See the otherworldly Californian-Ghanaian artist sing live in a Sydney church.

Listening to Moses Sumney is a distinctive and unique experience — like floating on a dark cloud with a silver lining, or teetering on a razor's edge between euphoria and melancholia. Armed with nothing but a guitar, a loop pedal and his ethereal pipes, Sumney creates a soft vortex of swirling melodies and rolling rhythms that seem to draw the audience into his world, and away from the corporeal.

Fresh from a UK tour and a collaboration with The Cinematic Orchestra, Sumney is bringing his collection of soulful musings to Sydney Festival for a single night on Saturday, January 14. What's more, he'll be performing in St Stephen's Uniting Church on Macquarie Street. When every song is an experiment of the soul, you know this is one gig worth checking out.

This is one of 15 next-level events to see at Sydney Festival. Check out the whole list.
