M. Moody Bio
M. Moody is a funk-rock/alt-soul band from Cleveland, OH. What started as a solo project for front man, Matt Miller, eventually developed into a band format over time. The rhythm section delivers a shiny, syncopated, combination of drum & bass. The unit at its core consists of Matt Miller (Vox/Gtr), Todd Marshall (Bass), and Pat Boland (Drums), with Miller being the sole songwriter.

Miller was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. He started writing songs as a teenager with early influences in 90’s alt-rock. Upon honing his craft in Nashville, he’s expanded upon his sound through entwining multiple genre’s from R&B to Neo-Soul to create something familiar yet uniquely refreshing in the rock-world. Vulnerable and slightly un-orthodox, his songs seek to evoke an emotional well-spring while integrating grooves with tightly syncopated rhythms.

M. Moody released their debut album February 9th, 2018. They’re set to release new singles and an EP in 2019. Both projects having been recorded with producer Jim Wirt.



Top Hat Black Bio
Top Hat Black cranks out bluesy pop rock that blends subtle grooves and soulful vocals in a manner reminiscent of such artists as the Alabama Shakes, Amy Winehouse, and Joss Stone. Hailing from from the birthplace of rock n’ roll – Cleveland, Ohio – the band has played Northeast Ohio’s top venues and stages, and garnered rave reviews of their throwback sound.

THB formed in 2013 when founding members Jessica Shetler and Jesse Hernandez set out to collaborate on a new project catering to their musical interests. Jessica’s lyrics and Jesse’s compositions proved to compliment each other well, and it wasn’t long before the two had built a full set of roots and blues rock songs that were turning heads.

The band released its self-titled debut EP in August of 2014, which has been well-received locally and nationally. Songs from the EP can be heard on such traditional and online radio stations as 91.3 WYSO Dayton, 88.7 WJCU, 98.3 WVLP Valparaiso, 91.1 WRUW, 87.7 Cleveland Sound, and Radio Flote.
