Mura Masa is a platinum-selling, Grammy-Award-winning artist, producer and curator who resists simple categorisation. His debut, self-titled album was released in 2017 to widespread acclaim, featuring some of the world’s biggest artists collaborating with a then-Guernsey-based teen on his own, thrilling take on what modern pop music should sound like.
Having surpassed 2 billion streams, been nominated for an Ivor and headlined shows from Alexandra Palace and Warehouse Project to festivals around the world, 2020’s followup, ‘R.Y.C’, was another bold reinvention in sound and style from Mura Masa. A concept record interrogating nostalgia, the project featured the likes of slowthai, Tirzah, Georgia, and won Alex his first NME Award as the world went into lockdown shortly after its release.
A young artist determined to make a difference, Alex also launched a training scheme in 2020 designed to provide training and opportunity for black women in the touring and live sector, whilst working on much more Mura Masa music to follow ‘2gether’ into 2022.
