Moss Points North is an indie/alternative band that combines distinctive songwriting with warm ambience and carefully-crafted instrumental arrangements. Since meeting at college in 2007, the band has developed an eclectic and distinct sound that draws comparisons to Wilco, Radiohead, My Morning Jacket, and Modest Mouse.

Singer-songwriter Colin Lee, guitarist Pat McCusker, drummer Jeff Samataro, pianist Isaac Richardson, bassist Mitch Stewart and multi-instrumentalists Jordan Maley and Nolan Eley fuse elements of folk, jazz, and rock with an improvisational feel to create the group’s layered and versatile sound.

In 2010, Moss Points North opened for the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra at the Giralda Farms Music and Arts Festival. John Arthur of the Madison Patch noted that the “music transcends genre and is highly listenable for fans of many different styles of music. Moss Points North is the culmination of classically trained musicians working together to blend a vast array of styles”.

Moss Points North released their first EP, The Ghost at The Feast, in May 2011. The six-song album showcases the group’s diverse range of influences. Opener “Setting Sun” features a calypso-like groove, while the impassioned “True Love” builds on a soulful Motown-inspired riff. “The Owls”, one of band’s live set highlights, grows out of a quiet acoustic samba and into a pulsing and frenetic rock number.
