Sassy swinging string band of legendary songsmiths offering ballsy ballads and progressive folk

Biography

In tradition of ancient bards, TheMuseMeant is reminiscent of the renaissance, a time where stories were told by means of song and poetry. Using traditional instrumentation and an elegant presentation - their music is a timeless expression of musical prose and thoughtful arrangement.

Deeply interwoven in the tapestry of TheMuseMeant is a rich history of lore and imagination. Once a perennial favorite of the jamband and festival circuit, ThaMuseMent split up in 2000 after touring relentlessly for eight years – but as 2003 came to a close, the band reunited, in a slightly different realm and are now back on the road. Today the foursome appears more like a string quartet rather than a jamband. The lyrics are consistently introspective and deeply moving, reminding us of our shared human experience and bittersweet journeys through life.

With hundreds of original songs to choose from, this sassy string band of legendary songsmiths plays with a large musical vocabulary – from old-time instrumentals to poetic ballads to swing and revolutionary gospel. Ranging from sparkling vocals to a haunting violin, this act is one of originality and diversity. ThaMuseMeant is comprised of David Tiller on mandolin, Aimee Curl on bass and vocals, Nathan Moore on guitar and Enion Pelta, a classically trained violinist.

In their first eight years the band released five albums, signed with High Sierra Records, played the H.O.R.D.E tour among many other festivals, and shared the stage with such illustrious guests as the String Cheese Incident, Sheryl Crow, Greg Brown, Leftover Salmon, Tragically Hip, James McMurtry and many others.

ThaMuseMeant reminds the listener of days gone by, with magical interludes into the history of music itself. Their unique melodic expression is endured by fans of all ages, which embrace their distinctive yet familiar songs.
