Music from the Afterlife - A new musical world for Moxie

Moxie for those unfamiliar with the group is a Sligo/Limerick based trad band consisting of Ted Kelly (tenor banjo), Jos Kelly (button accordion/keyboard), Darren Roche (button accordion), Cillian Doheny (tenor banjo/guitar) and Paddy Hazelton (percussion).

Their music consists of jazz, rock, bluegrass and world music rhythms creatively structured around a traditional base including many of their own compositions.

Their debut album, Planted followed very much in the path of other boundary-pushing artists like Rynne, Talty, McSherry and others, seeking freedom in an expansive form of traditionally inspired music. Planted was well received and the band are now moving onto a series of new releases starting with Afterlife, which they say is “a glimpse into the next Moxie dimension, sharp and uplifting Irish gypsy punk with attitude”

“After the release of our first album, we decided to give ourselves time to grow and experiment. We spent the last four years adventuring into different musical worlds and composing in various styles. This lead to us creating some very original and interesting music. We never give each other boundaries or set limitations.”

“Learning to play many new instruments and taking advantage of the richness of music technology has given us more options for our live sound. The use of these new instruments such as synthesizers, electric guitars and variety of percussive instruments has given us a deeper understanding and scope of what we can do with our compositional skills and how we can use these instruments with our traditional ones to blend a sound that for us represents a present form of Irish music represented by the multicultural world which we live in today.”
