The Moondoggies

The Moondoggies are a four-piece band from Seattle that plays timeless American music. Warm three-part harmonies, gothic Rhodes organ, and wanderlust guitar mark a sound rooted in boogie blues and cosmic country; whip-smart songwriting leads to hook-heavy tunes that bristle with originality. Led by 22-year-old singer/guitarist Kevin Murphy, the Moondoggies are intent on artistic balance. They’re a serious band with a silly name. They play music that speaks of travel but is strongly connected to its place of origin. They’re young musicians continuing a legacy that goes back generations. Songs that unravel over seven sinuous minutes are somehow catchy and compact.

Looking for a classic rock group with a lot of soul? Look no further. These guys have heart and soul in each note. They've done Bob Dylan covers. But I have to say it was Its a shame, Its a pity that grabbed a hold of me.Its so Neill Young. I just had to find more of their music.

Kevin Murphy is the lead singer of the band. He does many acoustic sets which makes him all the more wonderful. His voice alone is a mighty storyteller of feelings. I dunno why, but he reminds me a little of Zach Galifianakis. Perhaps its the beard.

Words get overused
Lose all meaning too
Oh I’ve been such a fool
So I’ve been told
So I’ve been told

I’ll do whatever it takes to set my heart free
I’ll do whatever it takes to set my heart free-the undertaker by the moondoggies
