Moa is a band from Charlotte, North Carolina, known for their ethereal, dream-like sound. Their debut album, Collider, is a cinematic collection of songs featuring David Driscoll on guitar, Lindsey Ryan as vocalist and keyboardist, and drummer Chris Walldorf adding swaths of ambient electronic sounds. Bassist Claudio Ortiz joined the band in 2018.
Their song “Under Your Skin” was featured in the Netflix docuseries, Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer.
“Hailing from a small South Carolina town, multi-instrumentalist Madison Lucas took up songwriting as a way to understand and communicate the awkward and unrealized anxieties that often plague creative people growing up in uninspiring environments. A move to Charlotte in 2013 introduced Lucas to accomplished bassist, Harry Kollm (Time Sawyer, Asleep in the Weeds, Jon Linker Band), whose varied veteran experience propelled Lucas to get serious about forming a full band, thus bringing Modern Moxie into existence. After marrying in 2016, Lucas and Kollm spent their first year as husband and wife recording with Columbia, SC producer, Kenny McWilliams, to create a labor of love called Claw Your Way Out. Bringing in guitarist Phil Pucci (Pullover, Serfs, Landless, Rnie) and drummer Charlie Weeks, the four-piece became a solidified line up. Both Pucci and Weeks dove headfirst into adding their distinctive textures into Modern Moxie’s still unrecorded songs and headed into Archer Avenue Studio in December 2018 to record the final five tracks for CYWO.” – Shirley Griffith, CLTure
