In February of 2022, Moses and Ludwig were invited to perform at the World Trade Expo in Dubai, where they received multiple standing ovations for their classical- and film-inspired new compositions. Moses also performed as a soloist at the Expo. He then flew to Los Angeles for a 3-month intensive, where he composed and recorded his first solo original album, of cinematic and classically influenced soul music. The album was mixed and mastered by Nick Patrick and Peter Schwier (producers of Andrea Bocelli, Aretha Franklin) and is set to be released at the beginning of 2023.
