Brooklyn-based quintet Phony Ppl is kicking off their upcoming U.S. tour in the nation’s capital at City Winery, Thursday, Sept. 5.
The tour coincides with the group’s sophomore album, mō’zā-ik, which has 11-tracks blending soul, funk, R&B and more, with each song an extended jam between five musicians playing at their peak. NPR Music premiered the album via First Listen, calling it a “stepping stone for the Brooklyn band as a subconscious vacation for the listener while moving through the world… or maybe even a retreat from it.”
Recorded over four years in various locations including the band’s own home studios, mō’zā-ik was self-produced by the quintet and was mixed by GRAMMY Award winner Qmillion.
Tickets for Phony Ppl’s show at City Winery are $18 to $22 and available for purchase online or by calling (202) 250-2531.
