Abe Reid and the Spikedrivers
Abe Reid is an artist in the truest sense; he got it honest and delivers it just the same. Having gained national attention and a Subpop Records recording contract with The Blue Rags, Abe Reid has been there and lived to tell about it. He tells it so well in fact that he won the International Blues Competition as a solo artist in 1999. His songs are real and delivered in a style all his own.
The VIKING MOSES was initiated by Southern Missourian Brendon Massei in 2003. The band has a dynamic, rotating cast of both established and obscure musicians worldwide, and is currently based in Northern Appalachia (USA).
More straight forward rock/soul than weird/folk as most of their contemporaries seem to be marketed, Viking Moses' recordings are very accessible in convention, though live shows normally tend to have an unconventional approach, being hosted in unorthodox venues, often having assembled bands night-of, using members of support bands or strangers in the audience. Both aspects are delivered with utmost soul, passion, and humility, and always offer fans and strangers an experience which is unique and often contrary to expectation.
Viking Moses has been finding very fair attention since 2004, thanks to Devendra Banhart's "Golden Apples..." compilation and good words, followed by a signing by Alan McGee (Creation Records founder, and manager of Oasis, Jesus & Mary Chain, Primal Scream, Teenage Fanclub, Mogwai, Libertines, etc.) which has found Viking Moses high acclaim in UK and Europe, and kept them heavily active in that part of the world these past few years.
