Moxy and The Influence is a rock 'n roll band fronted by powerhouse vocalist Moxy Anne. With band members aged between 16 and 21 years old, they have a sound that defies their age.

High energy Rock and Roll, best when played at full volume. With ages ranging from just 17 to 21, Moxy and The Influence are four young Southern California rockers who bring it with power and drive to every performance. Their female-fronted sound is a modern mix of all that was great in the 80’s hard rock scene, and all that continues to move audiences today. Performing mostly original material, now and then they feature a cover with their own energy and style.

Bursting onto the Southern California rock scene in late 2013, this young band surprised audiences with hit-worthy original rock songs combined with a high-energy stage performance complete with headbanging and crowd interaction. Catchy lyrics infused with a message of individualism span generations.

Their face-melting performances have been witnessed at such iconic venues as The Whisky A Go-Go, The House of Blues Anaheim, The Orange County Fair, The Coach House, M15, Silverlake Lounge, and Chain Reaction.


Moxy and The Influence received an early industry nod with an HMMA (Hollywood Music in Media Award) nomination in 2013 and an OC Music Awards nomination in early 2014.

On December 31, 2013, the band was notified that they had won a $100,000 fully-produced music video from That video (ME4ME) was released in summer 2014.

The end of 2014 brought more accolades. Moxy and The Influence received the HMMA award for the 2014 Rock Song of the Year for their song Vampire Valentine, and Music Connection Magazine named the band to their annual Hot 100 Live Unsigned Artists list.

Grog: Die So Fluid @ The Conservatory (Santa Ana, CA) 03-04-15 Jack Lue Series

Die So Fluid first surfaced in 2001, touring the country in the wake of their debut e.p. ‘Operation hypocrite’, released on Sanctuary. They released a further single, ‘suck me dry’ with Sanctuary before forming their own label, Cartesian, and releasing their third single ‘Disconnected’. In 2004 Cartesian released the band’s debut album, ’Spawn of Dysfunction’ in the UK. The album was universally well received and is still selling through the major chains of the UK and itunes worldwide.

Band web sites:

Grog has played bass and sung backup, live and recorded for Melanie C, the Kelly Osbourne band, The Ailerons with Dave Rowntree (Blur) and Mike Smith (Gorillaz), producer Damian LeGassick, and also keyboards for appearances with Kelly and Ozzy Osbourne for the ‘Changes’ single. She is bass player in ‘The Black and Blue Orkestre’ with film writer/director Tom DiCillo and Will Crewdson. Her services have been requested for work with Kylie, Goldfrapp, Bryan Ferry, the Revolting Cocks, and she continues to be a sought after session musician when Die So Fluid duties allow.

Al has played and recorded drums with The Selecter, Skaville UK, Gigantic (ex Flesh For Lulu), Laurel Aitken, Prince Buster, Lee Scratch Perry, has made tv appearances with Shania Twain and has a grammy for the Lee Scratch Perry album ‘Jamaican ET’.

Drew has played guitar for Miranda Sex Garden and Xmal Deutschland, he has written music for several animations and Disney television programmes. His original score for the feature documentary ‘The Mindsape of Alan Moore’ has been added to the British Library's archive.

Promotion of ’Spawn of Dysfunction’ almost solely relied on the band touring the UK which they did tirelessly, turning up for over 300 shows between 2003 and 2006. Apart from pursuing a campaign of playing their own shows off the beaten track Die So Fluid supported bands like Drowning Pool, Vex Red, Clawfinger, Boy Hits Car, Feeder, Girlschool, Antiproduct and The Wildhearts. Further promotion of the album came from a single release of the title track licensed to Retinue records which was supported with a video featuring the babes and the fighters of a metal wrestling event.

Recording for ‘Not everybody gets a happy ending’ started in 2005 with the album’s opening track ‘Gang of one’. The finished recording was so good it actually caused a crisis within the band as they mutually agreed the song was the pinnacle of what they had been trying to achieve musically on ’Spawn of Dysfunction’. But in the end it was this realization that freed them to explore a wider range of influences and styles. So songs like ‘Existential Baby’ and ‘Test Confessional’ draw on Al’s ska background and ‘Throw you away’ features an Egyptian string arrangement thanks to one of

Drew’s colleagues in, Gypsy troupe, The Death Orchestra. The finished record is the product of multiple sessions scattered over a two year period. This ungainly recording schedule was adopted because the record was being financed by royalties from ‘spawn’ - as they trickled in. For ‘Not everybody gets a happy ending’ Mark Williams was back in the producer’s chair at his new premises in the legendary Battery studios building in north west London The title track was partly fueled by the long drawn out recording process and, at the time, no prospect of a release. That changed in 2007 when the band found a new backer in Finland and finally ‘Not everybody gets a happy ending’ was made flesh. First single ‘Happy Halloween’ was released worldwide on iTunes on November 2nd 2007 and coincided with a Halloween festival appearance in Helsinki and Die So Fluid’s portrait by

Paul Harries appearing on Finnish postal stamps. The esteemed rock photographer, and long time associate of the band, also directed the video for second single ‘Existential baby’. 'Not everybody gets a happy ending' was released in the UK in February 2008 to a great response and immediately entered the retail sales charts. The band then diligently followed the cascade of international releases – touring Finland, the USA (twice), Germany and the rest of Europe, appearing in nearly 20 different countries in 2009. As well as headlining festivals in Portugal, Germany and Switzerland Die So Fluid supported Eisbrecher, Mindless Self Indulgence, My Ruin, Ill Nino, Maj Karma, and Prong.
