Viking Moses – AKA Brendon Massei, achieves a special balance of warmth and command, with familiar melodies that draw listeners in and oblige them to stay. Strongly lyrical songs are played out through tunes that flirt with pop, soul, and Americana, all strung together with a unique pulsing guitar, and by Massei’s robust voice, which ebbs from delicate whispers to throaty howls.
$5 presale, $8 at door. 4/10/17, 7 p.m. at MCLA Design Lab, 49 Main Street, North Adams.
