“If the DIY house show circuit has a pied piper, his name is Brendon Massei. Massei, who plays music under the name Viking Moses, has been recording and touring independently as a full-time job since he was 14, and he’s spent more than half of his life paving trails for other musicians to follow. Artists that Massei took on their first tours include: Deer Tick, Scout Niblett and Nat Baldwyn of the Dirty Projectors.”
“Viking Moses is ‘The Most Uniquely talented musician since Kurt Cobain… an absolute genius, and one of the best musicians I have ever released.”
(Alan McGee in The Guardian)
“Viking Moses is one of those people you can’t help but liking, because he’s so DIY and down to earth even though he’s got a tremendous talent. He is one of the few people in the world to have silenced Tony Wilson when he played, and as a result many of Tony’s colleagues now carry their own Viking Moses doll with them, just in case.” (Tony Wilson)
