Chuck Mosley is once again barnstorming across the country on his semi acoustic Reintroduce Yourself tour. This year, however, it’s been a busy resurgence for Mr. Mosley. Last year saw VUA, who Chuck handles vocals/guitar duties in, release, Demos For Sale on EMP Records (A label run by David Ellefson of Megadeth and Thom Hazaert), he sang and played guitar on the latest from indie group Indoria, even recording an early version of his song Bella Donna for their EP, You’ll Never Make The Six, and he also managed to play over ninety shows in the USA, UK, and France. During two concerts, his old friends from Faith No More joined him onstage to celebrate the re-release of We Care A Lot, which cracked the Billboard top 200.
This year, EMP will reissue Cement’s, The Man With The Action Hair, which has been unavailable for over a decade. It was remastered by Bill Metoyer. Chuck also assumed lead vocal duties for Primitive Race, who will release their second disc, XXXXX this November through Metropolis.
During his heavy touring Chuck spit out a dozen or so new songs, which are being crowd tested each night on tour in preparation for an upcoming recording session with Top producer, Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Mushroomhead, Deftones).
“I’m fucking thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Chuck again. I’ve always been a die hard fan of the honesty in his lyrics and his deceptively simple melodies that always become earworms and soulworms.”
Suspended Animation is a dynamic rock trio from Atlanta, GA USA.
Both Alex and Todd are well-known in the Atlanta music scene. Alex has played guitar and banjo since grammar school in folk, old-time, and bluegrass groups, and lead guitar in rock bands. He has played with Larry Campbell of Bob Dylan, Phil Lesh and Levon Helm fame, Mike Dowling, Toby Walker, and David Bromberg. He is the most accomplished fingerpicker and you will hear the influence of Doc Watson, Norman Blake, David Bromberg, Merl Travis and other Delta blues musicians. Alex was an original member of The Atlanta Area Friends of Folk Music and has played in bluegrass groups including fifteen years with The Sorghum Syrup Soppers Old-Time String Band. He has also played in many diverse musical situations from The Galax Old-Time Fiddler’s convention to rock and roll bands.
Todd started playing bass in high-school bands and has since played professionally since the late ‘80’s. He has played with many local Atlanta acts and has studied with Jack Casady and Bryon House. He’s played almost every Atlanta venue and with Alex by his side his musical voice comes to fruition. Though primarily a bassist, Todd is an accomplished drummer and guitarist fronting and participating in many local musical projects.
Alex and Todd are alumni of Jorma Kaukonen’s Fur Peace Ranch. They had to go all the way to the Ranch in Ohio to meet and thank goodness they did as the love and respect for music that was germinated in the Ohio River Valley has blossomed into a musical embrace here in Atlanta, an embrace that seems to grab and include those within earshot. The interplay between Alex’s acoustic fingerpicking and Todd’s melodic bass guitar has provoked positive notices all over Atlanta. They are simply the most stunning duo around.
