Monarch Jubilee

by The Moss Brothers Band

Unmistakably Southern rock, but with a surprising funk twist. The songs feature whiskey-rattled vocals telling stories of betrayal and re-connections and phenomenal guitar solos break through, just to make sure you are still paying attention...

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Southern harmony, love and family... Is all that you need"

The seeds of the Moss Brother Band were sown in in rural south Alabama when singer, songwriter, guitarists Jeff and Troy Moss plugged their guitars into amps sitting on the front porch of their family home. That time, and the red dirt that cannot be completely washed from the creases of their skin directly influence the songs you hear today.

On their debut recording “Royal Orleans” the brothers teamed up with the veteran rhythm section of Kevin Dale on bass and David Smith on drums, both with numerous recording projects and tours under their belts. “Royal Orleans” is a stripped down organic record featuring tight vocal harmonies that can only be produced by “blood kin”. Laced with slide guitars, dobro, and mandolin it is both a tribute to the brothers past and a celebration of their emersion in New Orleans music and culture. The record received accolades both domestically and in Europe and helped the band land the cover of French magazine, Bands of Dixie.

For their follow-up effort “Monarch Jubilee” (to be released in the summer of 2014), the band has spiced things up a bit by adding lead vocalist Scott Nutter who in addition to his own solo work also recorded and toured with prog rock outfit Presto Ballet. The new record is much more aggressive and rockin’ featuring Scott’s gritty vocals, the brothers sweet, southern guitar harmonies and the greasy grooves from David and Kevin. Focused on their new home in the Pacific Northwest, but still with a southern accent, “Monarch Jubilee” is a powerhouse.

“Friends, Family, Love….”


MONARCH JUBILEE…”extending the brotherhood!”

…all things must have a beginning. In the case of The Moss Brothers, it started humbly down a red clay dirt road in the backwoods of Alabama. The seed? A father who was a huge Johnny Cash fan and a family that was very musical to boot. This family helped breathe music into their souls. Often having nothing else to do than sit on their porch and play music, the ghosts of Lynyrd Skynryd echoed throughout their endless jam sessions. While other kids were out playing flag football and having BB gun wars…Troy and Jeff were teaching one another how to play guitar, bass and mandolin. As they grew older, few things changed… drinking whiskey, smoking and countless hours of jamming, they got tight as musicians…but even tighter as friends and family! These became known as FAM-JAMS!

…Thirty-four years ago Jeff and Troy started their first band. Between now and then, they have developed a very loyal fan base bringing their “FAM-JAM SHOWS” to their audiences every night. It is still not un-common for fans to approach them and discuss the fact that they haven’t spoken to their family in years…and that their music resonated with them in a way that made them want to reach out to that family. In the case of The Moss Brothers, they continue to create new music because it brings them back to family, friends and love. Their newest album is about coming full circle…Monarch Jubilee is the culmination of three decades of FAM-JAMS.

…loosely defined…a Monarch is a person who reigns over a kingdom or empire and Jubilee is a special anniversary of an event. The Moss Brothers reign over a kingdom of music bread in the backwoods of the deep south, all the while celebrating an album that symbolizes the anniversary of a simple reminder…that each and every one of us recognize the importance of reigning over our own family. And, that sometimes it takes a simple song to re-connect us to those who matter most!
