Bio: Gathering Moss is a melodic/acoustic/garage rock trio that purrs, growls, whimpers and roars. Thoughtful lyrics and stripped down sound for those who crave a change from the over arranged. We're bound to grow on you. --History?: Tom likes to listen to rock and roll music like V.U., R.E.M. and XTC...See Full Bio
Our video for "Beautiful Still" has reached the top 25 in the John Lennon Songwriting / Video Competition.
“Chicago melodic post-rock Gathering Moss trio combine the meandering lyrics of seminal band like Sonic Youth and Television. Singer Tom Appling isn't blessed with powerful pipes, but they fit to the music which is bit uneven - balancing issues galore. Their self-titled album was recorded on the cheap, but it will appeal to lo-fi aficionados who can appreciate hard work and passion. Gathering has plenty of that and with a capable engineer their next one won't sound so muddy.”
