Neil Gowans & The Winos
Neil Gowans and The Winos play countrified power pop and roll; tuneful rock ‘n’ roll with a touch of new wave attitude, a smidgeon of country and just a soupcon of Northern Soul.
Mosa Wild are Jim Rubaduka (Lead Vocal/Guitar/Keys), Alex Stevens (Guitar), Edwin Ireland (Bass), and Charlie Campbell (Drums).
Jim and Alex began making music together at school and on coming to the end of their studies they formed The Intermission Project, which was just that, a project of making music while deciding whether or not to go to university.
After that year, Jim & Alex serendipitously picked up Charlie & Edwin. The intermission would soon be over, making way for something different with a new focus. The four guys - based around Ashford UK - were now a new collective called Mosa Wild and headed in a fresh direction.
The band name Mosa Wild is derived from Jimʼs Grandfather, who’s name is Mosa, and putting his name next to wild simply felt right. Mosa Wild reflects the band as being both personal and connective, experimental and expansive.
Their first offering is the dark and stormy ‘Smoke’. Showcasing Jim’s rich baritone vocals, reminiscent of The National, and backed by lush instrumentation that recalls the likes of Justin Vernon and The Mac- cabees, 'Smoke’ is loaded with emotion yet there’s a maturity here which holds back just enough to leave you wanting more.
