BandRock

RIFLE STREET MUSIC is honest, no-holds-bared, rock born of self-exploration and pain. Main songwriter/vocalist Dominic Bodell's personal angst is bolstered by the rock solid rhythm section of Jesse Mills, Nate Moosman, and Jeff Anderson to form Salt Lake City's most promising band.

Biography

Salt Lake City, the home of RIFLE STREET MUSIC, is filled with conflict. And conflict inspires sanctuary.

For Dominic Bodell (vocals/guitar), Nathan Moosman (guitar), Jesse Mills (drums) and Jeff Anderson (bass), music is their sanctuary. Their ‘altar’ of choice? - Rifle Street Music.

A gifted self-critic, Dominic Bodell, converted personal failures, pain, dispair, and internal struggle into song in an apartment above SLC’s Rifle Street in 2003. Bodell writings became the blueprint for Rifle Street Music, including the ready-for-radio “Exchange Myself” and “Listen To The Radio.” The honest and deeply personal catharsis of these songs rings true to fans, musicians, and music industry insiders.

In 2004, Bodell sent demos to Los Angeles producer, David Eaton, whose productions for unsigned artists (Dynamite Hack “Boyz-N-Tha Hood” and The Polyphonic Spree) have topped radio playlists and lead to major label signings. “I get tons of CD’s from young bands trying to be stars,” producer David Eaton says. “Some people try to write about life. Dominic’s life forces him to write. That’s what makes his music meaningful.” Then Bodell joined forces with a drummer and headed to LA and recorded a 3-song single, which drew great interest from East Coast A&R reps.

In early 2004, Nathan Moosman relocated from his Midwest roots to embrace SLC and soon joined Rifle Street Music. Drawn by the songs, Moosman says, “I really dig it because it’s totally honest. One of the most invigorating things about being a part of Rifle Street Music is playing with musicians who all share the necessary chemistry to get the job done.”

Jesse Mills was tending bar at the Hard Rock Café, SLC as the first incantation of RSM took the stage. After two songs, Mills had found his fantasy band. With the departure of the first RSM drummer, Mills says, “I memorized every song Rifle Street Music had ever recorded” and brought his best game to the audition. With his dedication, skills, and enthusiasm, the addition of Mills was a no-brainer.

In late 2005 Rifle Street Music welcomed bassist Jeff Anderson. For Anderson, playing with RSM is a natural. “They are the most talented group of musicians I had stumbled across,” Anderson says, and thus, Rifle Street Music is complete.

In 2006, Rifle Street Music have signed a production deal with David Eaton Productions, completing a new 3-song single, and written additional songs that will be recorded for a forthcoming album scheduled for fall of ‘06.

With Dominic Bodell as architect, Rifle Street Music has become a voice for personal struggle. Moosman, Mills, and Anderson give life and stability to that voice. Rifle Street Music is… honest, humble, heart-felt rock.
