Of all the bands that entered to win a music video worth $100k through BigandFamous.com, a teen band with a 16-year old frontwoman might be the last place you’d think you’d find the winner… and you’d be wrong. Moxy and The Influence, the teen-studded rock band that catapulted onto the Southern California rock scene this past year, is proving to be wise beyond their years.
The band has released their prized $100,000 music video (filmed in Miami with director Helmut Montoya) on BigandFamous.com this week and it’s already amassed almost 20,000 views in a matter of days. The video showcases the band’s first single ME4ME. “We couldn’t be more excited to be releasing our first video,” says Moxy Anne. “It was a really amazing experience and we love that we were able to make our video debut in such a cool way.”
Even though the band is comprised of members between 17 and 21, don’t let their youthful age fool you. This rock quartet’s influences start with 80’s rock, then head over to Jimmy Page, Joan Jett, and then all the way over to bands like Avenged Sevenfold and beyond. Speaking of the classic rock era, Moxy was recently honored to sing in the choir during Aerosmith’s hit “Dream On” at the infamous Forum in Los Angeles last week.
“We’re so incredibly excited for this band; there’s no other way to put it,” says Jason Lottmann, the band’s manager and founder of Star Crossed Artist Group. “Every week now, it’s something bigger and better for them it seems. We’re ecstatic to be working with them, as I know they’ve got something special burning here.”
If you happen to be in the USA, the band opens for Farewell, My Love at Chain Reaction in Anaheim on Thursday, August 14th, and tickets can be purchased at the band’s web store at www.MoxyAndTheInfluence.com.
