Uncovering upcoming artists and bands, as well as niche brands and events has always been an aim for All I’ve Heard. So it’s no surprise that we’re such supporters of the Red Bull Music Academy (RBMA). The Red Bull Music Academy is a series of music workshops and festivals, traveling across the globe whilst providing a platform for those making a difference in the modern music scene.
The Australian leg of the RBMA has seen a Red Bull hosted stage at last years Splendour In The Grass, while their monthly club nights have seen the likes of De La Soul, James Pants, Daedelus and Exile on Australian shores. Continuing its monthly club nights into April will see the Australian debut of Seven Davis Jr, a future soul veteran who has spent much of his career behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.
Known as Seven, he’s been active across the music industry for the last 15 years. The California-based all-rounder has focused on his writing and recording, whilst anonymously assisting other artists with their own careers. Seven’s music has now found its way into the hands of Kutmah. In July 2013 his track Thanks was featured on Kutmah’s Worldwide Family Vol. 2 compilation for Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings. The gospel-trained singer’s momentum has built from there, with his current fusion of R&B, funk and house.
After taking Europe by storm, Australia is next on the cards thanks to the RBMA. You can catch him at the Goodgod Small Club in Sydney on Thursday the 10th April with supports from Cassius Select, EdSeven (Lioness) and Forty Love (Post). Then on Saturday the 12th of April at Melbourne’s Boney, supported by the likes of Australia’s RBMA NYC 2013 participant Julien Love, Funk Bast*rd (Darker Than Wax) and Harvey Sutherland.
