Moses Guest have been a band for over 25 years and were originally based out in Colorado. Moses Guest toured the Rocky Mountain region extensively but now they call Houston, TX, home.
Their new album also titled Light drops August 4th and currently they are sharing their first single from the release and title track for your listening pleasure.
Frontman Graham Guest states of the new single “I wrote “Light” in Summer/Fall 2015. It came to me right along with “Black Road.” My daughter, Edie (9 years old) helped me with it a lot, telling me to keep certain parts and get rid of others. It’s about the all-too-common (at least for me) experience of being really excited about something or someone, then thinking that thing or person is maybe not cool at all, and finally thinking there just no way to be sure.”
Moses Guest has been creating quite a name for themselves in recent years. They have shared the stage with several high-profile acts including Moe., Steve Miller Band, JGB, Willie Nelson, Los Lobos, Leftover Salmon, String Cheese Incident, Robert Bradley’s Blackwater Surprise, Jayhawks, Lisa Loeb, Colonel Bruce Hampton & the Fiji Mariners to name a few.
For Light, the studio focus is evident. The record marks the line-up’s twentieth anniversary and is their first album release since 2007’s Best Laid Plans. The super-tight, super-polished performances and arrangements hearken back to Moses Guest’s 2002 self-titled release.
