Moose’s fun and romantic pop sound, by turns danceable, silly, and heartfelt, is inspired by his relationship with his wife of 12 years. He started making pop tunes as Valentine’s Day presents for her, and it got out of hand. She gave him the pet name Moose, which is an upgrade from “Moo.” He figures a musician can be named “Seal,” so Moose should be okay. Moose’s tracks are filled with sweet, funny lyrics, jazzy keyboard, guitar, & synths, and funky beats, with a cinematic backdrop of sound effects, movie quotes, and accompanying video montages that bring the words to life. He’ll have you bopping your head and giggling at first listen, and he delivers the love, depth, and complexity to bring you back for another warm run through all the parts that make you smile. Moose was rejected from all the top music schools for jazz piano when he was 18, he picked up guitar in high school because all his friends were doing it, and the upright bass was a present from his wife for his 37th birthday. Moose counts as his influences soul artists, among them Stevie Wonder and Bill Withers, folk singer-songwriters such as Paul Simon and Suzanne Vega, and rock bands with a sense of humor including Talking Heads and They Might Be Giants. When he isn’t making music or spending time with his wife, Moose is busy at his day job as a quant on Wall Street or working on his second doctorate in Electrical Engineering (the first is in Economics). He started his latest music project in 2018.
Moose recently released his latest track entitled “I Got Your Six”, a synth pop tunes that introduces us to his secret lifestyle. It begins with a dark, pulsing synth bass that slowly takes you through the many different faces of evil along this sonic journey. Cleverly placed vocal samples and sneaky sound effects are sprinkled throughout the arrangement to paint a clear picture on what this life of secrecy is like. This fast paced thriller is unlike any love song you will ever hear. Moose holds no secrets and shows us just how big his imagination can be through this awesome electronic arrangement. The lyrics showcase how perfect a team he and his partner can be. Under pressure nothing breaks the bond of the love they share. When it comes to Moose’s wife, his muse and the inspiration behind this son, he always has her Six!
