MoeTar's debut masterpiece

MoeTar is a band that will surprise you in many ways, their unpredictable sound of artprog and classic rock. Their melodies that should make Sparks proud or their complex songstructures that you haven´t since the days of Zappa, you can also add traces of Gentle Giant and Kevin Gilbert into this musical mess and you´ll get the Bay Area band MoeTar. They are Moorea Dickason - Lead Vocals, Tarik Ragab - Bass, Matthew Charlea Heulitt - Guitar, Matt Lefobsky - Keyboards and Dave Flores - Drums. Their debut "From these small seeds" is as adventurous as an album can get and it´s also total extasy for a music freak like myself, I can´t think of any other word than Masterpiece. Thank you and goodnight!

MoeTar - Bay Area-based modern progressive rock band.

Bay Area-based modern progressive rock band, MoeTar, collects seemingly disparate and opposing sonic forces to create a coherent artistic statement for their Magna Carta Records debut, From These Small Seeds.


On paper the music shouldn't work at all. The band flies in the face of logic, yet not a musical note seems out of place. Flaunting their musical fluency, MoeTar doesn't avoid challenges: they appear to actively court and thrive on them. Indeed. Inherent contradictions are the subject of many of the band's songs.

Half the fun of listening to MoeTar is hearing how well all of these seemingly incompatible musical pieces fit together. Amid sonic references to Zappa, The Beatles, XTC, Gentle Giant, Stevie Wonder, Laurie Anderson and many sothers, MoeTar offers a fresh approach to prog, pop, rock, electronica and experimental music. Simply put, From These Small Seeds is the culmination of a collision of styles that seems to defy the odds.
