Durham, NC artist Wake Moody stays focused on good vibes, with music that fuses R&B/soul with singer-songwriter pop. “My childhood was sound-tracked by my parents’ favorite R&B, classic rock and soul records,” he explains, an influence apparent in his band’s soulful live shows, featuring hypnotic grooves and three-part harmonies.

Wake Moody’s debut EP, Shivers, released March 2019. Since then he’s played at the NC State Fair, the Eno River Festival, the Pinhook, Local 506 and more.
