Marisa Rodriguez (lead singer/guitarist/songwriter) founded the band back in 2016 and began her search for The Moths.
At the start of 2017 Marisa began working with Liam Barnes who she had known for years through the Reading music scene. He had agreed to help Marisa with recording her songs whilst she looked for more permanent band members.
In Autumn 2017 Marisa booked in some recording time with Jason Wilson (producer for bands such as Fightstar, Rueben, Dinosaur Pile-up and many more) at the renowned Stakeout Studios in Hampton, London.
Liam came in to record bass and help with guitar parts for the session and, as a favour to the drummer-less band, Jason agreed to play drums. He also invited the incredibly talented Sophie Lloyd to come in and perform a featuring guitar solo on the band’s track “69”. This recording experience caused the four of them to form a close friendship and an even stronger creative synergy.
Chris Merton, an old friend of Marisa’s, completed the band line-up as second lead guitarist in January 2018.
In April 2018 the band played their debut show at the Are You Listening? festival in Reading to a full crowd at the Purple Turtle. Since this first show they have gained a core following, playing increasingly bigger shows, including a headline slot at Readipop Festival’s second stage in July 2018.
Since the first recording session, the band have been busy developing and recording more songs. In September 2019 the band released their first single “Skin” from their debut album, due for release in November 2019 (see their music videos on YouTube). The band will be heading out on their first headline tours in the coming months. To find out more please see the Tour page.
