Check out our interview on Sound Diego!
“…The Moves Collective fit squarely into the Jam-grass mold, six musicians from varying backgrounds who seem to have one thing in common: an ability to blend together, playing offbeat songs with flashes of virtuoso instrumental talent and tight harmonies, built on swing jazz and hill music chassis, often full of surprises.”
“… Authenticity and wide-ranging influences permeate through the sound and lyrics of their music, and knowing the story behind their work brings life to their songs and paints a picture of the inspiration behind their journey. The new-grass, gypsy-folk sound of “Yonder Blue” is inspired by their travels and brings worldly elements to their music that present auditory appeal from coast to coast. Southern California breeds a lot of great music but we can definitely use a heavy dose of some grassy soul, and The Moves bring a myriad of musical sounds to the stage to keep you movin’ and groovin’.”
