Meshach Abednego is a gospel blues artist from the Flatbush area of Brooklyn, NY. Meshach’s music invites you into an intimate space with a vocal quality that is haunting and beautiful. The arrangements move effortlessly between graceful jazz arpeggios and jagged blues rhythms – while the subject matter of his lyrics are heartbreakingly honest and revealing.
Meshach began composing gospel blues songs in 2013 when inspired by the birth of his first son in 2013. His original song “Killed the Devil With My Hands” is a debut release from an old soul. You can hear the American south in the acoustic arrangement as Meshach uses the gospel chant of as a bold statement of faith in a turbulent world. In the recording, Meshach masterfully blends the traditions of jazz, gospel and delta blues to create a uniquely American sound.
