Formed in August, 2009 in Long Beach, CA, The Moderates are comprised of Josh Taylor (age 19), Wes Mathison (age 19) and Garret Huff (age 20). From slow melodic hypnotic vibes similar to the likes of Coldplay to gritty guitar bellowing resembling the Foo Fighters, The Moderates prove unique to the industry and destined to make a name for themselves. Three buddies in a garage eventually transformed into a classic rock sound unique to the band not found in many acts today, let alone with members in their youth. Don’t let the ages of the musicians fool you, these are serious instrumentalists with mature lyrics who, with any luck to the public, will rock for decades to come.
