Town Music is the Mosswoods' full length debut. Six original songs, along with original interpretations and arrangements of classics by Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Merle Haggard, Ma Rainey, and Townes Van Zandt.


The Mosswoods

Country soul comes from the highways and the railways that run between Memphis, New Orleans, Nashville, and Muscle Shoals. Country soul means songs about midnight trains and broken hearts; living, loving, and drinking hard; and about leaving town, or just leaving, without a goodbye.

Equipped with record collections from the country soul South and roots in Oakland funk, the Mosswoods are a 6-piece country soul ensemble: horns, rhythm, and Nancy Lake’s vocals. They bring together classic and original country songs in the style of the great soul, rhythm and blues that came from the Mississippi Delta in the 1960s. 

Find them in the Bay, wherever real dance parties are going down.
