High energy Rock and Roll, is best when played at full volume. With ages ranging from just 16 to 22, Moxy and The Influence are four young Southern California rockers who bring it with power and drive to every performance. Their original female-fronted sound is a modern mix of all that was great in the 80’s hard rock scene, and all that continues to move audiences today.
Performing mostly original material, except for an occasional cover, the band brings forth their own energy and style. Bursting onto the Southern California rock scene in late 2013, this young band surprised audiences with hit-worthy original rock songs combined with a high-energy stage performance complete with headbanging and crowd interaction.
Catchy lyrics infused with a message of individualism span generations and touch minds and hearts and inspire to greater things. Their face-melting performances have been witnessed at such iconic venues as The Whisky A Go-Go, House of Blues Anaheim, The Orange County Fair, Coach House, M15, Silverlake Lounge, and Chain Reaction.
Moxy and The Influence received an early industry nod with an HMMA (Hollywood Music in Media Award) nomination in 2013 and an OC Music Awards nomination in early 2014. On December 31, 2013, the band was notified that they had won a $100,000 fully-produced music video from BigAndFamous.com. That video (ME4ME) was released in summer 2014. Their next music video for the hit song ALIVE was directed by C.G. Ryche and released in early 2015. The end of 2014 brought more accolades. Moxy and The Influence received the HMMA award for the 2014 Rock Song of the Year for their song “Vampire Valentine” and won an Indie Battle of the Bands competition shortly after their One-Year-Anniversary.
Their song “Alive”was nominated for another HMMA Award in 2015. They have been played on dozens of online and terrestrial broadcasts all over the world and are swiftly gaining momentum in the local and national music scene. In June 2015 they will be headlining the BREATHE SCREAM SURVIVE Tour on the West Coast of the US.
The Moxy and The Influence will influence you! They will rock you! They will quicken your pulse and awaken your soul. They might just melt your face, but it will be great and glorious. I just love this Band! Who said “Ladies can’t rock?” You’ll understand when you see this young band that has extreme talent and are on the road to success.
I want to Thank Miss Moxy Anne and Her Manager Elisa Mohr for being in The Ravens Nest with me, Check Out Moxy Anne and her Powerful Band.
Peace & Love,
Members: Moxy Anne, Sydney Ellen, Shea Hamilton; Genre: Rock ‘n Roll; Home Town: Costa Mesa, CA
