Mo Pleasure and the Nord Stage 4
Headline Audio is excited to announce the release of our Nord Stage 4 promo featuring Mo Pleasure. As Nord’s exclusive UK & ROI representation we’re putting the instruments and musicians first because for us, it’s always about the music.
“I absolutely love the Nord Stage 4. I’m a very aggressive player who leans into the groove and its dynamic sounds really support me. It’s also very user comprehensive so as soon as you set it up you’re ready to dig in!”
Multi-instrumentalist and producer Morris “Mo” Pleasure has been at the forefront of American popular music for the last three decades and his CV reads like a ‘Who’s Who?’ of popular music.
Mo began his professional career playing with Ray Charles before moving on to working with the likes of George Duke, Christina Aguilera, Chaka Khan, Mary J Blige, Natalie Cole, Stevie Wonder, Roberta Flack and David Foster to name but a few, and he is currently Musical Director for the iconic Bette Midler.
In 1993 he became a member and the Musical Director of the legendary group Earth Wind and Fire and after that went on to play keyboards, trumpet and guitar on Janet Jackson’s 2001 “All for You” tour.
In 2009, Mo became keyboardist for Michael Jackson’s highly anticipated “This Is It” tour which sadly never took place. Mo performed at the pop legend’s memorial concert in Los Angeles. Along with the rest of the This Is It band, Mo is immortalized in the eponymously titled film, the best-selling musical documentary of all time.
Mo was awarded ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ by Jools Holland at the Boisdale Music Awards 2022
