Rothwell and Moffatt are quickly becoming one of the darlings of the Canadian music scene...in the most unassuming way. Authentic and pure...the bands ability to craft beautiful songs, interpret classics, and put it all together in a musical package that defies bounderies, is undeniable. They are truly a band who connects with their audience and they continue to win the respect and admiration of a growing fan base.

Stephanie, Emily and Jeff have over 10 years of experience together as musicians and friends. They share common musical ground and a passion for music that is apparent to those who have seen them perform over the years. Their performances often offer samplings from their ever expanding catalogue of original tunes, from the famous and to the not so famous, the known and unknown and the deep tracks of 60’s and 70’s folk/rock. Songs that resonate, connect and strike an emotional chord. It's this willingness to go into uncharted waters, to explore new musical directions and to draw on the past, present and future, that makes this band so unique and entertaining.

Backed by a band of experienced, top-notch, seasoned musicians the groups live shows are events that take the audience on a delightful musical journey.

If there is a silver thread that defines Rothwell and Moffatt, it is the bands innate, effortless, ability to blend musical textures and styles and to wrap them in gorgeous vocal harmonies..... 2011 is another year of firsts for the band with plans for a new album, more live dates, and the chance to make even more new friends........
