about

A selection from the 2013 release "X-ING"...


ABOUT "X-ING"
Genre-dodger Bret Mosley follows up his critically-acclaimed debut Light & Blood with a soulful, funky, bluesy roots offering…something like Motown meets O Brother, Where Art Thou? X-ING showcases his power & intensity as an interpreter of song as well as the penchant for emotional and spiritual depth found in his own folk-meets-funk/roots Americana-meets-soul compositions.

In the age of mp3 single track downloads, X-ING was put together with particular attention given to album flow. Produced between tours 2011-2013 in Charleston, SC at Awendaw Green and Plowground Productions, the effort features four re-imagined covers and two originals. The record was mixed and mastered at Innsbruck Studios in NYC by Roman Klun (Sarah McLachlan, Joan Osborne, Spin Doctors).

The songs are stripped down to Mosley's "one-man power duo" instrumentation: dobro, stompboard and vocals. Known for his unlikely "uncovers” such as Bowie's "Modern Love" and Prince's "I Would Die 4 U", Mosley also weighs in with strong originals “Lawrence, KS” (recorded unplugged with one mic in one take) and “Hope” - a spirited, sanguine ode born of gratitude toward fans, friends and family.

about

Bret Mosley Brooklyn, New York

Rarely could an artist be said to transcend, yet include, the most raw and real elements of blues, roots rock, soul & funk. Nevertheless—with bone-deep authenticity—that’s exactly what Bret Mosley does, wrestling deftly with longing, belonging & world-weariness...on the way home to hope & grace. Bret has shared the stage with George Porter, Jr., Trombone Shorty & Jackie Greene - to name a few. ... more

Track Name: Modern Love
I catch the paper boy
But things don't really change
I'm standing in the wind
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try

There's no sign of life
It's just the power to charm
I'm lyin' in the rain
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try

Never gonna fall for
Modern love, walks beside me
Modern love, walks on by
Modern love, gets me to
The church on time

Church on time, terrifies me
Church on time, makes me party
Church on time, puts my trust
In God and man

God and man, no confessions
God and man, no religion
God and man, don't believe
In modern love

It's not really work
It's just the power to charm
I'm still standing in the wind
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try

Never gonna fall for
Modern love, walks beside me
Modern love, walks on by
Modern love, gets me to
The church on time

Church on time, terrifies me
Church on time, makes me party
Church on time, puts my trust
In God and man

God and man, no confessions
God and man, no religion
God and man, don't believe
In modern love

Modern love, walks beside me
Modern love, walks on by
Modern love, gets me to
The church on time

Church on time, terrifies me
Church on time, makes me party
Church on time, puts my trust
In God and man

God and man, no confessions
God and man, no religion
God and man, I don't believe
In modern love

Modern love, modern love, modern love
Modern love, modern love, modern love
Modern love, modern love, modern love
Modern love, modern love, modern love

Modern love, walks beside me
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks on by
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks beside me
(Modern love)

Modern love, walks on by
(Modern love)
Never gonna fall for modern love
