Wyatt Moss-Wellington

Wyatt Moss-Wellington is a progressive folk musician, an idiosyncratic vocalist and guitarist, a composer of humanistic narratives in songform and a swell bloke.

He currently provides mandolin and vocal services to bombastic Sydney newgrass band The Lunch Mothers and steals occasional time to work on a third studio album.

Moss-Wellington’s second album, Gen Y Irony Stole My Heart, released in 2011 and has been called “sophisticated … touching … enchanting … beautiful” (Sydney Morning Herald); “He can reach places with his writing that others can’t” (Alternative Media Group); and, “Should come with a sticker that reads: Warning: guaranteed to destroy all your staid, stereotypical notions of folk music for good … unerring humanity … scholastic rigor … downright titillating … deranged therapy” (Progression magazine)....

”Most guitar-strumming singer-songwriters are dull, and the rest tend to sound relentlessly like themselves, as though personal style outweighs universal substance. Wyatt Moss-Wellington turns that on its head, challenging preconceptions of song structure, guitar and vocal techniques, subject matter and stylistic homogeneity. Yes, there may be an element of the Sydneysider still searching for the real him, but much more prevalent is the rampant surprise as the listener is bounced between satire and aching tenderness, power chords and delicate finger-picking - sometimes all within one line! Moss-Wellington makes most of his peers sound like they have never fully considered the breadth of options open to them. This is an auspicious debut.” John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald
