Still working on that hot first release.



Once described as a “musician who shouldn’t be a musician,” Mesa, AZ-based singer/songwriter/musician Gene Moran may be hard to categorize but he sure isn’t hard to listen to. 

Take some old classic country 45s from the Hank Williams school of lonesome, add a heavy dose of alt-rock, grunge and fuzz (ala Dinosaur Jr. and the like) and throw in some old school Arizona desert rock of the Naked Prey, Greyhound Soul and Giant Sand variety. Multiply all that by some better-than-average free childhood guitar lessons by a talented relative and divide it by an accident at birth, subtract the use of fine and gross motor skills (cerebral palsy), and add a wheelchair which results in a unique and distinctive playing style.

Now transmute the sound in your head and make it a dozen or so times better than what you’re already imagining. Yeah. This guy’s the real deal. 

A former teacher, a small-town troubadour and a lifelong dabbler in the live music realm, Moran recently traded in being in front of a classroom for being in front of an audience. Both as a solo musician and as part of Tempe, AZ’s Mean Gene and the Soul Scorchers, the duo Rockin’ Chair, The Blinding Suns, and San Diego, CA based Mean Gene and the Green Sardines, Moran’s rock and roll journey may just be beginning, but this is a man that’s bound to go places. Catch him while you can!
