The Moves Collective
Imagine funk-grass, gypsy soaked and happily drenched in groove. An irresistibly dance-heavy pace, stampeding through genre-blending journeys that resolve into timeless melodies. This is why The Moves Collective is turning heads in the USA with their performances. This band has become a live staple in the Golden State, dropping a myriad of musical worlds on-stage, dedicated to keeping you Movin’ & Groovin’!
The Moves Collective have proven to turn heads all over the West with their Funk-Grass music, having shared the stage with greats like Leftover Salmon, Hot Buttered Rum, Midnight North, The Dustbowl Revival, Joe Marcinek and Fruition. Recently winning ‘Best Americana’ in the 2017 San Diego Music Awards, the group just joined the impressive roster of Ever Upward Entertainment out of Colorado. Between tours this Summer, the band will be working on their third record, expected to be released this Fall.
A vision that has humbly been funded through crowd-sourced backers, The Moves’ music weaves tales of love, endurance and growth, merging them with manifested vision; crafting a beautifully conscious piece of living art told through original compositions and improvised jams.
‘Two Miles High’ is the 2016 release from The Moves Collective, produced by Grammy Award Winner, Alan Sanderson at Pacific Beat Studios in San Diego, California . Having worked with groups like The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Rusted Root and Elton John, Sanderson’s contribution in recording this eclectic band yielded a powerful yet rootsy sound that meshed wonderfully, with the tight, crisp and hard hitting production at Pacific Beat Studios.
Drop Dead Red
This boisterous, soulful band is one of a kind - lead singer Carly DuHain's powerful and smoky vocals are hauntingly paired with her beautifully orchestrated band. They'll have your glasses raised and your senses tingling with their custom blend of Alternative Rock and soul-packed delivery
Karen Dezelle is a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California who sings indie folk, with pop, alt-country, and americana influences. She writes and composes her own music and has played at famed venues and festivals across the United States and UK, including SXSW, the House of Blues, The Hotel Cafe, Ain’t Nothin But Blues Bar, and The Bitter End. After the success of her 2013 and 2014 albums, “Lost and Found” and "Bloom, Unfold, Wither," Dezelle set to work crafting beautifully emotional songs that make up her latest EP, "Room For Two," which was released August 2016.
At the center of Karen’s music is honest story-telling, with lyrics that are both relatable and deeply personal. She combines authentic stories with emotive, soothing vocals, building instrumental flourishes, and cross-genre musical experimentation. With music that mixes positivity with uncertainty, she reflects on the human disposition in a way that elevates her songwriting and engages the listener. "Music helps people feel more connected. Everyone has their way of showing love to the world...music has just always been my language," says Dezelle.
Karen’s music has been critically acclaimed and placed in numerous films and trailers. Most recently, she has been tasked with writing for specific film scripts and television. She has continued to collaborate with many other up-and-coming and established singer-songwriters as both a performer and a writer, as well as pursue her individual creative pursuits. Her recent songs, “I’d Go Anywhere,” “Susie’s Song,” and “Bloom, Unfold, Wither” can all be heard in motion pictures. www.karendezelle.com
