Emerging R&B/Soul artists Boy Soda and Taj Ralph are hitting the road! The Sydney-based acts have today announced their co-headline tour, bringing new music to audiences across the east coast.
Kicking off at Melbourne's Yah Yah's on March 17, the run of shows will continue on to Wollongong where the pair will hit the stage at La La Las, before wrapping up at Waywards in Sydney on March 25.
“One of my earliest Sydney shows was with Taj and I’ve been a fan of him as an artist and a producer ever since. He has amazing taste, and it really shows in his music and live set so I’m so excited to be on the road with him!” BOY SODA shares.
Ralph adds, “BOY SODA is one of the few people I’ve worked with that has such strong diversity and unity in his music, blending RnB, soul, and hip hop influences so smoothly. That’s the shit I love about music and I’m so keen to join forces with him on stage!”
Late last year, BOY SODA treated us to the release of his debut mixtape, YC-TAPE: Vol. 1. Tapping producers Finbar, Club Angel, Jarryd James, Lvther, Lovemedo and Tentendo, the genre-blurring body of work brings together ten tracks drip-released throughout December to form one larger body of work. Effortlessly weaving together threads of R&B, hip-hop, G-Funk, soul and pop, the project showcases the musicians hybrid approach to creating and his prowess as both a songwriter and performer.
In 2021, Ralph dropped his debut EP, Walls 2 Break, which continued his genre-defying exploration of sound, fusing together R&B sonics with threads of jazz and indie-pop. The musician unveiled a string of singles across 2022, including his collaboration with edith, Falling Away, before releasing Potential and Right Mind, with the latter featuring Yasmina Sadiki
