Mossy Moran, with his heated style of Irish traditional and contemporary music, hails from Ireland's southeast coastal city of Waterford. In his first band at age 15 Mossy lead with incredible vocals that kept his Irish fans coming back for more. As his talent grew, so did his audiences. At age 19 Mossy made his act a solo one, singing songs and telling stories of the Irish People all over Ireland’s southeastern coast. He made a break for the United States in 1996 to sing his foot stomping brand of Irish music here.
"You just can't believe that he is just one voice and a guitar!" is often heard by audiences on hearing Mossy perform for their first time. His deep baritone voice coupled with a thundering velvet hand on his guitars cause people to stop and listen. His Irish wit and stage presence are infectious. Derek Warfield of the Wolfe Tones commented that Mossy is one of the finest Irish solo acts he's seen in years. Danny Doyle, Ireland's finest Balladeer, believes Mossy is on his way to great things as he keeps his country's history alive with songs and stories from the past and present. No one can sing 'em like Mossy can!
Mossy released his latest album, “Hard Times,” and included some family and friends he’s met along his journey in the US. A beautiful, strong compilation of songs which highlight not only troubles, but the hope in all of us. “Hard Times” showcases Mossy’s talent for singing his stories to a wide range of listeners.
His second CD, “Navigator,” is his first studio production. Engineered and recorded by John Delaney, founder of the world-famous Barleycorn, this CD presents Mossy singing classic Irish ballads along with several spirited, meaningful songs which highlight the strength and character of his talent and his Irish roots. Mossy's first CD, "Mossy Moran -- Live-From Both Sides of the Pond,” was recorded live in three pubs in the U.S and in Waterford, Ireland. The best of Mossy's gigs are caught on this one great CD, including a memorable performance of "The Town I Loved So Well," a bring-to-your-feet rendition of "A Nation Once Again", and the fastest version of the "Rattlin Bog" ever heard!
