West Philly fave Chill Moody just announced a short run of tour dates starting at the end of October and taking him along the east coast.

If he’s new to you, all good: Moody is a talented MC equipped with a sleek voice, smart punch lines, and a very catchy flow. His last full-length project was 2015’s TV Made Me Do It, but he’s been releasing a steady stream of singles in the couple years since, and his live band of late has been fantastic — opening for Low Cut Connie at Union Transfer, playing Spruce Street Harbor Park, Firefly and more. Check out theItsGonBeAniceTOUR announcement video and dates below.

Donn T‘s newest track “Clear” featuring Chill Moody is a rhythmic ode to life’s seemingly insignificant constants. The Philadelphia alternative R&B singer recently made her literary debut in a young adult anthology titled Behind the Song, edited by K.M. Walton. Her piece, “Time to Soar,” discusses the inspiration she pulled from Amy Winehouse’s “October Song,” about the late singer’s pet canary.

With the publication of her piece, Donn T took to the studio with Philly’s own Chill Moody to write a new track inspired by her story. The result: “Clear,” which is a companion song to “Time to Soar.” For the story behind the lyrics, she says “For almost 8 months, this bird would appear outside my window at various times of the day and call. The call was distinctive. I created the song around it.” Continue reading →
