Moody and the Mellow are striving for, and sonically driving away from, everything familiar to our daily consumer lives. No robot cranks, buzzes, saw turns, or laser shots; instead, they are turning music inward back to its roots in folk, Americana, and rock.
Moody and the Mellow came to be in the summer of 2012, when singer and frontman Paul Moody asked a few friends — Kyle Cullerton, Jon McNulty, and Joe Herald — to accompany him on stage for a one-off performance. What was to be a one-time collaboration quickly transmuted into a record, shows, and a whole lot more.
Earlier this year, Moody and the Mellow hit the studio to record their debut EP, Lovesick Fly, Part One, which was independently released this spring. The EP finds Moody and Co. delivering Jeff Tweedy-like compositions with Dylan-esque lyrical reverie by engaging the audience through rich vocal tones, resounding melodies, and a resonating style that is as stirring as it is infectious. This is especially true on the single “Fly On The Window.”
Moody and the Mellow appear destined to capture the hearts of the Midwest before sweeping your town off its collective feet, one soul-filled earful at a time.
