"Effervescent." "Soulful." "Danceable." When writers try to describe Moxie, they produce bright and passionate adjectives, words that conjure warmth and passion. But the word that seems to stick above all else is "unique." Moxie draws from a wide range of inspiration, collaging the influences of grooves and melodies that span across decades forming together. This crafts a sound that simultaneously evokes the comfort of a classic and the wonder of an entirely new sound. Moxie is made of Rei Kimura's powerful vocals which reminisce of classic soul and blues, Leander Holzapfel's shimmering and dynamic lead guitar voicing colorful chords and bright leads, Daniel Snyder's unbelievably tight grooves which draw jealous looks from metronomes everywhere, and Inky Cohen's basslines which often blur the line into a lead instrument. Together, their influences blend and swirl, creating a hybrid which truly, unambiguously, sounds of Moxie. Following their debut album, The Fall LP, their second record, Flow of Color was released June 1, 2020. They have released the first 4 singles off their upcoming EP, Where The Day Goes.

"Moxie’s performance left the Paper Tiger with an infectious feeling of joy. The amount of excitement that the members were having on stage was shared with those in the crowd, with many delightful moments that put smiles on everyone’s faces, including the band themselves." - Cesar Soto, Staff Writer at The Paisano

“Their mature, assured, and polished delivery is somewhat surprising given that their music is meant to be so danceable and liberating. But that’s what makes Moxie so special... In a time of collective longing, Flow of Color couldn’t be more needed.” - Michael Guarino of Nuance Magazine
