Music is Love
I’ll make no secret about being the Bass Player for The Moonsets. I’ve played lots of music but I Love my band the Most.
The Moonsets (formerly The Flumes) conjure up a lushly funky, dark and sparkling, intoxicating brew. Electric Harp pours out psychedelic melodies over stylin’ rhythms laced with soulful vocals. Splashing out a luscious live sound, The Moonsets transcend genres leaving you spellbound in their wake.
Harper Kayt Wallace immerses herself in 36 strings of Electric Harp, artfully bending the organic tones of this ancient instrument with wah and delay stylings as her smoky vocals sweep from whispers to roars combined with the rich grooves of songwriting partner Stephan Beattie on Bass/Guitar and the playful rhythms of Andrea Joy Norden on skins.
Acknowledged with highly commended 4 times in the Blues & Roots, Folk and World categories of the QLD Music Awards, it’s difficult to pin these musical adventurers down to one genre. Let’s just say The Moonsets create an exquisitely eclectic subtropical blend of psychedelic folk laced with soul funk, blues, jazz and a splash of reggae but be prepared to have your preconceptions blown in the best possible way.
Received warmly both on festival stages and intimate venues, The trio have performed at the following soirees as The Flumes; MONA, Folk Rhythm & Life, Woodford, Earth Frequency, Floating Land, Island Vibe, Kuranda Roots and Palm Creek festivals, and have had the pleasure to support Mojo Juju, The Church, WooHoo Revue, Kingfisha and Violent Femmes.
