Who is this guy?
For as long as he can remember the young man felt the music coursing through his soul. No matter the day's activities and distractions it seemed music was ever present with melodies and lyrics in his thought processes. So it was natural for him as he grew older to explore how he could incorporate music more fully into his life. He and his friends started a high school band playing wherever they were allowed.
After high school he trekked to Los Angeles because at that time if you were serious about music that is where you went, sleeping in his car to save money for pay for studio time. He met, and played with a lot of veteran professional musicians gleaning industry and composition knowledge from everyone he encountered,
Returning back home he founded a group called The New Occupants that delved into a new music genre - EDM. This talented group produced a number of electronic dance tunes that quickly earned significant international acclaim. Despite this success the man was unable to completely sate his musical muse because he was finding his primary love, musical composition could not be limited to just one genre. More and more he was drawn into studio production work so that his wide ranging muse could be released to develop music in a variety of formats, and for a wide variety of purposes.
During this time he won a number of awards for his work, including a Cleo in the advertising industry and developing music for numerous industries and commercial productions. He became sought out for his production talents. But still the man felt something missing in his work.
A few years back the man awoke from a dream to recognize the missing component was his initial foundation of developing and playing full songs as he did in his youth. He drew upon those long-ago memories to introduce an imaginary childhood friend by the name of Mr. MooQ who would serve to provide voice to his desire to once again return to some of the roots of his musical motivations.
Mr. MooQ has worked hard to refine and evolve his musical sound into a hybrid genre that he refers to as EDM-Lite/Synth/Pop. Calling upon his life experiences this new music reflects on life's intricacies and nuances combining thoughtful and witty lyrics with catchy melodies that often are very 'danceable', but also thought provoking. Check out Mr. MooQ's latest musical efforts. You might just find that musical voice for which you have been looking.
