We originally formed with a sole purpose in mind. What started out as a regular jam session between Jo and Monkey (Adrian) inspired Jo to take the next step and record, not only for herself but with the determination to put together a compilation album of local musicians which would raise awareness for Auto Immune Disorders having all proceeds go to Arthritis QLD. In the early stages Jo and Erin crossed paths and it was believed a saxophone would compliment the jamming duo. This was the birth of not only “Moscato” but of 3 beautiful friendships that we feel blessed to have. Within 13 weeks of our 1st rehearsal we completed our 1st of what will be many recordings with the amazing Tom Fodor of “ Audiosapien Records” Brisbane QLD. These Original songs were placed alongside Original pieces written and performed by some of the most unique and talented musicians Mackay has to offer, all with one goal in mind, to raise awareness with an album title of “Broken Silence”. As we drove the gruelling 10+hour trip back to our hometown we were in awe of what we had achieved in such a short period. The common travellers question of “Are we there yet?” was replaced by “Wow, did that really just happen? “. Now knowing what could be accomplished our minds were filled with possibilities and we were eager to work on our next E.P. A decision was made to record in 6 months with Erin (a shower singer from way back) relieving Jo of lead vocals whose lungs (due to auto immune disorders) were not strong enough. A Huge Thankyou to Tom from Audiosapien Records who was able to create an environment where we were relaxed enough to laugh no matter what, and who everyday challenged us musically bringing forth what you hear before you. With him came Simba (Michael Simmons) the most extraordinary, genuine, warm hearted drummer who went above and beyond, , Simba, thank you so much!! We can not guarantee our music is everyones cup of tea, but this is us, this is who we are and this is what we love doing. Whether this disc makes you smile, want to relax, want to dance or take a step back to notice what is going on in the world even for a second then it has all been more than worth it,, and even if it doesn’t have this effect … we will just keep on recording and releasing because it’s what we love. This is us, we are “Moscato” and we thank you from the very bottom of our heart for allowing us to share with you our music. We hope you enjoy it!! Xxxx Erin, Jo and Monkey
