High energy Rock and Roll, best when played at full volume. With ages starting at just 16, Moxy and The Influence are four young Southern California rockers who bring it with power and drive to every performance. Their female-fronted sound is a modern mix of all that was great in the 80’s hard rock scene, and all that continues to move audiences today. Performing mostly original material, now and then they feature a cover with their own energy and style.
Bursting onto the Southern California rock scene in late 2013, this young band surprised audiences with hit-worthy original rock songs combined with a high-energy stage performance complete with headbanging and crowd interaction. Catchy lyrics infused with a message of individualism span generations.
Their face-melting performances have been witnessed at such iconic venues as The Whisky A Go-Go, The House of Blues Anaheim, The Orange County Fair, The Coach House, M15, Silverlake Lounge, and Chain Reaction.
Moxy and The Influence received an early industry nod with an HMMA (Hollywood Music in Media Award) nomination in 2013 and an OC Music Awards nomination in early 2014.
On December 31, 2013, the band was notified that they had won a $100,000 fully-produced music video from BigAndFamous.com. That video (ME4ME) was released in summer 2014.
The end of 2014 brought more accolades. Moxy and The Influence received the HMMA award for the 2014 Rock Song of the Year for their song Vampire Valentine, and Music Connection Magazine named the band to their annual Hot 100 Live Unsigned Artists list.
