Music

The best kept secret in music

Press


"MoeDell's music is about sincerity and passion.
Whether you take in a live show as one his captive
audience members or just simply through the speakers,
you will hear music as it is meant to be played. From
the first stroke of his guitar, you will actually feel
his music."
- John Dexter, Esq. EMC Music Company, LLC


"With MoeDeLL's sultry voice, creative lyrics, and inventive guitar, he easily has become the favorite of every crowd I have ever seen him play in front of. It is his style and musical ability that makes him amoung the only artists in the Minneapolis scene that dont require promotion; people simply ask for him by name. His new material is dynamic and fresh and his recent CD is anticipated with baited breath." - Rachel Hager - Paperbag Productions


"MoeDeLL, What a talented singer/songwriter and creative mind. You won't be disappointed." - Rob Ulsh - Master Sound Studio

Bio

Dark, romantic, silly, melancholy, sarcastic, even charismatic comes to mind when describing MoeDeLL and his music. He uses music as "medicine". "There was a lot of pain and hurt from my childhood, but also funny/happy memories too, so I just write about my own experiences from living".

Born on the east coast of Virginia, MoeDeLL was influenced by many styles of music. "I can't say I am influenced by any particular artist or band, but more by people and situations around me." "My grandmother is a huge influence on me and my music, and she probably has no idea".

MoeDeLL is the former singer/songwriter of the Virginia Beach, Virginia. based band Monkey In A Mansuit. M.I.A.M's 2002 release, “Set In Stone”, yielded two singles which received quite a bit of airplay on the east coast. In early 2003, M.I.A.M. took a small break to regroup. While in that process, MoeDeLL started playing a few solo acoustic gigs merely for the fact of not having a backing band, and by the year's end had done well over 200 shows on his own. MoeDeLL released his first solo EP entitled “The Facade”, in May 2004. On “The Facade”, he dives more into singer/songwriter with darker lyrics than had previously shown on any M.I.A.M. material which was more funk/rock. While the lyrics are dark and beautiful, the radio friendly format stays intact on “The Facade”. “This Time” is a stripped down acoustic song receiving airplay on radio and “Sensational” is also seeing airplay. MoeDeLL performs as a solo acoustic artist, and also with his 4 piece band from time to time. The shows take you on an emotional rollercoaster as he occasionally dives into his old funk/jazz ways from Monkey In A Mansuit, playing wah and various effects on the acoustic, and also turning out some great cover songs that you might not expect from him.

In late 2005, MoeDeLL started recording his next full length album, and was signed to Aquarium Records. Aquarium released the album, "Out There", in June of 2006. The new album is loaded with a diversity of acoustic songs and rock songs. MoeDeLL's cover of Blind Melon's "Toes Across The Floor" will be included on the Blind Melon Tribute Album "Twenty Stories Below", and should be released by the end of 2006.
