VON STRANtz and the mosleys
Von Strantz, two Chicagoland sisters estranged from birth, with two different upbringings, from across the continent finally meet. They took their now known commonalities and in 2013 joined their last names Von Strantz to create music and art from life’s adversities
Utilizing a variety of instruments such as violin, cello, keys, guitar and feet percussion, Von Strantz unites harmonies strung together by commanding and soulful lyrics. With story-sharing as their passion. Von Strantz invites their audience into the emotion of each piece. In 2015 Von Strantz won “Eddie’s Attic Songwriting Shoot-out”. The duo has traveled extensively performing many festivals and venues including Electric Forest, Hard Rock Cafe, Schuba’s, Paper City Music Fest, Audiofeed, Starry Night ,Steel Bridge Music Fest, Mile of Music, and has shared the stage with some of their favorite artists, My Brightest Diamond, Josh Garrels, Crystal Bowersox, Over The Rhine, Howie Day & A Silent Film to name a few. Von Strantz is also Sofar Sounds Alumni.
The Mosleys began on a quiet, dark front porch in 2014, when Rachel and Stephen Mosley stepped out the front door to relax and play some music after putting their five children to bed. With the encouragement of their neighbors, they found themselves playing - and winning - an Open Mic competition at Zac Brown's Southern Ground in Senoia, Georgia. From there, they were invited to record at Southern Ground's Crow's Nest Studio in Atlanta. Their EP, Beneath the Trees and Stars, was written and recorded in a matter of months in 2014.
Rachel and Stephen have quickly earned opportunities to share the stage with talents such as Liz Longley and Harpeth Rising, opened for Air Supply at Chastain Park, played the Wire & Wood Festival in Atlanta, and have performed for the past few years at the prestigious 30A Singer Songwriter Festival in Seaside, Florida. In 2016, The Mosleys were Songwriting finalists at the Wild Goose Festival and Artists on the Rise at Escape to the Lake in Indiana. This summer, they were honored to be NPR's Folk Alley artists of the month.
You can find them playing around Atlanta and the Southeast, often at Eddie's Attic and any festival where The Indigo Girls are playing - nothing beats those front row seats. They'll be staying close to home this Fall, as there's a new album in the works. The Mosleys are working on their first full album. Look for it in the Spring of 2017. They recently released a single, Quiet on the Porch, in the summer of 2016.
