Viking Moses will be playing a free gig at lunchtime on Saturday 27th May. He'll be performing at the Railway the night before, but playing a completely different set here. More info - Facebook Event His songs have been covered by fans such as Malcolm Middleton, Devendra Banhart, Slow Club, etc, for a tribute album. Viking Moses, AKA Brendon Massei, achieves a special balance of warmth and command, with familiar melodies that draw listeners in and oblige them to stay. Strongly lyrical songs are played out through tunes that flirt with pop, soul and Americana, all strung together with a unique pulsing guitar, and by Massei's robust voice, which ebbs from delicate whispers to throaty howls.vikingmoses.com en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viking_Mosesvikingmoses.bandcamp.com facebook.com/vikingmosestwitter.com/vikingmosesinstagram.com/vikingmoses
