Album Notes
A Brief History:

Ben Henderson was formerly the guitarist of the internationally successful band Bôa.

Bôa was originally a funk band formed in 1993 by drummer Ed Herten, who invited to the band keyboardist Paul Turrell, bassist Alex Caird and his school friend Steve Rodgers on guitar and vocals.

Steve's younger sister, Jasmine Rodgers, was invited to sing the chorus part of one of their first songs called "Fran", and she soon became the lead singer of the group.

Ben Henderson was recruited shortly afterwards to play saxophone.

Their first live performance was in 1994 at London venue "The Forum", and they were well received by the audience. In the summer of the same year, Herten left the band, and they recruited a new drummer, Lee Sullivan. He brought a rockier feel to the group's sound augmented by Henderson's migration from sax to guitar. Ben found the guitar a more useful composition tool, and ditched the sax in favour of the Les Paul guitar.

Bôa honed their live performances with many gigs in across the South of England and, in 1996, they accepted a recording contract with a Japanese Company, Polystar. Although the album was recorded and produced in the UK, Jasmine and Steve traveled to Japan in 1998 to promote their debut album "Race of a Thousand Camels", which was released only in that country.

The first single, called "Duvet", was used as the opening theme of a new anime series of that time called Serial Experiments Lain. The international popularity of Lain introduced anime fans all around the globe to bôa.

In 2000, Ben Henderson left Bôa and formed Moth with his wife, the talented singer songwriter Tina Henderson.
Tina Henderson originally studied under vocal trainer Celia Civic, where she received classical and choral voice coaching.

Moth have been a constantly evolving project, with live performances and gigs leading to the release of their debut album, "Songs for the Lost" in 2002. Moth's approach of blending old and new styles of music, and recording with both vintage and modern equipment, creates an individual style that runs parallel with Bump and Thumper's general ethos.

Moth have written well over seventy songs, and have performed live at venues throughout the UK. With the combination of traditional and modern songwriting styles, alongside both old-fashioned and cutting-edge production values, Moth have created and shaped a totally unique style of their own.

Featured Review - Cross Rhythms Magazine (Issue 70)

"Effectively, Moth are singer/songwriter Tina Henderson and her husband Ben, and this debut album features a mammoth selection of 15 tunes that are essentially pop in style -but don’t be fooled!

Strong in melody but quirky in delivery, this is grown up music, and the duo have clearly laboured in the studio to create something that will appeal to those who are serious about music.

There’s plenty of creativity here and I particularly like “Driftwood” with its samples of seagulls opening and closing the gorgeous acoustic track. Elsewhere, old technology meets state of the art on tracks like “Crown” and “Clouded” which both employ some old fashioned keyboard sounds.

The band know how to create atmosphere on tracks like “Approval” whilst employing some rock riffs on “New Money”. Impossible to easily categorise, Moth surprise at every musical turn and the only thing which is consistent is Tina Henderson’s excellent voice and the strength of the songwriting.

Creative and surprising, how I wish there were more Christian albums that could be described like that."

9/10 Mike Rimmer


What Moth say about themselves:

"We wanted to write some songs that were catchy and listenable, yet at the same time different and impossible to pigeonhole. The lyrics are aimed at people who actually listen!

We've tried to use a mix of old and new technology; really old technology, like 1950's reel-to-reel tape machines and vintage analogue effects, and totally new technology, like software synthesisers, and hard disk recording. Traditional instruments, such as the acoustic double bass, get played alongside cutting-edge instruments, like Roland V-Drums.

We've used dusty antique instruments, such as the Harmonium and the Benjo (yes, that IS how you spell it; it's an ancient english instrument Ben owns - half banjo, half saxophone. I've never seen another Benjo anywhere!), but recorded them in ultra modern recording environments with virtual rooms and transparent walls.

We've taken old styles, ranging from the 60's through to the 90's, and peppered them with modern production techniques. Finally, we've tried to blend each of these unique elements together, to see what the result would be.

The result of our experiment is what you'll find on the "SONGS FOR THE LOST" CD! Enjoy!"

Something beautiful that you'll be glad to of discovered
Plain and simple, this album is good. Its something different, it beautiful, and its hard to describe. Its not the cookie cutter music you usually hear. You'll be glad to put this in your collection, and if not then just to have heard it is pleasurable enough. I hear myself humming songs like "New money" and "Driftwood" as I work. The distinct voice of Tina Henderson does something to you, I dont know what, but its a good thing. Whether you're listening to the music, her voice, or the lyrics you'll find yourself into these songs. I can relate to a good chunk of these songs since they are all songs about something. Whatever this beautiful thing is, its good, its good music for people who love good music.

Unique and heartfelt. Real music for real music lovers.
This CD mixes eclectic musical sensibilities with a crusading message. When musicians have something to say they make music like this. Songs From The Lost is personal and universal. The singing is great. Give it a chance.
