Interview Conducted by Ixarix; PSHG Assistant Director

“The band on everybody’s lips is going to be Moxy and the Influence.”

Participants

Brock Young (Ixarix) – interviewer

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr –  Booking Coordinator

Carly Wasserman – (bassist)

Sydney Ellen – (lead guitar)

Ignacio Barrientos – (drums)

Moxy Anne – (vocalist)

This interview was carried out via Facebook messenger, and is reprint here below after the introduction.  In order to make it more manageable, it has been divided into two parts, the second half will follow tomorrow night.

Part 1

I’ve been writing for PSHome Gazette for almost two years now and in that time I’ve been fortunate enough to sit-down and interview a number of interesting people.   From developers who have been kind enough to take time from their busy schedules to talk to me about their latest games, to ordinary Home users who’ve been dear enough to share with me their uniquely decorated spaces, their favorite games and their best experiences on Home and beyond.  Each interview I’ve published is special and represents a brief moment in time where complete strangers met up for a spell, talked about things that mattered to them and then parted having gotten to know each other a little better.

So, as I sit here, typing up my recent interview with the members of the youthful rock group, Moxy and the Influence, I can’t help but smile to myself.  I think it’s because, well, it’s because I had the moxie to reach out to them in the first place in hopes of securing an interview with them. Now, I  count myself to have been extremely fortunate to have been given the opportunity to chat with this group of talented and dedicated musicians, at this precise moment in time because I firmly believe that they capable of great things and have the potential to go extremely far.

When I looked at the press release from BigandFamous.com , which Moxy and the Influence’s booking coordinator, Elisa Mohr sent to me prior to the actual interview, I was amazed to discover that the video of their original song, Take Me Down, which they had been submitted for Big and Famous’ video contest back on November 7th, had come in first, securing 76,000 over votes and winning the group  a $100,000 professionally shot music video.  Which was to be shot by Helmut Montoya.

I know a lot of up-and-coming music groups would kill for an opportunity like this.  That this opportunity had been given to a music group, whom I was poised to interview, made me all the more excited to sit-down and chat with them about the contest, their group and most importantly their music.

But some of you maybe wondering how I happened to interview Moxy and the Influnce in the first place.  How did a gamer like myself from Northern Ontario, hear about this new music group from Orange County, California?  When I stop to think about it, the possibility existed that I might never have heard of them, or if I did, it might not have been until later in their careers.

It is because Levi Vincent, known on the PlayStation Network as Director_on_Duty, the head of PSTalent, saw fit to feature Moxy and the Influence on his innovative new venture on PlayStation Home, the PSTalent Community Radio.  The Community Radio,which can be currently found on the PSTalent’s Junkmobile Sofa, is giving independent music groups like Moxy and the Influence the amazing opportunity to be heard by the entire PlayStation Home community on both the North American and European Home servers.

This is how I first found-out about Moxy and the Influence, not from my car radio, or from the internet, but from turning on my PS3, loading up PlayStation Home and rocking out to not one, not two, but three of  Moxy and the Influence original songs.  After listening to them, I knew that I had to seize the opportunity that was in front of me and reach-out to this dynamic group and see if I could discover what made them tick and do what I could to highlight their phenomenal talent just a bit more.

I asked Levi if he could help arrange an interview with the band and he graciously passed my contact information on to Elisa Mohr so that we could arrange things between ourselves. After exchanging several enthusiastic e-mails we eventually arranged to conduct the interview with the entire Moxy and the Influence band via Facebook messenger on Tuesday February 26th, 2014 at 8:30 pm PST, which was 11:30 pm my time. I made sure I had a good cup of coffee before the interview.

Additionally, Elisa asked to sit-in on the interview as well, which proved to be an invaluable suggestion.  Not only was she was able to shed much light on the group’s success from her point-of-view, but was also able to explain just how the group wound-up winning the Big and Famous contest, which, I must confess was not how I had expected it had played out. However, now that I know the truth I am extremely glad to know how they actually won the contest.

As I watched the group members log on one-by-0ne  for our interview,  I sort of felt like I was watching them come onstage at one of their concerts.  First Elisa logged on about fifteen or twenty minutes before the start of the interview to let me know the rest of the group was on their way.  Carly Wasserman the group’s terrific bassist logged in next.  She was followed in short order by Sydney Ellen the group’s awesome lead guitarist and then by the group’s ever cool drummer, Ignacio Barrientos. And this is where we’ll begin this interview, as five of us chatted briefly just before Moxy Anne, the group’s  sensational lead vocalist made her entrance.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

Hi Brock – the team will be ready at 8:30 but I thought I’d open up a chat window now so it’s easy for everyone.

Brock Young 

Awesome, I’m looking forward to chatting with the group, I see everyone logging in now.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

Moxy is en route from a class; she should be here soon.

Brock Young

No rush,  how’s everything on the west coast today?

Carly Wasserman

Just Peachy!

Sydney Ellen

Sydney’s here!

Brock Young

Yeah! Hi Sydney. Nice to meet everyone.

Sydney Ellen

Hello!

Carly Wasserman

Hey Syd… are you feeling it now?

Sydney Ellen

Oh yes… gettin’ on a plane in 2 days. *bites nails* XD

Brock Young

Is it your first time flying?

Sydney Ellen

2nd time. Doesn’t really fit well with me but it’s a good way to conquer some fears!

Brock Young

Yup. It will be over before you know it.

Sydney Ellen

I’m hoping I can sleep on the plane too.

Brock Young

That will make the trip go even fast.  Personally, I like flying, though I haven’t flown in a plane in a long time.

Sydney Ellen

It sure is an adventure I can say that.

Moxy Anne  

Hey hey everyone! Sorry I’m late.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

You’re not late – you’re 3 minutes early.

Brock Young

No sweat.

Sydney Ellen

Awesome, looks like everyone is here.

Brock Young

Yup

Sydney Ellen

You’re on time:)

Moxy Anne

Awesome!

Brock Young

Nice meeting you.

Moxy Anne 

Great meeting you too.

Brock Young

Thanks to everyone for agreeing to sit and chat for a bit, we were just talking about the big trip ahead you all.

Moxy Anne

Oh yes. Gonna be fun.

Brock Young

I can’t imagine how excited everyone is.

Sydney Ellen

It hasn’t really hit me yet… I know its happening and I’m very excited, but it hasn’t fully sunk in! Haha.

Ignacio Barrientos

I’m just thinking about the lack of sleep I’m going to have through all of this.

Moxy Anne

It kinda hit me today since I started packing today…I realized, OH. This is actually happening, amazing.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

So Brock – how do you want to work this – do you just want to go through the questions and we will nominate someone to answer?

Brock Young

Well, sure. Though I think anyone in the group can answer them since everyone is here. I’d like to have a nice relaxed conversation.

Sydney Ellen

Sounds good to me!

Ignacio Barrientos

I like that idea.

Brock Young

I printed off the questions for myself. We’ll use them as a guideline, but I may ask some questions of the group that arise out of the answers you give me. So, let’s start.  The first question has to do with the Big and Famous Contest you just won. Could you tell me a bit about that contest, how you found out about it and what it was like to actually WIN.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

Brock, if you don’t mind I can answer this best.

Brock Young

Go ahead.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

It’s my goal as a manager to get the band heard as much as possible, in whatever venue possible.

I found the Big & Famous website — I don’t exactly remember how, possibly through an internet search, etc. — and put up the lyric video for “Take Me Down” and then promptly forgot about it. We didn’t promote it or anything, mostly because the firewall on my main computer blocked the site, so it was a pain for me to go to my laptop and check on how we were doing

About a week before the contest was over, I got an email indicating that we were in the top 10.  So I went to the site and was absolutely floored to see we had over 70,000 likes.

Brock Young

Wow, so it just caught on.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

Remembering of course that each like is an individual person, because you have to enter an email address and you can only vote once. We have absolutely no idea where all the likes came from but at that point we started promoting it and I know a lot of our fans asked their friends to vote.

We were bobbing up and down between #1 and #3, and I didn’t think we were going to make it and for the last hour of voting, the site was down.

Brock Young

But you managed to cross the finish line first.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

We received an email saying that votes were still being counted, but the numbers weren’t going to be displayed until the end. We were at a show on 12/31 for New Year’s, and I got an email that the band won and I will let Moxy take it from here.

Moxy Anne

When we won, we were actually waiting to play a gig on New Year’s Eve…small venue in Bellflower, California, and they wanted us to be the first band of 2014 ever to play there. We were going to go on at midnight and got the news shortly before then in from of an email…I was at the front of the room, the other two girls (Sydney and Carly) were in the back, and we were waiting on Ignacio to get there. Elisa (mommy) opened up the email, came to the stage, and read the news over the microphone…everyone started cheering and clapping and the three of us girls ran to each other and started screaming and hugging and crying. Then, we called Ignacio (woke him up) to yell the news at him. He didn’t really have much of a reaction because he was half asleep; the news hit him a little later. That night was one of our favorite times as a band – New Year’s hit, and we all came together to embrace the future. We’re so excited. We still are!

Brock Young

So contest wasn’t necessarily on your radar until it was towards the end and it was apparent you were doing very well.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

Correct. We have no idea where those 76,000 fans came from and we sure wish they were reflected in our Facebook and twitter numbers!

Brock Young

That’s pretty amazing, what a way to start a New Year.

Sydney Ellen

It was wonderful!

Moxy Anne

Seriously. Speaking personally, it was the best New Year’s I’ve ever had.

Ignacio Barrientos

I still remember when Syd woke me up to tell me about it lol. I took me a minute to register what had happened.

Brock Young

lol

Sydney Ellen

I felt so bad waking him up because he was resting before our gig but I just HAD to tell him the news!

Brock Young

Well, I think he was glad he was woken for that. What do you remember about that night Carly?

Ignacio Barrientos

Honestly I was stoked haha. It was the best news to wake up to.

Carly Wasserman

I remember screaming, crying, and hugging Sydney XD

Brock Young

It really is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I think I mentioned in my notes I sent, that I noticed that the day you submitted the video also happened to be my birthday.

Moxy Anne

Really? That’s awesome.

Brock Young

Yup, I was born on the 7th of November, so a bit of serendipity for you.

Carly Wasserman

Ahhh November babies!

Brock Young

Scorpios

Carly Wasserman

Nah, Sagittarius! November 26th

Moxy Anne 

And I’m over here in July with…Cancer??? Should I be worried? xD

Brock Young

July is a good month too. We touched on this a bit before, but I’ll ask again, are you all set for the big trip east?

Carly Wasserman

NOPE ahahah.

Sydney Ellen

I think Sydney is! I’m pretty much packed…But I like to be prepared in general.

Moxy Anne

It’s gonna be a full production. Hair, makeup, full set days…The nice thing is, they’re providing a lot. However it’s daunting because we have to be ready for pretty much anything. I’m emotionally ready.

Brock Young

The life of a performer, nice.

Ignacio Barrientos

Stressful life of a performer to be exact.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

It’s going to be a whirlwind trip. They were supposed to be shooting on Saturday and Sunday only, and we were going to take Friday to relax and get adjusted to the time change. But one of the venues we’re shooting at is only available on Friday morning, so they have a call time of 7am on Friday, and Sydney’s flight arrives at 7:55am!

Brock Young

Wow.

Moxy Anne

Super happy fun time!

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

So they’re starting at the venue without her, she’s going to get off the plane, grab a shower, and get to work, they are going to be very tired when this is all over – now shooting Friday morning until 1 pm, Saturday, and then Sunday

Brock Young

No time to sit and worry.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

Yup

Sydney Ellen

Just the way I like it!

Brock Young

A good tired though.

Moxy Anne

Productive tired. At the end, we’ll have gotten so much done I’m excited.

Brock Young

You’ll have a professionally shot video at the end of it. A lot of groups would love to be in that position.

Ignacio Barrientos

I think it’s truly an amazing opportunity.

Carly Wasserman

It’s really crazy and I think I speak for all of us when I say we’re truly honored.

Sydney Ellen

It is a great opportunity. Plus, through most of our music we try to convey a positive message. And this is an incredible opportunity to get our message out to the public and share our words.

Ignacio Barrientos

I agree with Carly. It’s took us all by surprise and we’re just happy to be in this position.

Moxy Anne

This is the kind of thing that people dream about doing…and now we actually get to live our dream. This will create material we can use, memories we will have for the rest of our lives. It’s going to be wonderful…and I honestly can’t wait

Brock Young

What did the rest of you think of the contest when you heard you’d been entered, and that you were doing so well.

Moxy Anne

When I heard about it, I originally thought that it couldn’t be true. Like, 75,000 votes??? Nah. They’re messing with us.

Brock Young

lol

Sydney Ellen

I’m with Moxy, we really couldn’t believe it.  We kind of laughed it off for a bit.

Carly Wasserman

To be honest, I didn’t even know how to react to 76,000 likes.

 Ignacio Barrientos

Agreed, it was mind blowing.

Brock Young

I was going to ask what kind of promoting you did to get those votes. But it seems the video and the song were all you really needed.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

Rock music is making a comeback, and especially female-fronted rock.

Moxy Anne

It felt fake, and even faker was the idea that we might actually win.

Brock Young

There hasn’t really been a good new female fronted rock band in a while. Rock is the complete antithesis of a lot of the pop music that is playing on the radio these days.

 Moxy Anne

It’s hard sometimes when you put multiple girls together in a band, (or even just a group of kids) it’s hard for them to get along…I think we all know what I mean but Sydney, Carly and I just meshed right from the start. And Ignacio is the chilliest guy in the world.  Somehow, in an amazing way, it completely works.

Sydney Ellen

It totally is. I have nothing against Pop really, I think it’s great. It depends on my mood most of the time. But Rock is really close to all of our hearts and it just clicks well with us all.

Carly Wasserman

Because we’re Motley Crue buddies.

Ignacio Barrientos

Well….

Brock Young

Does it help that you’re all different ages, and come from different backgrounds?

Sydney Ellen

I think it brings in great variety to the band. Ignacio and I do tend to have a different perspective on everything, being a little bit older, and because we are all different ages we can bring in 4 different perspectives to a song, lyric, performance, etc.

Carly Wasserman

I think that it does help. We’re all at different stages in life and with all the influences we bring, like Sydney said, It bring a big variety to the table.

Sydney Ellen

It’s a really nice mix actually, and chemistry in a band is the most important of course.

Moxy Anne

Sydney and Ignacio know how to relate to college kids. Carly and I are still in the high school stage. It’s a great blend.

Ignacio Barrientos

Exactly, Sydney and I are perfectionists. We love to work on a song and make it work to the best of our abilities.

Brock Young

That shows in the songs you’ve produced so far, they all sounded really professional, and well-done.

Moxy Anne

I just let my creative side go, I’m still new at writing…and Carly surprises us all. She writes some really great bass parts.

Brock Young

So it is a truly collaborative effort.

Carly Wasserman

Nawww you guys :$

Moxy Anne

Shush xD

Ignacio Barrientos

Carly you rock. Period.

Brock Young

Being creative is fun. To have a platform to be able to share your creativity with others is pretty awesome.

Sydney Ellen

Oh yes, when each musician brings in their own style to the songs it makes it that much better.

Moxy Anne

Writing in this band is extremely cool. Occasionally we’ve come into rehearsal and started simply doing a sound check to get levels and written full new songs then and there. At the beginning, some of our songs were studio-produced…but now we’re all just loving writing with each other. It’s an amazing experience.

Brock Young

Did you always intend to create original material, or was that something that evolved over time?

Moxy Anne

Honestly? No, we didn’t always intend to create them ourselves…We’ve evolved so much over the last few months. And our songs have evolved. At the beginning, it was just a project I wanted to start. But now…we’re truly a band. We’re all so creative and so committed to doing music forever that sometimes creativity comes out even when we don’t want it to.  I can’t tell you the amount of times we’ve come into rehearsal before a big show, started sound check, come up with an idea that we wanted desperately to continue with, but had to prepare normal songs for the show.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

You know Moxy’s answering when you have to scroll up to read it

Moxy Anne -

Sorrryyyy xD I’m a singer, I say a lot.

Brock Young

So the group is still relatively new, can you give me some background, and how you all came together? Had you known each other prior to forming the band?

Sydney Ellen

Well about maybe 2 years ago, I was starting my own project and looking for a lead singer. I had talked a bit with my music instructors and one vocal teacher suggested that Moxy would be perfect for the project. (It was an original female rock band playing classic rock style music.) So I met up with Moxy and we wrote quite a bit with this former group and both of us clicked right away. We became best friends.

Moxy Anne

Still are best friends. She’s my sister

Brock Young

So Moxy was singing the style of music you were looking for already?

Moxy Anne

Sort of, early last year (I want to say January-February time period) I was accepted by DNT Agencies as one of their artists for their next year.  That meant new branding, new songs, and in my case…a new name. I had gone through a lot emotionally and mentally in the time before then and I wanted to go back to who I was when I was a child. When I was younger, Moxy was a name my grandpa called me, because I was blunt and said whatever I thought, no matter who it insulted. Haha! I try to stick to that original spirit of truth…and Moxy reminds me that I still can. That’s why I want to be Moxy now, and why I’ve taken on that name. It helps me stay true to who I always have been, but anyways.

Brock Young

I have to say, Moxy is a pretty cool name for someone fronting a rock band. How did you meet up with the other members of the group, Carly, and Igancio?

Carly Wasserman

I actually happened to be on my iPod and I accidentally clicked on the craigslist app, I found this band purely by accident. We had the same musical interests and it was a perfect fit!

Brock Young

Wow.

Moxy Anne

For a while, being Moxy was just a project that I was doing. I didn’t need a band or other people working with me or anything. But then…we were contacted by a promoter wanting to book Sydney and my first band for a show in Long Beach. That band wasn’t ready…but we felt that Moxy was. So I automatically went to Sydney to ask if she wanted to be a part of the group. I was so happy when she said yes.  And we went from there with Ignacio, then Carly.

Ignacio Barrientos

Trying to keep up with the walls of text actually haha.

Sydney Ellen

When your best friend asks if you want to play more music with them you can’t just say no. I was very excited to start a new project

Moxy Anne

First it was just “oh will you do me a favor.” Then it turned into “can we start a band?”

Brock Young

That’s pretty cool.  How did Ignacio become a member of the group?

Moxy Anne

Then it was onto a search for drummer and bassist, (which is actually harder than you’d think)

Brock Young

Finding the right people is the key for a group. It can take a long time.

Ignacio Barrientos

Drummers are always hard to find, at least good ones haha.

Moxy Anne

The first drummer and bassist we worked with were also friends of mine and Sydney. Just doing favors for us. Then we started the real process. And Ignacio turned out to be perfect from the beginning…

Ignacio Barrientos

A friend of mine told me to check out a page called, “Moxy Anne” on Facebook. I looked at the page and I loved her music so I decided to message Moxy on her Facebook page hoping she would need a drummer. She told me that she already had a drummer and wasn’t looking for one…About 2 weeks later she messaged me back and told me her drummer had recently dropped out of the band and she needed someone so I auditioned for her and luckily we all clicked

Brock Young

When find a good people, you try to hold on to them.

Moxy Anne

Exactly. And from there we found Carly, who clicked as well Craigslist was completely random but somehow it worked!

Brock Young

Moxy’s music is influence by 80′s rock music. What is it about the music of the 80s that inspires you so much?

Sydney Ellen

The fashion! (for me at least).

Carly is the 80s Queen however…

Brock Young

There was a lot of great music that came out of that decade.

Ignacio Barrientos

Haha we all love how Carly brings her 80′s influences into band rehearsals and our whole band scene in general.

Carly Wasserman

Well for me, the 80′s were a time when the greatest music (in my opinion) started to rise. Bands like Motley Crue and Gun’s N Roses basically started a revolution of pure raw rock n’ roll.

Moxy Anne

It’s not just the 80′s either…I am an 80′s girl at heart. All three of us are. But we’re all inspired by good music from all different time periods

Brock Young

I lived through the 80′s.

Carly Wasserman

Motley Crue (if you didn’t notice ahaha) is my biggest influence!  Everything from their sound, image, and lifestyle just makes me so excited!

Sydney Ellen

It’s all a chain effect…. Blues inspired early rock etc.

Carly Wasserman

You’re a lucky man Brock!

Moxy Anne

For example: I am taking a music history class this semester, and right now we’re studying the late 50′s. I’m loving Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and the Everly Brothers. Next we’ll be going to the 60′s with Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, etc…I love it all. It’s all good music, and it’s all inspiring.

Brock Young

Sweet.. Jerry Lee Lewis is a MAD pianist.

Moxy Anne

Seriously!!

Brock Young

There just so many great musicians out there and serious musicians need to know about the legacy that came before them.

Sydney Ellen

Exactly!

Moxy Anne

It’s important. It’s what started it all. And the 80’s were really the climax of that awesomeness

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

Brock, I know Sydney and Ignacio have to be up early in the morning (don’t know about Carly) but they are our “gamer” experts (or as expert as we have) so we’d like to talk about PSTunes, etc. before they have to leave

Brock Young

Sure. How did you hook-up with Levi Vincent, and PSTunes?

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

That started with me – and an ad on craigslist. and Levi immediately got back to me saying he loved the band’s music.  He is amazing

Brock Young

It’s through him that I learned about the group.  He’s helped me too.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

He’s a master at promoting and he has great ideas — and beyond that he’s incredibly nice.

Brock Young

The posters he did for the group look really awesome.

EasySitePicture_5991940

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

I knew nothing about PlayStation so I immediately reached out to Ignacio and asked him what he thought of the idea

Brock Young

I think it is another terrific opportunity for the group,  because it brings them into closer proximity to Sony’s music division among other things.

Ignacio Barrientos

Exactly, so when Elisa emailed me I immediately told her that this was an amazing opportunity. PlayStation has the capability of reaching thousands of people through their own homes.

Sydney Ellen

It was fantastic,  another semi-unbelievable opportunity!

Brock Young

Did any of you know about Home before?

 Sydney Ellen

I knew about Home and the basic idea of it. So when I received information about it I was very surprised. Considering it’s a great network of people to connect.

Carly Wasserman

Unfortunately I didn’t for my PlayStation 2 is not capable of connecting to the “Home”

Ignacio Barrientos

I did personally, I have been a gamer my entire life, I started with the N64 and moved on from there. So I have been on top of the gaming scene as much as I could. I was more than happy when we had an opportunity to be featured on PS Home.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

Brock, Levi shared the first week’s stats with me, under secrecy. But when I saw the numbers I was blown away by how many people have now heard Moxy and the Influence’s music.

Sydney Ellen

I had explored a bit before in Home on my own PlayStation awhile back and this got me back to it.

Moxy Anne

And I’m the weirdo who’s always wanted to play video games but never has xD

Brock Young

It is sort of one of those out-of- the- box type things that is a unique way to promote a group.  Sony doesn’t share exact stats about how many people use Home, but we do get hints from time to time.  The other thing is that this has allowed Moxy to get exposure to music fan in both North America, and on the European server.

Elisa Moxy-Manager Mohr

Yes, that’s big, because Europe is much more into rock currently than the US is.

Sydney Ellen

Woo!

Carly Wasserman

Carly likes her European fans

Ignacio Barrientos

I love the exposure we get in Europe through this.

Brock Young

That was something I asked Levi about, if his radio was broadcasting in Europe as well as in North America.

Carly Wasserman

All my friends in the UK love their Metal! They have amazing music taste! \m/.
