Moody Little Sister, a folk rock duo, will be playing here at Pops on Sunday, October 9 at 7 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Naomi Hooley and Rob Stroup form a Folk-Rock & Soul Duo out of Portland Oregon called “Moody Little Sister”. Four years ago after having to walk out on a violent crowd in a small town bar – the duo was forced to reconsider the path that most bands follow. This “Soul Searching” led them to question who they were as people, what they wanted out of their life and music, and what they wanted their fans to experience at their shows.
Moody Little Sister redefined themselves and their approach while also crafting a fresh and non-traditional way of giving music to their fan base. For the past four years – they have been performing nearly 100 shows a year in back yards, living rooms, and on large pieces of property where they have created “Camping Concerts”. Folks bring their tents and families to hang out with the band, with each other, and with nature.
Community, nature, and the inward journey are the chorus line themes to most of the band’s songs. As a result they have been regarded as “social change agents” and “community creators”. Their debut record “Wild Places” is a soundtrack for anyone on a journey to be more authentically themselves. Their live shows have been described as “transcendent” – as people are given the opportunity to experience community, nature, music with purpose, and themselves. That same transcendence was captured on their new record that they will be touring in 2016.
“There aren’t adequate words to describe the magic that Naomi and Rob bring into a living room.. Naomi’s lyrics come from a deep place within her to touch the hearts of everyone listening, and her vocal is pure honey. Together with Rob’s considerable talent on the guitar, Moody Little Sister makes for an unforgettable house concert.. Book them! Your Audience will thank you!” –
“Moody Little Sister’s performance at Britt Music and Arts Festival in the fall of 2015, proved to be strong and memorable. Naomi and Rob took the audience on an intimate journey through their original and well-shaped melodies….…Naomi and Rob are provocative performing artist and social change agents. The Britt stage will see them again.” – Donna Briggs –President and CEO – Britt Music and Arts Festival Jacksonville, Oregon- 2015
