Hey, I'm Moe, and I'm from the Philadelphia area. I've been writing music for a while in my home studio, and have been experimenting with diff styles of music and poetry. I also was the Lead Vocals for a punk/ska/reggae band named The New Victims. I wrote all the lyrics for the songs, and also collaborated instrumentally as well. These are some of my works in progress... All of the songs have been written and performed by myself besides anything in which I give credit to (ex: Presence of Love).
Thanks again for listening...
I am currently looking for backing from a label to produce my album. If you are a label rep, or you know someone who is, I would certainly be very interested in talking about a future project.
Bob Marley without a doubt is my most powerful influence as songwriter/performer. The passion which is emitted from his music is unsurpassed in my eyes. Also, from being in a punk/ska/reggae band... That has a huge influence in all that I write. However, in trying not to lock myself down to a genre, I'm always listening to new music to expand my horizons.
Here are some of my musical influences:

Robert Nesta Marley, The Beastie Boys, Coheed and Cambria, Chromeo, Rancid, Sublime, The Suicide Machines, Pennywise, The Zack Attack, Alkaline Trio, Andrew W.K., Against All Authority, Bad Boy Bill, Black Belt Jones, Blink, Brand New, Brian Setzer Orchestra, Celia Cruz, Cypress Hill, Dashboard, DJ Dan, DJ Moe Train, Dolemite, Dr. Dre, Dropkick Murphy's, Eazy E, Elephant Man, Flogging Molly, Elvis Crespo, Felix Da Housecat, Frank Sinatra, George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic All-Stars, House of Pain, Ice-T, James Brown, Jay-Z, Kanye West, La Maquina, Left Behind, Less Than Jake, Lil John, LL Cool J, Ludacris, Macho Man Randy Savage, The Mars Volta, Ma$e, MC Hammer, MUM, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Milli Vanilli, The Neptunes, THE NEW VICTIMS, NOFX, Norah Jones, Andrea Bocelli, N.W.A., Outkast, Ozomatli, P.
