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).
strait 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.
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. ---

is a unique story of a teenage part-time prostitute
who spends her earnings buying ice cream for neighborhood
children, and of the man who obsesses over her from

lives. However, the approach of this story intends
to transcend taboos and judgment to offer the listener
a vast spectrum of the emotion and ideals of the
characters, setting and circumstance.

day be sung by Dolly Parton, and so pays tribute
to her work and inspiration.
