Mosie is the savory musical collaboration between Boston-based singer/songwriter/producer Jesse LeVines and musician/producer Aidan Brody. Originally, Mosie began as LeVines’ solo project with the release of his debut mixtape Soft Serve in 2015. The mixtape was written, produced, and pan-fried entirely by LeVines out of Nashadelphia Studios in Nashville, TN. After moving back to Boston, the small town Massachusetts local teamed up with Brody to begin cooking their debut studio album, Tangerine (2018). Mosie’s sound is best described as a Bratwurst Bump: a rugged sound, with a bold hip-hop backbone, smeared with crisp, tangy vocals, and luscious synth and guitar lines filling in the cracks. They take influence from old soul crooners, 80s disco, and a wide range of hip-hop, scooping them all into the sexiest sundae you’ve ever heard.
