Mo is a piano player, singer, and songwriter who has actively pursued musical projects since childhood. He currently plays keys in the Sugar Snaps, a high-energy, eight-piece soul/funk/R&B band based in midcoast Maine. He also regularly participates in a Celtic jam session with some of the best players of that style in the region.
Past musical endeavors have included original projects, a funk/disco group, a fusion band, choirs, musical theatre, and even a recording in a stuffed animal.
From 2009–2018, he sang, arranged, and sometimes directed the Boston a cappella group variously known as Immutable, Funkin’ A!, and Downtown Crossing. Prior to that, Mo was the original keys player in the 14-piece Booty Vortex (2004-2006), which played writhing sold-out shows at local clubs.
Mo also spent many years as songwriter and bandleader in a series of Boston groups with various musical configurations. The piano-pop quartet Fragile Alex (2003-2004) was lauded for its “sweet, lovely songs” by The Boston Globe while the group hit venues and colleges around New England; they received local airplay and made The Noise‘s Top 30 radio chart in March of 2004. Prior groups included Chalk Circle and Schrödinger’s Cat.
