Big Mosey / Bio

10+ Gigs Booked through Sonicbids! Artist Information

Big Mosey explores the unhinged emotions, surreal stories, and exposed moments of songwriters who yearn to leave the industrial city behind. This rock band’s dirty grooving tunes nod to grunge groups like Pearl Jam and alt-blues influences like the White Stripes, yet ache and growl in the vein of Howlin' Wolf or Tom Waits – delirious and victorious.

Big Mosey’s debut EP, Homeward At Daybreak, (released with Çöñàr Record) was co-produced with Jeremy Sklarsky, whose recent works include Freelance Whales’ Weathervanes (Frenchkiss / Mom + Pop Records) and released to a packed house at Arlene’s Grocery on April 14th 2011. The album’s quaking music roars and undulates triumphantly, offering release and solidarity in a concrete-filled city.

Through months of performing around the northeast in 2010, Big Mosey has developed a raucous live show, captured with the recent praise, “an onlooker has a hard time stopping the replay button in their mind after seeing [their] incredible show...Big Mosey put on a spectacle.”

This month, Big Mosey also had the opportunity to play a small tour in Norway, performing in Oslo, Sjoa and most notably in Trondheim at Samfundet (Student Society), where promoter/booker Pernille Willadsen said that the band was, "...the best act we've ever had in here".

Big Mosey is currently #96 on The Deli Magazine's:
