

Miles Mosley comments, “The legacy of Verve is one that has influenced my entire creative life. To
contribute to their amazing history and help usher forward a new era and new sound for Verve is an honor,
a dream come true.”

Miles Mosley has recorded, toured and collaborated with artists including Andra Day, Jason Mraz, Chris
Cornell, Lauryn Hill, Mos Def and Avenged Sevenfold. He co-produced, composed, arranged and performed
on actor Terrence Howard’s debut CD ‘Shine Through It’. He appeared on the Grammy Awards telecast
with the Gnarls Barkley Orchestra, at the Greek Theater with Jeff Beck, at the Staples Center with Rihanna,
and headlined his own project at The Alex Theatre with the Glendale Pops Orchestra. He accompanied
singer Jonathan Davis of rock group Korn through North America and Europe, where he pulled double duty
as the opening performer and as Davis’ solo band bassist. He recorded three tracks on Kendrick Lamar’s
Grammy-winning album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’; and is the upright bass player for long-time band-mate and
West Coast Get Down member, Kamasi Washington’s ‘The Epic’ triple CD release; named one of Rolling
Stone’s and Pitchfork’s “best albums of 2015”.

listed as one of MTV’s Top 10 trailers of 2012, received a Golden Trailer Nomination for Best Music and a

Her” was an official entry for the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. He was commissioned to compose for the
