Meshach Abednego is a gospel blues artist from the Flatbush area of Brooklyn, NY. Meshach’s music invites you into an intimate space with a vocal quality that is haunting and beautiful. The arrangements move effortlessly between graceful jazz arpeggios and jagged blues rhythms – while the subject matter of his lyrics are heartbreakingly honest and revealing.
Meshach began studying classical and jazz guitar at age 23 and continued to play informally for many years. Inspired by the birth of his first son in 2013, Meshach decided to try his hand at writing and composing.
His original song “SMS Blues” is a debut release from an old soul. You can hear the American south in the acoustic arrangement as Meshach uses the gospel chant of “Save My Soul” as a call for redemption. In the recording, Meshach masterfully blends the traditions of jazz, gospel and delta blues to create a uniquely American sound.
The single is a positive sign of what to expect from Mr. Abednego who is working on an EP titled “I AM:” scheduled for release June 21st, 2015. The debut effort will be supported by an American tour in August and limited engagements in London, Paris and Geneva.
