Biography

mox-y / mox-ie
n. Slang.

Moxy is the music project of songwriter / vocalist / guitarist Jeanette Keim. Jeanette was born and raised in a beach town by the Jersey Shore, population 800; hairspray: yes. After majoring in improvisational songwriting in High School, Jeanette peddled her boat across the bay to New York City to continue her voracious studies in becoming spontaneously funny.
While in New York, Jeanette met with producer Dante Mackay, and all attention became focused on music. Initially impressed by his ability to accessorize fashionable clothing, Dantes ear for lush production and his ability to brand a unique sound proved a perfect match for Jeanettes straightforward songwriting.
And thus, Moxy was born a petulant and pouty, but nonetheless healthy & robust melodic rock baby.
After a series of short tours and recordings, Moxy produced the EP "Cloudy With a Chance of Sunshine" (2006), followed by their first full length recording "The Bittersweet Spot", to be released in late 2007 via the bands website: www.moxymusic.com.
Tracks from the EP have been heard on KROQ, Indie 103.1, and have received raves from Jane Magazine, Time Out, LA Weekly, and many other publications with impeccable taste.
In the meantime, Jeanette has collaborated with writer / producer Andy Sturmer on a few projects, including the theme for the popular animated series, Ben 10, seen in 160 countries, and 88 million U.S. households.
Moxy contrasts melody and lush production with witty, dark and sometimes naughty observations on love, life and the pursuit of "normalcy" in surreal Tinsletown - where bumping into your favorite game show host in the frozen food section of your local supermarket is a likely reality.
With influences ranging from T Rex to Blondie to The Cars, Moxys lyrical no nonsense approach adds a dash of bitter to the sweet sound and polished production.
In recipe terms, Moxy is:
*Two parts honest songwriting
*One part lollipop rock
*Add a smidgen of retro,a dash of naughty, & throw in a pair of vintage gogo boots for good measure. Bake for 45 minutes, never let cool, enjoy.
