Modern-folk and husband/wife duo Moody Little Sister has met and magnetized audiences’ imaginations since their 2015 debut album Wild Places. The recording was produced by folk-rock icon Pete Droge. Drumming genius Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant and Allison Krauss, Joe Henry, Elton John) propelled Moody’s album to even wilder places…

Described as “masterly” (Oregon Music News) and “earthy and approachable” (Bitch), these are not songs charging toward the mainstream on waves of electromagnetic radiation. This is not a band spraying buckshot for new fans. Moody Little Sister has built a loyal community around their music the old-old-old fashioned way: one listening room, house concert, front porch and campfire at a time.

The Music…

In the tradition of dynamic duos, Naomi Sparrow and Rob Stroup’s music is strongest where pulled in two opposite directions. Hear it in celestial and down-home to Catholic confessional and big tent revival to dusty and delicate. Sparrow’s dexterous voice offers both the familiar warmth and soul sensibility of 70’s singer-songwriters like Leon Russell, and lyrical daring of folk-pop singers like Patti Griffin or Anais Mitchell. Stroup takes the road-worn, rootsy approach of John Moreland, Jason Isbell and early Ryan Adams.

The Inspiration…

Having called Alaska, Oregon, and New Mexico “home” over the past seven years, Moody Little Sister’s music contains an expansive landscape. Their New Folk of the American West captures the dust storms and tsunamis of the heart. They’ve covered the ground traveling in their van (along with a big fluffy dog named Triton), making a near-constant life on the road between Anchorage and Albuquerque. Hear their connection in effortless harmonies and each resounding moment of performance that emotes both confidence and vulnerability.

Some bands make big gestures. Moody Little Sister, in their music and kinship they share with their listeners, meets our 21st-Century Emergency with urgent intimacy.
