‘Sugar’ (single to be released on 19th May 2014)
“Great Californian pop music with a dark sense of humour.” – Alan McGee
If Marc Bolan and Debbie Harry had a lovechild, she might sound like Mz. Moxy, an American singer, songwriter and musician residing in London. Born and raised in New Jersey, she is a shameless anglophile – and attributes her affliction to the following elements:
1. The early melodic discovery of Paul McCartney and Wings. 2. Crushing on John from the English Sci-Fi series The Tomorrow People. 3. Twiggy, the fashion icon.
Moxy specializes in short, catchy, retro-flavoured pop songs with a groovy beat. Lyrics are tongue-in-cheek, naughty and/or dark. Gibson guitars, Vox amps, Hammond Organs, tambourines and the occasional hand clap are all part of the sound. GoGo boots and 1960s mod mini-dresses are worn at all times.
Mz. Moxy is also the vocalist for the international anime hit Ben 10, which is seen in 187 countries, and 86 million homes in the United States alone. Moxy is apparently on former Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s iPod, as he revealed during his last year at number 10: http://goo.gl/sqkafn
Mz. Moxy has self-funded her career with a harmless hustle – suing her friends (and being sued) on LA-based TV court shows, enduring the wrath of Judge Judy et al. Moxy also won $10K on a TV game show. Other career highlights include: photographing Bill Clinton in the hysterical throws of laughter at her “Bill is Elvis” badge (http://goo.gl/VmuLYq) and carolling her Christmas song /Duran Duran cover ‘Hungry Like The Elf’ on Simon LeBon’s doorstep: http://goo.gl/FeRH5w.
