Oregon-based Woody Moran and his seasoned combo keep it simple and live-in- studio, emitting a forthright likability that’d make Moran perfect for gig situations on the winery circuit or festive hotel events. Breezy tunes such as “Gringo in Paradise,” thanks to Moran’s breathy, confident tone and the band’s splashes of bright, sunny colors, add up to a carefree, beachy atmosphere that aims to put smiles on faces. “California Grey” pokes fun at the Golden State, while the neo-reggae tune “Light It Up” will appeal beyond the avid herbsters in the crowd. Moran’s a relaxed, genial artist whose music conjures a kinder, gentler, friendlier world, one we can all experience, at least for a short while. He and his mates would be ideal for a film/TV beach party scene.
