Moodset is a jazz and R&B band comprised of notable and award-winning musicians from Toronto. Featuring Alexa Belgrave (keys), Caleb Klager (bass), Mackenzie Read (drums), Madeleine Ertel (trumpet), and Jacqueline Teh (voice), the group is known for its soulful R&B flair combined with rhythmic grooves and luscious jazz harmonies. Moodset’s debut album “Let’s Talk” defies expectations and bursts through the boundaries of what modern jazz could be. With an iconic sound reminiscent of Robert Glasper’s “Glasper Experiment” and infused with the modernity of Hiatus Kaiyote and the nostalgia of the Doobie Brothers, Moodset is its own individual blend of jazz-informed techniques, R&B vibes, and memorable melodies. A band co-led by two women of colour with a goal of making jazz accessible to all, Moodset continues to break down the barriers between genres, attracting and engaging listeners of all generations and identities.
