Band Website: BOX OF MOXIE:

Box of Moxie’s body of work is a collaboration between Virginia band founder and Frontman Stephen Jacques & Nationally recognized Multi-Instrumentalist, Producer & Recording Engineer Alan Weatherhead (The Cardigans, Cracker, Magnolia Electric Co., Camper Van Beethoven, Hotel Lights, Sparklehorse). Alan is an exceptional, prolific & insightful musician with an extensive list of credits in the Music industry. Stephen (vocals, guitar, lyrics) began writing the 1st of over 60 songs & ballads following the crash of the 2009 American Real Estate market. A silver lining of sorts as Moxie was launched out of the starting blocks

Box of Moxie has been described as a lot of things over the years: alt-rock, Americana, Folksy Rock, Avant-garde. But mostly, there’s a lifetime of working in the real world that has essentially delivered the goods in terms of the lyrics by Stephen. He spent over 25 years working before the first lyrics were ever penned – as an engineer, custom builder, TV show host, and actor- strumming his Acoustic along the way. Who would’ve known such prolific songs, beginning in 2011 with the release of “Intrepid Souls”, would come from that career path. Yet these real life experiences seem to reveal all of their truth in the varied topics he takes on in a delicate, beautiful and often humorously posed fashion. He’s weathered the storms, whether as a business owner or artist striving to make a living.

With a worldwide fan base- and despite all the changes in the internet and music scene itself, which can turn musicians’ lives upside down, the Moxie fan base is growing and rolling down the tracks. One day Stephen may be interviewing with a California Public Radio Station, the next day a London Radio Station is doing a special on one of his tunes. The goal has been to write and sing what we he believes in and not influenced by outside sources. In Stephen’s view any other approach would ruin the artistic intent and be phony. The goal has always been to capture a truthful deep feeling, content, and the impetus for recording in the first place. To hopefully create Beautiful timeless songs.

Box of Moxie’s 6th studio effort entitled "Submission Admission", departs the standard Alt Rock folksy vibe, boasting Love songs. We see this prolific American band marrying contrasting rock elements in producing lead off songs such as “Irish Sea Lover”, "Hatteras Surf Buzz, “In the Palm of My Hand”, and “Train Car Romance”. But this departure still captures the good energy and upbeat rock vibe that Stephen has always embraced and envisioned to always create something fun and interesting, keeping us on our toes. Written and Recorded in Richmond, Virginia there’s almost a sweetness- not dissimilar to the honeysuckle scents that enveloped his walks through the trails and river paths that straddle the James River scene- of his childhood. The fifth release Surfing the American Dust Bowl may have harnessed the energy and rock revealing the Dust Bowl strife itself yet we can still see that moxie and energy carried forward, that is to say with a softer touch. This juxtaposition, while so artfully approached, is what Stephen intended and was something captured while walking the streets of Richmond, Virginia in the Summer of 2017. So many artisans and friendly folks from this charming southern town found their way into these songs; Whether leaving a dinner spot or crossing the street for a quick hug with a new friend near a corner bar dance spot, those moments were infused in his soul and speak to the lyrics in a profound, engaging and meaningful love spirit of sorts.

We thank Legendary Alternative Producer Alan Weatherhead (The Cardigans, Cracker, Magnolia Electric Co., Camper Van Beethoven, Hotel Lights, Sparklehorse) & Publicist Subrosa Curation- Portland, Oregon.
