MoeTar
MoeTar
MoeTar is a 6-piece ArtRock band from Oakland, California fronted by the inimitable vocalist Moorea Dickason. MoeTar’s unique alchemy blends sophisticated pop hooks with a viciously technical musical canvas. The band’s first record, 2012’s From These Small Seeds, was a bold experiment; a visionary redefinition of the traditional “rock band.” MoeTar’s latest release, Entropy of the Century (out now - Order Now) represents a maturation and crystallization of the band’s unique approach to pop and rock. The album’s 12 songs tackle the disparate issues humanity confronts as it begins a new century, cohering into an ultimately profound and redemptive musical statement that illustrates humans’ capacity to triumph over its own mistakes.
Brian Kenney Fresno
Brian Kenney Fresno
Born in Oakland, Ca., raised in the cultural vacuum of the central San Joaquin Valley, Brian has extracted the Essence of Fresno (tm), and made it smell good (hence the surname). Having already learned to play the guitar and violin by ear, in 1983 Brian found his musical destiny in the Chapman Stick, a new instrument only 8 years old.

Moved by the power and the potential of the instrument, he began an ongoing formal study of music theory and composition.
Finding that boring, he threw that all away and borrowed techniques from sports, comedians, magicians and other performers that allowed him to develop his own uncommon vision of entertainment.
